Talking The "twins" have chosen!

I am so, so thrilled that our 2 high school seniors have finally chosen a college--the same one! One will be pre-med and the other, art. We'll go next week for cheerleading tryouts and again after that for the honors orientation.

This school has ADPi, Alpha Gam, Chi O, KD, Phi Mu, and Zeta. We are so fired up! (And relieved to be through with the strain of searching, visiting, applying for scholarships, you name it.)

What school did they decide on? They have a great list of sororities to choose from. Be sure to post their rush stories!

Carnation,

Sounds like you are talking about Valdosta State. I have read previous posts from you and you mentioned VSU. Is this the school? Either way, congrats!!

Erin

Carnation,

CONGRATULATIONS on your girls choosing a school!!!!!!!!!! My only regret is that there's no DZ chapter there.

They picked a good school! VSU is a pretty campus, not very crowded, and has small classes. If it wasn't so good I would have not gotten 2 undergrad degrees and start to work on my masters here.

Congrats on the selection. I remember my senior year of high school when I made the decision of where I wanted to go, my parents were relieved. The best of luck to your gals.

Dear Sue,

Yiii! I guess I'd better correct that--I forget that not everyone knows the story! We adopted one, a 2-month-old, from Japan and I gave birth to her sister a month later. Just because they were in a twin stroller, people would come up and actually say, "Twins! They must be fraternal!" It was really hard to restrain our sarcasm. The admissions officer at one school they were looking at is somehow convinced they're twins and she has SEEN them!

They're so different--we have the brainy cheerleader and the dancer/artist--but they're so close. I often wonder if they'll pledge the same group...

Carnation, where is Valdosta State? I've heard of it, but I don't know where it is. But, darn it, I was hoping you'd be able to attend an initiation ceremony this year! Of course, this does solve the problem of who gets to be initiated with Mom's badge. You couldn't very well pin it on one, then rip it off her blouse and put it on her sister! Did I ever tell you the very first story I wrote as a professional journalist was on international adoption? How funny people thought they were twins as babies. But how wonderful to grow up with a sibling with only a three-month age difference.

Talking

Silverblue, Valdosta is right above the Florida line on I-75. It's a gorgeous campus with palm trees and Spanish architecture.

Up until the last minute, I thought I might get to go to an initiation too. I swear I will pin a daughter someday! Number 4 daughter will rush in 2 years and wants to go to UGa and I will do everything possible to get that kid there and into Georgia Alpha!

We have 3 sets of what they call "virtual twins" in the adoption world. However, with the other 2 sets, the younger in each set is Asian and much smaller. These 2 have always been the same size and relatives just felt compelled to give them twin outfits for some reason! We even had to send them to nursery school on separate days because they depended so much on each other!

Thumbs up Yay Twins!

Carnation, congratulations to your twins! Can't wait to hear their rush stories. I think Justamom spoiled us with her excellent play-by-play of her li'l DG's rush experience so we expect the same from you, darnit! lol
