Zillini, I'm going to miss your posts too, but after 15 of Advising, you deserve your own Golden Lion! Hope you're still going to be around!


Part of me is absolutely stunned by how many women have signed up for Recruitment! I'm trying to get my head around how each sorority is going to get to know that many women on anything but the most superficial way! I hate to say it, but I'll bet there's some serious cuts after the first round. Hope I'm wrong!

I think just to keep their head above water they're going to have to make massive cuts. It's unfair to the rushees, but what can they do? You can't have 1000 girls going on house tours! I think there are going to be A LOT of girls happy to know they still have a chance when rush is over. Both SDT and Delta Gamma could have more girls coming out of the woodwork than expected.

now a days, the way sororities invite pnms back often is based on several years statistics of their return rates(the percentage of pnms accepting invitations back to a sorority). for instance, sorority A usually has a very high rate of return(98%), so they are not allowed to ask back as many pnms as sorority B, who has an 50% return rate. so the sororities won't make massive cuts just to keep their heads above water, but according to rfm. and while sorority A won't be asking back every pnm they met, sorority B conceivably could.

Sure, 1700 can go on house tours!
Open house rounds - there are 23 parties - remember, there are 16 sororities participating in the open house rounds (all less SDT but plus DG).
Philanthropy rounds - SDT and DG do not participate (DG just this year), so 15 sororities hosting 16 parties.
Skit rounds - 9 parties
Pref rounds - 4 parties.

I know some of the sororities (heck, probably all of them) have separate groups doing each day of open house rounds, so few members have to do all 23 parties. I'm assuming certain officers have to be there for all of them, of course.

OK, so they have a lot more 1st round parties than chapters. That will help. I would think with these numbers they will want to add a party or 2 for Philanthropy round too.

But you mention something that is completely foreign to me - not every member having to participate in every minute of rush. That actually does make a huge difference. I never had that luxury!

Philanthropy rounds do have an extra party - 1 extra party. Don't ask me how they came up with that.
Honestly, I can't even imagine not having to do every party (well....maybe I can). But the houses simply won't hold all the current members and PNMs at one party.

Oh I'm still around, just doing a lot more lurking than posting these days.

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone. I appreciate it!

Just wanted to wish all the PNM's & moms a great week!

I don't know why but I am anxious about this recruitment even though my D is a Junior Sorority member at UA. I just know how hard all the houses work!

We also have a hometown friend going through rush!

Check out the cute video at UA Panhell Facebook page! Roll Tide!

Good luck to all the PNM's and sorority members. I have several girls from Charlotte, NC that I am keeping tabs on and especially one. Today was cooler than normal in T'Town but they still had 5 girls faint - not bad for the number going through. Hope the weather holds but we will see what tomorrow brings. Roll Tide!!

Actually, I think there are 5 extra. If I'm correct, I think they can go to a max of 11 parties and there are 16 party times.

To say I would be babbling out of my ass after 16 parties basically doing the same thing is an understatement.
