This is the first time I've followed a "live" recruitment story, and it makes me anxious and excited to find out how the story ends! I'm glad you were given second chances where you wanted them. Good luck the rest of the way!

Glad to hear you were invited back to your two favorites so far, and put the tent talk behind to give The Office another look. Sounds like you have some great options so far! Have a great first week of class!

It was a torturous week of waiting, but recruitment finally started up again today! I got my schedule and saw The Office and Parks and Rec. I was really disappointed to have been cut from Master of None, but I think everyone has at least one disappointment in their recruitment experience. I think I would have had a lot of trouble choosing between Master of None and Parks and Rec if it came down to it, so I’m kind of happy that the decision was made for me!

I’m so exhausted that I can’t even think straight right now, but I’ll do the best I can to give a decent summary of my experiences today.

The Office
– Again, these girls were super nice and have a great sisterhood. However, the conversations I had weren’t anything special and I didn’t feel much of a connection. If I did end up here I’m sure I would be perfectly happy, but as of now it’s not my top choice.

Parks and Rec – I absolutely love this house. All of the girls I talked to were really cool and nice and I had such great conversations. Their sisterhood video was awesome and it felt so good to walk into the house and have the girls I’ve talked to over the past couple days look excited to see me. I already feel at home in this house and I could really see myself here.

Pref night is tomorrow! I’ll be back with updates afterwards.

Good luck, girl! Hopefully you get both houses back for Pref so you can have more time to get to know them and really make up your mind. Pref can really be a game changer.

If you do get invited back to one, I'll be rooting for you either way! Keep in mind that some chapters are better at rushing than others, and after you get to know them outside of recruitment, their "real" personalities will really shine.

Fingers crossed for you You have a wonderful attitude.

There was only one house on my schedule for pref night, and that house was none other than Parks and Rec!!! I was held hostage for hours and hours waiting for my party, which was the very last event of the day, but it was definitely worth the wait.

Parks and Rec – I teared up at least 3 times during the pref ceremony. The girl who I talked to was the first girl I met on the first day of recruitment, and I was so happy to see her again. Afterwards, I finally got to talk to one of my good friends who I’ve been dying to talk to for all of recruitment. They both told me great stories about their sisterhood, and the ceremony was so sweet and cute. I love these girls and everything they stand for. I know without a doubt that I’ve found my home. I think I’ve known all along, and I’m so happy that they saw something in me too. I want to be a part of this sisterhood so badly.

I’ll hopefully be back with good news after bid day tomorrow!

Good luck! This has been a great story, and I'm a huge Parks and Rec fan!
