Thanks, hannah2, I have been enjoying your input. I was wondering what the average chapter size is now at Ole Miss after the 2016 recruitment and which chapters are participating in COB?

With the increasing numbers of students interested in Greek life, has there been any discussion of adding further NPC groups to those already on campus? Yes, I realize Ole Miss has a fairly recently re-opened Chapter a new colony from last year. They both seem to be doing well, as best I can tell. TIA.

Not to sound like a noob or a dolt, but with this variable quota they can still end up being over total, right? Is it based more on return rates than actual numbers in the chapter? That is, the biggest sorority going into rush may not be in the "smallest quota" group?

Apologies if this is too nosey.

Yes a chapter can still end up over total. And the invite back numbers are based on the return rates while considering each chapter's individual quota. So a chapter getting a 90% return rate but with a quota of 105 would invite back less women than a chapter with a 90% return rate and quota of 125.

To be honest, the variable quota sounds A LOT like the way Indiana University does their recruitment.

Variable quota is being used to help bring about parity in chapter sizes. So the largest groups will have the smallest quota. Total doesn't come into play. This is all about primary recruitment quota.
