At the Michigan recolonization last week, pref was invitation-only and bids were given out that night as a surprise. Four years ago, when we colonized at the school where I teach, the Greek Life office "strongly requested" that all PNMs be allowed to attend pref, and that cuts not be made until after that "round." Because we were also limited in how many we were allowed to take, there were many women cut. It was definitely difficult...personal calls were made to all of the PNMs who would not receive a bid. I think making pref invitational would have been less cruel.

We picked up envelopes the next day at the Student Union that had either a bid or a regret card. (That was 20 years ago, though.)

Oh sweet baby jebus, post the ending already. You may think you are being coy and adding tension, but you are just being annoying at this point. This is a completed recruitment not a live action thriller. I never guess the school and chapter so for the love of all things fattening, someone PM me so I can ignore this thread.

She went through last year as a sophomore; she herself linked to the thread she wrote about her unsuccessful recruitment. Now she is a junior at the same school (and she used pretty much the same theme this year as last year) and because she dragged this out so long, it's fallen flat and is probably going to be linked in the future as an example of how not to write a recruitment thread. Too bad so sad.

Ugh - I just figured this whole thing out. Why do people start new threads with a new user name but link to their old thread? Scavenger hunt...

I sincerely hope that the OP will wrap this up, rather than let everything hang.

I also hope that everyone realizes that a recruitment story that is posted over a month becomes more of a tease than a story.

This time even I figured it out. OP linked to her thread from last year in which her name was "nittanyville". Read that thread. Then go check irishpipes' thread. One colony at Penn State. Phi Sigma Sigma. She said she got a bid. Whatever.

The fact that she was so set on placing each sorority into tiers as she talked about their importance made me thankful my sorority did not get her. It's almost weird that someone so concerned about rankings/ tiers would go for a new organization on campus. I also love how she felt the need to point out the Jewish sorority on campus as that was a problem for her. I mean, there is only one Jewish sorority on that campus so, way to go. When she sees how much work actually goes into making a chapter successful, I'm wondering if she will stick around. I mean, I get the impression that a letter t-shirt means way more to her than actual sisterhood.
