Talking

Will the potential girls know by the end of the information session if they have an invitation or not?

~sorry for all the confused questions. I'm a little nervous and want to know as much as possible so I'm prepared. I would love to be in a sorority.

Don't worry. It sounds like they are trying something new this year, and a lot of people are confused on both sides.

Just so you know, even if there are 7-9 chapters extending bids, some of those may be extending very few, and only to women they already know. So if you only get one or two invitations, don't be disheartened.

This is excellent advice!
Also, I believe that chapters are allowed to extend bids starting Tuesday, most likely midday. I don't know when the cut off is, but with chapters taking small New Member classes, the bidding period will be short due to numbers. I know most plan to be done bidding by Thursday or Friday.

Try to go to any open events chapters are hosting after the Monday night Informational Session - especially if you were invited! Those are great opportunities, too!!

**UPDATE: Campus total was bumped to 163 to give more women chances to join this Spring!!**

Just to let everyone know I asked the MVP which sororities were actually accepting members this spring and there are only 5 houses doing it- so be aware!

EDIT- Sorry UFGatorLove :/

I was hoping to keep letters off, since Panhellenic Council was trying to make Spring different this year and not expose the PNMs to the facts as to which houses were and were not bidding.

If you're putting up letters, I must add that I was made aware of at least one other chapter was planning on extending bids to PNMs and it was a house new to Spring Recruitment this year. I have heard whispers of on more, who was not new to Spring Recruitment.

I won't post their letters for the fact that I started this post without them and I would like to end it without them.

I hate to break it to you, but they'd find out eventually. Unless the other sororities lied and said they took a very small spring pledge class.

Well, I'm mostly sad because it almost made it - Recruitment is tomorrow. Sadly, it did not.
Worse of all, I am still quite sure that was not the complete list. I may be wrong but I was told there was one to two more (as I said before).
Who knows. It was going so well on here until now.
Grrr...

Well I fixed the problem UFGatorLove ha so maybe some people saw some didn't! I mean I actually emailed the mvp so she may or may not have been including all of the houses, I am assuming she would but who knows. I wasn't trying to ruin this post, was just trying to put information out there that I received!

It seems like no one is quite sure, so I guess we'll find out tomorrow.

"typical houses?"

SMH.

Sorry, it's been a difficult two days around here and my nice tank is drained.

Yeah I will definitely check back and report on my experience.

Thank you!! I wasn't trying to be mean or anything! I just know that my friends in houses doing Spring want it to not be broadly published. And, I swear there was one more, but I could be wrong, too. So we will have to see!
