oookkk so today was a whole lot of emotions!!! when I got my list this morning I was sort of disappointed. My list was still great, but both Apple and Grape didn't ask me back. But I was still excited, and I went to Plum, Lime and Mango. At the end of the day my decision was a tough one.

Plum was great!! I really liked it here, the girls were really easy to talk to and I was really touched by the ceremony and the attitude of the girls around me. All in all this chapter has everything I am looking for from academics to philanthropy to goofiness and I can really see myself here. I just hope that things work out for me!!! : )

I went to Lime next and this is where things got hard. I liked it just about as much as Plum and when it came down to make my decision I kept going back and forth. Looking back at my lists didn't help because the two had traded places throughout the weekend, so it was a really close call. Here the conversation was easy and the girls were really laid back. The atmosphere here is comfortable and I really enjoyed my time here. I could see myself here too!! aaaahhh!!

Mango... this house just isn't right for me. I know they have a lot of fun together but it was really hard to see beyond the surface. Here conversation was difficult again and it was sort of disorganized. I just felt no connection here and could feel that it wasn't the one for me.

When I had to rank I went back and forth between Plum and Lime for awhile and finally ranked Plum first and Lime second. I didn't rank Mango because I know that it just isn't what I am looking for and I didn't want to say I will accept a bid from them knowing that I won't and take the place of someone who might really feel right about it. I am excited but at the same time so nervous!!! I would love to be apart of the amazing sisterhood that I saw at both Plum and Lime and just hope that in the end, like everyone's been saying, that things work out for the best.

Tomorrow is going to be an incredibly long day. I won't find out what happens until 6:30 or so. I am so anxious and know that I won't be paying attention at all!!! Recruitment was so much fun and I hate that so many people told me it would be awful and that sophomores were given no chance. Even if I don't get a bid, I'm glad that I went through the process and that I got a chance to see what greek life really is about. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!! I'm going to try and sleep : ) but it's going to be hard!! : ) Thank you so much to everyone here, I hope you all have a wonderful night!! : )

Oh also! about the "off the record", she said she knew that it was hard to make a choice and that she could try and help make it easier for me, and she just started to sell the house really hard in a very unappealing way, it was just very forceful and made me so uncomfortable. I'm glad I didn't go back there today!!

OHHH!! and my Rho Gamma was a Watermelon!! I was so excited, but she tricked us all, well at least me!!!

Goodnight and phew, one more day until I know!! : )

i've heard from my sisters at IU that everyone who got bids are at their houses, so i'm assuming its good news.

Hey, congrats. I enjoyed reading your story. You did a really good job of staying positive and keeping an open mind, and it paid off - it's apparent you're thrilled, and I'm glad you've found your home.

Would you be willing to reveal who the other houses are, either here or via PM?

Congrats, this thread is a perfect example of how girls can benefit from keping an open mind throughout recruitment.
