Junior Transfer Fraternity Rushing at UF

I will be transferring to UF this fall as a junior and am wondering what my chances are at rushing and pledging. I know they say it's hard if not impossible with sororities, but I am wondering about fraternities. Is it worth rushing?

If you rush, you might get a bid.

If you don't rush, you will not get a bid.

Are you interested in the possibility of the experience? If so, you should rush.

Keep an open mind (don't just look at the biggest chapters). Also, look at the other guys rushing, and ask yourself, as a junior, can you see yourself hanging out with these guys? My guess is at some of the more mellow houses you will find a good fit.

Generally speaking, fraternities do not need to worry about pledge quotas (i.e. maximum number of pledges) or chapter totals (i.e. a maximum number of members). So it is not unusual for juniors to receive bids. However, they (the juniors) do need to fit with the chapter. And being a junior may be more of an issue with some chapters then with other chapters.

Best of luck.
