@ForeverRoses Thank you for the information. It looks like the number of pmn's that made it through preference is close to the number of bids that go out. That is great and a step in the right direction for IU.

I will be interested to see the final statistics as well.
That day between preference and bid day is brutal. I can't even imagine how difficult it is for the PNMs.

Although I guess there won't be many of them, when were/are snap bids being offered? I'm assuming bid matching happens right after preference, but are those offered snap bids sworn to secrecy until bid day activities if they're contacted right away?

I will go out on a limb and say that snap bids, if any, were offered this afternoon. Classes were not in session, so I would assume that Panhel was busy making sure all 1000+ bid cards were made out and sorted. I would want to get that out of the way on my day off, not on a day with classes. I honestly don't feel like there are many snap bids. I think that most, if not all, chapters at IU will make quota. All of the chapters have something great to offer women, and with the large number of women, I would think every chapter should make quota easily and could have several quota additions if they wanted them.

The rushees don't find out if they got a bid until bid day - and choose to accept or decline it - so you couldn't really snap until then. Whether they use the flex lists that other chapters have talked about for quota, not sure.

Snap bids go out between bid matching by PH and when the chapters get the bid lists. That's so no one in the chapter besides the people at bid matching know that there were snap bids
