In my initial post, I did mention that the events were open. Perhaps I could have made it more obvious?

Thank you so much to everyone wishing me well. I appreciate the support!

Hi all!

Took some time off to focus during midterms, but I'm back with updates!

The dinner with a sister did not happen. She had to reschedule, but ultimately did not contact me for another time. I'm disheartened, and it's difficult not to read too much into this.

However, I did receive an email this weekend about ABC's COB events. The first one will be tomorrow: a two hour Meet-n-Greet! I plan on attending, but I'm hoping for more luck this time around.

Guys, I have a BIG update.

Yesterday, I received a call that I AM BEING OFFERED A BID!

When I got the call, I could scarcely believe it. I had only met these girls a few times, and while I had a great time at the Meet-and-Greet with ABC this weekend, I had no idea this would happen. But it did! The sister who called me said that the sisters liked speaking to me and really saw me as part of their sisterhood.

I'm so happy for you! Obviously I'd like to know where you ended up, especially if you're sisters with me, but if you choose not to share that information I'll still be thrilled

Thank you all so much for the support!

The reason I have not disclosed the name of my chapter is, well, I haven't accepted my bid yet!

While I would have loved to accept it yesterday, I knew I needed to think through the financial and time management aspects of being in a sorority. The ABC sister was very understanding, and said she would give me time. Additionally, she said that there is one more ABC COB event this week, and that if I still felt unsure, I was welcome to attend and meet more sisters.

I hope you figure out a way to make it work. This is a lifetime opportunity, and I'd hate to see you have regrets down the road if you declined. If you can make the financial aspect work, I would accept the bid. Not everyone has to go to everything...you can probably make the time management work.

Huh?? I am confused. I sort of thought you had done this part BEFORE participating in rush again.

It was something I had thought about before, yes! But I didn't find out until yesterday what exactly dues were, and how ABC manages required events and fines (I actually did NOT know you could be fined for missing events-- I should've made an account on this website months ago!) But, I did work it out with the sisters I spoke to.

So, tonight... I ACCEPTED MY BID!
Which means I am now a member of...



























Wait for it...
