Super Competitive and/or Very Large Recruitments 2012 Meta-Thread

Now that its summer, there are probably a lot of PNMs scrambling to get Recs written; or at least realizing they have to. And soon it will be a season of many questions regarding recruitment this fall. So I thought it would be a good thing to put together a starting place of sorts of all the super competitive recruitments that are commonly a topic of huge interest on these boards.

If the mods think this is a good idea, maybe we could sticky it until recruitment is over. As much as we would love PNMs to learn how to use the search function once many threads start appearing it could be quite overwhelming to find the most important information.

However if the mods think this is a bad idea, feel free to delete.
As long as this thread stays active I will continue to update it as more interest is shown for various schools. Also feel free to add any other schools I may have missed.

Special thanks to Irishpipes' super recruitment thread

NPC Recruitment & Chapter Listing: Fall 2012-Spring 2013

These extremely helpful threads are stickied to the top of the Sorority Recruitment forum. They should be the starting point for any PNM looking for information on recruitment. Since I am feeling especially helpful this morning I've decided to add them to this:

adpiucf's MUST-READ amazing and comprehensive General Advice
http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...ad.php?t=54403

Schools where you absolutely positively need recs

NB to PNMs: Remember to ALWAYS check with your campus Panhellenic/Greek Life Office for the best recruitment information. While Greekchat can be incredibly helpful, it is NOT a substitute for getting specific information regarding your school's recruitment.

DO Get those Recs written in time; Be gracious and polite; and Plan ahead!

Good Luck Class of 2016!

Obviously, I'm not a moderator, but as a mother with a daughter who will be going through recruitment at one of these schools, I think it's a fabulous idea that would be very helpful to PNMs as they "cut their teeth" on greek chat and become accustomed to searching the threads. Thank you for doing this.

You're very welcome. I thought it could have some use. And I just love collating information; making lists; etc!

Another great thread to mentally prepare a PNM for a super competitive recruitment. Nobody ever wants to think about it happening to them, but it does happen sometimes.

Advice for PNMs: Not getting a bid to your 1st choice.

Even though it's deferred and not until December/January, having Indiana's recruitment on this list might be beneficial. We are our own 'special snowflake' recruitment

Oh I am definitely one of those who think that Indiana's bed rush make it arguably the most competitive rush in the country!

This thread wasn't supposed to be a definitive list of the most competitive recruitments.

Since I've noticed every summer there are always a bunch of repetitive threads started by PNMs especially asking questions about these schools I just wanted to be helpful to create a little starting point for PNMs. Especially if lots of new threads are created drowning out the informative ones.

All the threads I linked to were kindly created by their respective OPs with recruitment info and links to each school's panhellenics.

If you (or any other Hoosiers) starts a thread with IU 2012 recruitment; I'll gladly add it to the list!

Panhellenic Love,

28StGreek

ps thanks for linking that thread Zillini! You're experience/wisdom from advising at Bama is definitely much appreciated on GC!

You should probably add the University of Florida and University of Arizona to your list, and perhaps the University of Oklahoma.

I am sure I most definitely will be adding them as we get closer to fall. Its just as of now actives/alumna from those schools have yet to start an informational thread. And so far it looks like only the Alabama, Ole Miss and Texas threads are getting any attention. No doubt that will change over the next few weeks.

But thank you for your feedback!

If I've missed any competitive school recruitment threads for Fall 2012 let me know so I can add them to this for the benefit of PNMs!

And now they will have absolutely no excuse about getting all their research done before asking repetitive questions!

Hope y'all are having a wonderful day!

Panhellenic love,

28StGreek
