Carnation:
You've done a wonderful preparing your daughters for this experience, you should give yourself a lot of credit. I think its great that they are "aghast" that they need to rank the sororities...it says a lot about what open minds and hearts they have! That sort of open and generous attitude will serve them well whatever they do. It also says how much they want a sisterhood and a Greek experience and are not just looking for letters.
I think it also says a lot about how good the chapters at Valdosta are, congats to all you Valdosta Greeks!

Thanks again for these posts, they're wonderful!
Fraternally,
violets

BlazerCheer has dropped out of rush. I'll let you know about Ballerina when we can catch her in her room.

I am sorry to hear about Blazercheer dropping out of Rush. But she will be pretty busy cheering for Valdosta State. Good luck to Ballerina!!

Carnation, I give you a whole lot of applause for handling this as well as you seem to. My gawd, they're not even my children and as the kids I work with say when they are getting over anxious, "I'm spazzing out" over here in NY. And as Marissa said, if one or both decide to go Alpha Gam, they might be getting spoiled by some GC ones from all over the country, lol.
It's great to hear that Ballerina and Blazercheet are having so much fun with rush. I iwsh them the best of luck and hope they will be happy in the house they may get selected to. It's obvious that they have a great Rush/Recruitment Coach (Hmm another term for Rho Chi)in you.
If all your kids go greek, how on earth are you and your husband going to remember what org. each is in??? And hey you'll have your own lil badge collection .
About the computerized system/scantrons. Michigan uses this system, although I am not sure what version they use. At UM after the first day of Recruitment at UM, the girls go back and rank all the houses in preference on the scantron. At the same time the sororities are ranking the rushees, and then everything goes into the computer and it goes from there. I believe this is done for Sets I-III, Pref. and the final list for Bid Day.
Does it have its glitches? Like many have posted before, just asked a girl who wanted XYZ and XYZ wanted her too, but the computer did match them . Like anything it has its ups and downs.

Carnation, I am sorry to hear about Blazercheer. Perhaps she is just a lil overwhelmed with everything that is going on at the moment (moving in, being a frosh, rush and cheerleading) and will decide to continue recruitment if she is allowed. If not maybe she will try to adjust to school and go through again if they have Spring Recruitment or next year.

Why did Blazercheer drop out? Did she get cut heavily, or did she just decide that Greek life is not for her? Either way, the sororities are missing out.

Wow. I never considered that one of them would drop out of rush...we don't know the circumstances yet though, so I just hope that she is okay and she had time to think about it before she made the decision. Being a Rho Chi taught me that sometimes people just don't feel right with it or have other reasons for dropping. Sometimes they take snap bids or do informal later and sometimes they just decide it is not for them.

Best of luck to ballerina. I hope that you all are okay with the decision.

OH NO! I hope that nothing bad happened to make Blazercheer drop out of rush. Best of luck to Ballerina. I hope that they are both happy at their new school and find the right niche for themselves.
