They did. I believe IUHoosiergirl made a typo. It should read Alpha Sigma Tau instead. :-)

Hello ladies... with rush starting just next week and the PNM at home shopping for the "perfect" outfit.. maybe you experienced women can give them some tips for dressing, talking, or just staying upbeat during these crueling days. Like should they take notes on thier phones between houses? are they even allowed to carry thier phones? Do they stress over jewelry and makeup? any tips on standing out when everyone is dressed the same?

Also.. I have seen on other posts...stragegies for dealing with girls doing thier rankings... like how to be honest with your chances of getting in the "top- or most desired" sororities... that many girls at IU drop off ones in first rankings that they wish they had back when it comes down to the end... after the "popular-top" one drop them. I haven't really been thru it so if one of you can explain it better...please do.

Also how do you all think the cancelling of pre-recruitment activites will affect the process this year... my daughter is a senior now and I can attest that her sorority really did curtail those "exclusive- you have to know someone to get invited events" that were quite prevelant when she rushed years ago. i think it should help "level" the field.

I don't think there is any way to REALLY be prepared for rush at IU. Just charge on, keep hydrated and get as much sleep as you can.

Though I believe you meant to type "grueling", the term "crueling" somehow seems to be somewhat apropos.

Do PNMs know how many 'beds' are open at each house? Does that factor into strategy? Are the sororities roughly equal in member total? In 2012 average chapter size was 156.

Honestly? If your daughter is rushing as a second-semester senior, she really doesn't need to worry about this. The odds of her having a full schedule in the first invitational round are very slim.

"her sorority" I think Lalucas daughter is in a sorority, not rushing.

No, PNMs are not told how many openings each chapter has available. But a savvy PNM could make an educated guess by looking at last year's stats from recruitment. Most chapters will take a similar number of girls this year as they did last year. For example, if XYZ took 50 women, I would expect them to take between 45-55 this year. Also, DPhiE will be colonizing in late January at the conclusion of recruitment. Historically speaking, they could take any where from 80-120 women initially.

And the savvy rushee would use that information when making lists. There is a HUGE range in number of girls each chapter will take. Keeping a couple of the high number chapters in your upper group could really help out later. And no, nobody here is going to do that work for you. But DEFINITELY remember, your ranking only comes in to play to the extent that the chapters invite you back. Many and maybe most girls don't have full schedules after round 1. And that's ok. If nothing else a light round 2 schedule will give you precious time to rest so you can be your fully enthusiastic self at the houses who did invite you.
