That's awesome! Just goes to show that the greek life system at sec schools are for people outside the southeast as well.

I wonder about the state distribution of women who withdrew from recruitment. The women receiving bids isn't exactly a cross-section of the student body, but it's close. I didn't realize Auburn had so many out of staters. I wonder if more women from Alabama withdrew that out of staters. If so, I'd think it's because out of state women are looking for a home away from home because they are less likely to come to Auburn with a bunch of friends, and they are less susceptible to hometown pressure to join one of a few "right" chapters. Even if a southern out of stater gets released from the "top" chapters, she's more likely to realize the value of joining an NPC sorority on a national level because they may have more knowledge about Greek Life. (i.e. XYZ might not be tops at Auburn, but it's big in my hometown and/or strong nationally).

violetpretty Thanks for the breakdown, it is very informative. I have twins applying to Auburn.(boy/girl) We are also OOS. I think the OOS numbers will start to decline as Auburn has lowered the amount of scholarships it will be giving OOS students starting in Fall '12.

I agree that most of those girls who drop out of recruitment are probably from Alabama or another nearby state. They come in with a stronger idea of who "the best sorority" is and drop out when they don't get a bid from one of three or four chapters. I know a mom whose daughter was lucky enough to get a bid, but mom was upset because that group just wasn't big here in our Alabama town.

The few times I've heard a boy/girl twins going greek, I've always thought that it would be cool if they went AEPi and AEPhi! OR, i guess, ADPi and ADPhi.

I'm shut up now.

Had to pop back in to offer an explanation along with a shared giggle, because when I first heard it I thought "what? WHAT? what does that have to do with beating another team?" It's a bittersweet story; there's a statue (a bust, actually) of John "Button" Salmon outside the football stadium. And there is a wildcat family statue that my dogs try to attack every time we're on the Mall.

I think AEPi/AEPhi siblings are really common, just because they are both Jewish houses. I think I also knew more couples from those houses than any other pairing when I was in college.
