Advice/Words of Wisdom?

I'm going through rush at a small school with only a handful of sororities. I'm not, you know, the most outgoing girl in the world and I don't just talk to people I don't know. That being said, I got cut from all but one house after the first round and I'm really worried I'll get cut from this last house. It's been my top choice since before rush and so many people have said that they would peg me as a member of that house, even before I really knew much about them. I'm worried I only got through the first round because I knew the girl I was with already. I know knowing her (and a good number of other girls in the house) has to have helped, but I know not to expect anything because I know a number of girls. And I'm trying not to get my hopes up (even though multiple people have told me that nobody on my campus in a while has gone through and stayed in and not ended up getting a bid). Do you guys have any advice or words of wisdom or am I just worrying wayyy too much about this?
Thanks so much!

I'm rushing right now. I am not a very outgoing person. I've managed to do pretty well. Just relax, but be confident. Listen to what the rusher is asking/talking about, then form a question from it.


If you're interested in leadership, mention it! The girls love PNMs who are looking to move up/help out the sorority.

Relax. If you are nervous about potentially being cut, it will show in your conversations.
