Geez...well, there goes my theory that I figured that one out. Does the Gamma Phi house also sleep about 60? Making my chart also and trying to connect the dots. I know at least one house that also has a crest on the floor, apparently that is not unique.

Upon doing further research, Gamma Phiís house sleeps 72.

This is not "Bryant Denney's" first rodeo at Alabama. It's their third iteration, according to IrishPipes: 1932-43, 1988-95, and the current recolonization. Not that the persnickety PNM would think anything of it!
We're all very happy to see them return!

WAIT A MINUTE......"National Champions" is no longer in the mix. They dropped a double legacy?!? I'm so sorry, TriDDDeltgirl!

Thereís been so much talk recently about legacies that I had done some Googling about the different sorority legacy policies, and I found this oneís to be particularly interesting, for a couple of reasons:

1) Thereís no mention of grandmothers qualifying a PNM as a legacy for this group. So, if TriDDDeltgirl had been in a different sorority, Grandmaís membership would not in itself make DD4 a legacy. Daughters/Stepdaughters and Sisters/Stepsisters. Thatís it.

2) The decision to give preference to a legacy is left up to the chapter, which must clearly state their position in their chapter policies. It is encouraged that they include legacies for at least one invitational round, but that is not required.

From the looks of things, National Champions had no desire to keep those particular legacy ties.

I work with a DDD and her mother is one also. When my friend's daughter went thru at Ole Miss (neither mother nor grandmother went to Ole Miss),she said her daughter was a double legacy. Now whether or not she knew what she was talking about is another question!

Here's another though: as far as I can tell, we don't actually know if DD4 was released by Tri-Delt. It may be not that common, but I have known a few girls who chose to not go back to their legacy house. And I'm NOT asking TriDDDeltgirl to share whether DD4 was released since I think that's personal and private info, I'm just pointing out something else to think about. It does happen so perhaps it did here.

TriDDDeltgirl wrote about her daughter's experience at her legacy house this way: "Apparently they didn't treat her like a legacy, so she admitted she sulked the entire round". So since DD4 didn't think they treated her well enough, she might have ranked them low. Or they thought she wasn't interested (would seem obvious to me if a PNM was sulking) and released her.

Anyhow, we don't need to know, but I did want to point out a different viewpoint.

I highly suspect that she was released. They used to do the call to tell mothers if their daughters were released from their legacy house but Alabama is too big for that. DD4 ranked National Champions low and wasn’t asked back, but that’s what she told me. I highly highly suspect that she was released by Tri Delta, I haven’t bothered pushing the issue though.

TriDDDeltgirl, I knew this was more likely, but I always like to point out another possibility since it seemed like DD4 had such a miserable time there. I've known many a legacy who wanted to chart their "own path" and not pledge their legacy house so they did rank it at the bottom.

At any rate, I look forward to the next installment and I agree with the post about forget the book, make a movie! I could see someone like Emma Stone in the DD4 role since she "does" feisty and rebel really well (like in "The Help"). Grandma would be Julia Sugarbaker with all that sass and wisdom.

Interesting casting call to find someone to play "a sister whose fingers are all the same length".

That's why a movie would be so delicious. The houses as DD4 described them, the girls (looks, sorority colors, hand signs) and especially TriDDDeltgirl and Grandma hustling all over Tuscaloosa to handle the stress! I'm ready for it to hit theaters tomorrow!
