Should I rush again

During my first quarter of college I went out to as many rush events as I could for different fraternities because I was sure that im not going to pledge anywhere and I want to get adjusted to college.In one of the fraternities I spent about 40 min and talked to like two or three brothers there and I think this is the reason that I didn't get bid.now I think that this fraternity is the right fraternity for me. Is there any chance for me to get a bid this time or am I screwd?

You went to as many rush events for different fraternities because you didn't think you were going to pledge anywhere?

Is the fraternity that you now think is the right one for you the same one that offered you a bid in the Fall and, after you withdrew, didn't offer you one last week? Or is it a different fraternity?

Which one?

I am completely confused by your posts (in this thread and the other one you started). Maybe that's the problem? Honestly, we cannot tell you what your chances are of getting a bid.

AZTheta is right; we have no way of telling you what your chances are or if you'll get a bid or not. But if you're wanting advice on how to approach things to give yourself the best chance you can, then help us out:

Why—after accepting a bid from another fraternity and then, after withdrawing from that fraternity's pledge process, rushing that same fraternity again within the past few weeks—do you now think this other fraternity is "the right fraternity" for you?

Why didn't you talk to more than a few brothers at the rush event in the Fall?

How much time did you spend with this fraternity compared to other fraternities during rush?

Do you know other brothers in this fraternity? Have you had any interaction with any of them since rush in the Fall?

Is rush still going on? If not, what do you mean when you ask about your chances "this time"?
