I feel like I say this every year, but my biggest piece of advice to PNMs at these larger schools (and their parents) is that whether you get 12 invites, or 7, or 2, you can only get ONE bid. So try not to panic over the number of invites you have after first round. That first day of cuts is hard, but try to remember that every day.

So many parents and PNMs come in here saying "omg what is my Suzie going to do!!!! She only got 4 invites and all the others in her group got full schedules!!!!" Just relax and see what happens before jumping to the immediate conclusion that lack of a full schedule = she probably won't get a bid.

Zillini, I know from experience that it is an adjustment. Thank you for your time - without good advisors, no chapter can truly succeed. I agree - we are proud to call you our PH sister!

I'm going to miss Zillini's post. She was always accurate and informative in her posts, and gave great advice to PNMs and their Moms. I hope my daughter's chapter has such an advisor.

I heard yesterday that 1724 girls are signed up for recruitment and there were still 5 days to go (4 days now). They have already broken the record set last year and look like they are headed for the largest rush in the country again. I don't know whether to send congratulations or condolences!!

Fifteen NPC chapters will participate in formal recruitment. Delta Gamma (new colony) will participate in the first round and then rush following that week. SDT does not participate in formal recruitment. In total, there are 17 NPC groups on campus.

^as jerry seinfeld says, "I choose not to"(in his case, run). i think that it has been said before on gc that they feel more comfortable with informal recruitment.

Ok. I just thought it was a mandatory thing for NPC's to have to participate in formal recruitment when there was more than 2 NPC houses on that campus. Learn something new everyday.

No, it is a mandatory thing to have a chapter of Panhel. (i.e. you can't just have a "Greek council" or the like - you need to have an NPC chapter that follows Panhel rules and regulations.)

Okay. That makes sense.

Hi ladies! Let me start off by saying how incredibly wonderful this site is! WOW I could have really used two years ago when DD1 was rushing. I want to wish good luck to all of the PNMs and their mothers for this years' recruitment. DD (who is a rising junior) is on the sister side and very excited. 2 days! Roll Tide

Oh, forgot to mention, I found the rendering for the new AGD house on their website today. Has anyone seen it? It is going to be beautiful when it is done!

Sorry for the double-posting, just thought I would share!
