Question Most Competitive Greek Systems?

Out of curiosity, which schools do you think have the most competitive recruitment?

I have a friend who is now a Kappa Kappa Gamma at Pitt who thought Indiana University's recruitment was very stressful. I know that Georgia, Mizzou, Ole Miss and other Southern schools often take their recruitment very, very seriously.

Alabama hands down is the toughest (I think) in the country. Even as an Ole Miss alum I know our recruitment is tough but it's gotten better over the past 10 years. I also think Texas is pretty tough.

I'm an Alabama grad, and I'd have to say that Indiana's is probably the worst. Basing your quota on bed space...now THAT'S competitive!

Second would be Ole Miss. Only 9 sororities and almost 1,000 competing for slots...and through GC I'm hearing some rough stuff about Texas.

Alabama's is only competitive if you're going to turn up your nose at certain groups.

The University of Southern California could be added to this list.

There's Texas, LSU, 'Bama, Ole Miss, Illinois, Indiana, Mizzou, USC, and perhaps a handful of other schools.

So true, unfortunately. We have 16 incredible houses, but so many girls going through rush automatically decide they could never be a part of about 8 of them, and get their hearts broken when those are the ones that ask them back.

I think we can safely add U of Arkansas to the list.

I love how some of the most selective SEC schools wear their exclusivity as a perverse badge of honor and even complain that they're not competitive enough already: "We had 1,600 girls go through, and somehow 700 still slid through the cracks!"

No complaints here. Out of all the women who participated in Bama's Recruitment this year 83% received bids and of those 87% got their first choice.

Nearly 12% of all PNMs voluntarily withdrew presumably because they weren't happy with their remaining choices. But that was their choice and not a matter of sliding through the cracks.

It wouldn't be a stretch.

This is Panhellenic party line nonsense. 87% of those receiving bids did NOT get their first choice, they got their first choice of the houses they had left. There is a HUGE difference.
