Wow, SUCH an improvement!
I saw a few pictures of Delta Zeta's interior renovation on a friend's Facebook page. Not much change on the outside, but the girls' rooms inside are vastly different.

Alabama Recruitment News (I hope this hasn't already been posted.

Guesstimated numbers; additional parties scheduled:

http://www.tuscaloosanews.com/articl...pation-in-rush

“Kat Gillan, the director of Greek affairs at the University of Alabama, said she predicts that the total number this year will be 1,900. “

“Gillan said the quota for this year will probably be around 100. . . “

Are second-floor balcony doors firecode adds?

And do two kitties (one white, one brown) in cat-nap lounge painting have names?

Bama will most likely break 2000 this year.

In one of the articles posted upthread, the Panhellenic office for Alabama reports that 85% of women going through Rush get a bid. Of course, that means 15% or close to 250-300 PNM's will not get bids. Again, this number is much higher than what I saw at UK. Any thoughts on why such a high number of PNM's end up bid less on bid day? Do the majority of the 15% simply "fail to maximize their options" and drop out in the middle of the week? Suicide Bidding? Or "cross-cutting'?

It was actually 79% during formal recruitment last year. They changed it to 85% after DG's colonized. Just my opinion but I think that many OOS girls have no idea what going through recruitment at a competitive recruitment school is like. They come in under prepared (they don't have multiple recs..or even just 1 for every house) and end up overwhelmed (where then they don't maximize their options,suicide or drop). That doesn't account for all that end up bid less but I believe it encompasses a good size group.

I'm guessing a huge number withdraw, as well, so the 85% placement does not mean 15% get cut everywhere.

From what I know there, more withdraw than are released. But it probably isn't overwhelmingly so. But I don't think 85% placement is all that bad. Consider that a percentage sign up even when they don't have the grades nor the recs. And the upperclassmen who don't get placed as well. I've already seen rec requests for several Juniors. They are going to have a tough time.

To this day I am floored by numbers like this.

I attended a school where the entire undergrad population was around 5000, meaning about 1200 per class. My freshman class was at approximately a 2:1 male:female ratio, meaning about 400 incoming women. There were only about 150 PNMs in any given year, and that includes the handful of sophomores and up who were either transfers or re-rushing. Total was 80. Quota throughout my collegiate years was 30ish, so after recruitment, most chapters had around 100 members. And one of the reasons my local sorority's founding sisters chose to found their own much smaller sorority is that they felt it was impossible to feel a sisterly bond with 30+ pledge sisters and 100+ chapter sisters.

I attended a prominent engineering school in the Northeast, i.e., I was in a different world.
