Is GDI better than not getting your top choice?

I am curious about something. Almost every GCer gives PNMs the good advice to "have an open mind" etc. Many threads about very competitive greek schools, however, document that sometimes girls will drop out of recruitment after being dropped by one or two houses that they wanted, even if they had several good options left. (This is not a question about having only your last choice remaining.)

My question is this: It seems odd that girls for whom greek membership is so important, at schools where greek membership is so important, would rather belong to no group than to the right group. Are some of you familiar with these situations, and do these girls regret their decisions later in their college careers? Since most highly-sought-after houses probably don't do COB or bid many sophmores, I assume that many of the girls that drop never pledge a house. Thanks.
