Preference Ceremony Question

Ok, I am rushing during the informal spring recruitment.

I went to one open house and was asked back for the invitational round. Then, I got an invite to the preference ceremony. There are 13 girls going to the ceremony (there was an email sent, I counted the number of addresses).

The night after the preference ceremony is Bid night.

My question is what is the likelihood of getting a bid (I know you can't answer for sure), but are the odds generally good if you get an invite to preference?

Being invited to pref means they like you. Does it guarantee a bid? No. But I'd say they've likely brought you along this far for a reason. This is really only a guess though.

Go into pref positively. Even knowing WAY more details than you provided, it'd be impossible to say for sure or even with any sort of certainty your chances.

No one here can say whether you will receive a bid because membership selection decisions are up to the chapter and are private. Also, every sorority conducts informal recruitment differently and will take a varying number of women. Being invited to pref is definitely a good thing though. It means you've made a good enough impression for them to seriously consider you for membership. Good luck!

It really depends on the number of spots they have open, since informal is ususally based on the number of open spots, and not a set quota. (At least on my campus it was.)
