Re: about the Pi Chis...

Your Pi Chis sound like a lot of fun. All ours did were escort our group from house to house (and there weren't that many...only 4) I couldn't imagine going though such a huge recruitment. I'm definately enjoying hearing about your experience. I hope you have a great 2nd day!

Exclamation mid-day update

Well, I'm just going to do a quick re-cap before I go take a nap! hehe...I don't have to meet back until 4p...and it's pouring rain outside. I'm hoping that it stops raining by then. Today was a long morning because we went to all the houses, and didn't have any breaks.

We visited:
AEPhi
ADPi
PhiMu
ZTA
Tri-Delta

after lunch we're meeting in front of Kappa Delta. I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the girls, and the very impersonal 'small talk' bits....but I hope it'll get better in the next round.

This afternoon's schedule is: (don't remember the order....)

KD
Sigma Kappa
DPhiE
and Kappa Alpha Theta

I will update once I get back. This round ends at 7:20pm...and hopefully it won't rain on us!!!

Thanks for all the support!

Curlygirly,
First, thanks for your info on your PiChis, it's really helpful to other schools to hear how UF Pi Chis help out their pnms. They sound super prepared and adorable.
Don't worry about the short amount of time at each house, it will get better with the next rounds. I find that your gut instinct is always right anyway, sometimes all you need is 20 minutes to get a picture for yourself.
Keep your head up and keep posting, we love all the information!!!!
Good luck!
Fraternally,
violets

Hey Curlygirly...take care of yourself and keep smiling! I'm sure it can all seem overwhelming, but the place that's right will be evident.

Good luck today, Curlygirly!!

My friend is going through rush at UF and had a great time during round 1. She told me that she finds out what houses asked her back today at 10, and I am anxiously waiting for her phone call. I wrote her a letter or rec for Chi O. She's also a legacy to one of the houses at UF. We'll see!!

Exclamation I'm headed to Round 2...

Ladies...I'm sorry that I didn't get this out sooner. We were in the room for two hours. They wouldn't let us go until all the scantrons had been processed. Here is my update:

I was invited back to 10 houses...

AlphaChiOmega
AEPhi
DPhiE
KappaAlphaTheta
KD
KappaKappaGamma
PhiMu
PiPhi
SigmaKappa
ZTA

I was dropped from:
ChiO
DG
ADPi
AOPi
Tri-Delt

I have to say that I wasn't too disappointed by the houses that dropped me. I felt like I did not connect with the girls in those houses. Maybe it was just the girls that rushed me...but at the same time, I felt like I wouldn't fit in to some of those houses.

Out of the 5...I was disappointed by AOPi b/c I felt like I had connected with the girl there...but I guess she didn't feel the same.

I am extremely excited about being asked back to KD...I had the best conversation there with one of the girls. We really connected, and I thought of GC after visiting that house. They rang the bell after the 20 minutes were up, and I didn't even notice that 20 minutes had passed! The girl started laughing, saying that she didn't even have a chance to show me the displays they had up b/c we were so into our conversation.

I had good conversations with some of the girls in other houses, but the house as a whole didn't really feel like home. Get it? I'm trying to give you details without offending anyone...but at the same time I don't want to be too vague. So please let me know!!

Out of the 10 houses I was invited back to, there were a few houses in particular that I didn't really like. It might have been b/c of the girl that rushed me, so I guess I'll see during Round 2. Who knows!

So far, everything has been going well. I know some girls that have been disappointed by the houses they were invited back to. My roommate for one, only got 2 invites (SK & Phi Mu)...and she was very upset. She wanted to know how 13 houses could use 20 minutes to determine that she wasn't fit for them. But so far she's been open-minded about it, and is returning to Round 2.

Hope this update has satisfied your cravings! I know that I've been kinda 'bland' about things before. I'm going to take justamoms advice when I'm posting about chapters.

I'll be posting after Round 2 today!

I think you and all the other PNMs are doing a wonderful job of being very diplomatic about your analysis of rush, and I thikn it's greatly appreciated by all!

I can't wait to hear how round 2 goes!
