University of Oklahoma Recruitment

Do any of the houses make automatic grade cuts before or after the first round? If so, what's the cut off?

Isn't this treading into membership selection territory?

I'd say it's safe to assume any sorority will make grade cuts on any campus. I know that the University of Alabama has a Greek life "guide" that gives chapter GPA suggestions. Honestly, just make your GPA as high as it can possibly be!

Unless they publicize this number, it would be confidential membership selection information.

Generally I have found that those who have to ask about minimum GPA cuts are probably below those cuts. YMMV

Every NPC sorority has grade requirements. These vary between organizations, but a college GPA of 2.5 or 3.0 is typical and a high school GPA of 3.0/4.0 is pretty typical.

Specific chapter GPA requirements can vary tremendously from the official national requirements. That's what she's asking about and yeah definitely treading into MS territory.

Yep. And it really never goes down, only up.

Not necessarily. Usually there is a campus minimum to even be eligible to go through recruitment and then each chapter has their own minimum (which is the same or higher). Further, the chapter minimum may be the same as the national minimum of that sorority or it may be higher. Knowing what these numbers are is not membership selection, and is often readily accessible. Whether the sororities choose to adhere to these numbers or take grade risks is membership selection, confidential and dependent on the PNM.

Most houses know who will (most likely) be released from their house for grades before first round because it is info they have during work week. An actual 'cut' doesn't happen until voting begins and I am sure there are exceptions that each chapter can choose to exercise.

But, if your daughter is a grade risk, meaning her GPS is below a 3.0 (and chances are the cut off may be higher in some groups) then you need to explain this FACT of recruitment to her now. It will definitely be a factor in the outcome of her experience at Oklahoma.

Duh. I think that was pretty well covered in previous posts. I was replying to the specific post about the national requirements being available. I didn't see a need to beat a dead horse, but here is a full summary:

1. Schools have minimum GPAs to rush. These can be lower than any of the sororities' national or individual chapter requirements (which may exceed their national GPA requirements.)

2. Sometimes these requirements are publicized. Sometimes they are not. If they are not, then it is chapter business and part of membership selection.
