Every group could have a different number to invite to each round.
Ideally is wouldn't happen, but if a PNM gets to Round 3-Skit then has no invites for Pref they ranked incorrectly after round one or round 2 OR the Chapters she had for round 2 had too many invites.

I am not sure about this. I know pnms who had invites for round 3 but were released after that, so no pref invites. Without going into too much detail, this came from both strong and weak recruiting chapters.

I think it can work both ways: WRC's sometimes release women who seem set on SRC's, too. The point is the RFM tries to mitigate these types of situations, not that it's perfect.

Yeah, I was thinking about this reading the posts from the disappointed moms in the UGA thread. It's so much better than it used to be, but some human behavior is hard to make predictions about 100% of the time. RFM does what it can.

Congrats to everyone that the process worked for!

Since the pledge classes were so large and overall recruitment numbers were up, do you think AU will open for expansion soon?

Opinion? Yes. Know anything about anything? No. Is there free lodge space? The girls don't live in the chapter "houses" right? Or just a few? Someone please remind how the sorority housing works there.

Usually selected sophomores and exec live on the hall. In most sororities it goes by GPA. It is my understanding that there is one open space that is currently used by panhellenic.

OK, I thought it was something like that. And I thought I remembered seeing a map of the area that showed at least one available space.
