Does anyone know if she was this kind of Xtreme Catholic when she was still in school, or did it only come about after her marriage?

Whether you felt that she conforms to her sorority's values would definitely depend on not only your political leanings but also your definition of those values. I know a bunch of KDs who are 100% behind her nomination.

I thought it was more telling that many of her own FRIENDS from college don’t think that she meets the Rhodes College values of “truth, loyalty and service.” I have a lot of friends who were her contemporaries at Rhodes in the 1990’s and they are appalled at her nomination.

I’m sure many KD’s support ABC especially with KD being so strong in the Deep South. But the Rhodes KD alumni largely do not support her nomination. And they are the ones who’ve known her for 25 years...

Then why didn’t they terminate her ass if she was so awful? It makes them look just as bad as her.

A person's political views wouldn't be grounds for expulsion.

I never heard of her before but it sounds like she had a stellar record at Rhodes.

Quoting that article in the first post: "“It is an honor for a graduate of Rhodes to be considered as a possible nominee for the nation’s highest court,” says President Marjorie Hass. “Judge Barrett excelled as an English major on campus, just as she has in her professional and academic law career.”

Barrett, originally from Metairie, LA, graduated from Rhodes magna cum laude with a B.A. in English. As a student, she was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, Omicron Delta Kappa, Mortar Board, and Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society. She was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, participated in Model United Nations, and was elected to serve on the Honor Council. Barrett was also chosen to be inducted into the Rhodes Student Hall of Fame.

After graduating from Rhodes, Barrett attended law school at the University of Notre Dame, where she graduated first in her class in 1997."

***One thing about the Supreme Court, though: political parties have been hugely surprised through the years about how certain justices have voted on certain issues. You can never know for sure.***

Four at Harvard (Roberts, Kagan, Gorsuch and Breyer) and four at Yale (Alito, Kavanaugh, Sotomayor and Thomas)

So then, is one of President Trump's reasons for choosing the ND Law Grad he didn't want to break that 4 from Yale/4 from Harvard tie?

That’s not what they are saying - they are saying she doesn’t meet the Rhodes values of “truth, loyalty and service.” Being untruthful, disloyal and shirking your obligation to serve seem like things that would pave the way for termination from your GLO.

Alumnae who knew her personally saying “Amy is my chapter sister and we lived in the house together for two years but she’s terrible” just makes them sound shallow or backstabby. It’s one thing for that to come from a classmate, it’s another to come from a sorority sister.

I agree with you. And they're her "friends"? I have some sisters I've seen on FB whose views I don't espouse at all, but I wouldn't speak ill of them.
