That might be how it happens at your campus, but maybe not all campuses are like that.

There are also women who go into it with an open mind but get dropped by all the houses right before pref or even before 2nd rounds are over.

I'm not trying to start anything, I just don't think it's right to mislead pnms who are reading this board to think if they 'fully participate" there will "always" be a spot for them... because that isn't always the case. It will definitely maximize their chances of finding a place, but it's not always going to happen that way.

A chapter wanted you, yet you didn't want them.

I can't really feel bad or offer advice, but I will say the following: Because you didn't think they were good enough for you, I can tell you one thing for sure - you're not good enough for them. This group of women, no matter what organization they are from, have sisterhood and sadly that is something that you won't ever see because you think you're too popular.

Is this bitchy? Absolutely...but if you're going to be superficial, can you really expect anything more?

I think the thing that PNMs fail to realize is that yes, they have a right to make choices.

However, when you choose not to maximize your options, you forfeit the right to complain about the process because well, a chapter DID want you. You just didn't want them.

You are certainly allowed to dislike chapters and decline invites, but you can't really complain about things not working out because really, they did. Just not in the way you wanted them to.

It's silly to tell people they can't complain. They can and they will. I don't know why people are even belaboring the point when the original chick hasn't even posted a response.
I am proud that my last post on this site was telling Kevin to suck my dick.

Right. She has probably created, and is posting under, a different username already.

I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
