Of those women in the Open House Pool, 563 were from Alabama and 1,518 were from Out-of-State. Of the 2,081 women in the Open House Pool, 11% (195 women) did not complete the process, of which 83 withdrew, 109 were released and 3 participated in bid matching but did NOT maximize their options. Of the 1,894 women receiving bids, 531 were from Alabama and 1,364 were from Out-of-State, for an overall Open House Pool Match Rate of 91%. The National average for women receiving a bid during formal recruitment is 79% of the Open House Pool.

Just heard they are expecting between 2,100 and 2,200 this year...about 100 or so over last year, so that sounds much more reasonable that some of the wild figures I have been nearing.

They have 4 days between when rush ends and classes start? What happens in that time lapse?

I would assume pledge class retreats, pledging ceremonies, etc and the normal beginning of school activities!

Kentucky (UK) is similar in that bid day is on a Friday with the first day of classes being the following Wednesday. Starting on that Friday is "K Week" which is an introduction to life at UK for all new students.

Everybody's right - new member retreats, sisterhood retreats, might even go home for the weekend if home is not too far away. Oh, and fraternity parties!

Not that I think it's a bad idea, it just seems odd that they would pay to live in the dorms, leave home so much earlier, etc. for 4 uninterrupted days of partying. Is it always like this? I've never noticed it before.

If they move in early for recruitment, there is no extra charge for the dorm. Heck, there are girls who sign up for recruitment just to move away from home early.
Recruitment is not the only thing going on. There are 3 or 4 programs for students where they go out and work on a Habitat House for a week, or do leadership skill exercises, or go whitewater rafting.
And remember that the rest of campus is moving in that weekend.

That's so much better than what my campus does where pref is the night of the first day of classes and bid day is the 2nd day of classes.

I was under the impression this was fairly common. Well, maybe not all the partying, but Recruitment ending before school began (for schools with Fall Recruitment). I know UW's (Washington) Recruitment ends over a week before school starts, with some of that time taken up by school sponsored activities for Freshman and the rest taken up by sorority activities.

It has always been like this as far as I know. It's really not 4 (?) days of uninterrupted partying, however. The campus (other than those groups who qualify for early move-in) is mostly moving in over the weekend. This gives them 2 days before the start of classes on Wednesday.
