yes this is new. In the past PNMs received bids in their dorms individually from the Rho Gammas and then over the course of a couple of hours they trickled into their sorority houses. This year they will do one big bid day reveal and then go to the sorority houses as a group.

The waiting a day between pref and bid day is the way it has been done since the switch to completely differed recruitment.

My daughter will be a PNM going through IU Recruitment this year. We have everything ready - recs were sent in the fall, outfits are ready, talking points all set. It's been a long wait but she is eager to get back to campus and get on with it!

This year, the quota set is 55/house, so not quite RFM, but not quite bed quota either. Some report as many as 1900 have registered, which is about normal for IU.

We are hopeful she will find her place - she is doing a great job keeping an open mind!

I will try to keep you all updated with what I learn!

Quota at 55 per house is better, but not perfect. That's 1430 bids available with 1900 registered.

Hopefully, after they do this for awhile and see that it is okay, they will move to RFM.

Baby steps....

The 55 number is a minimum, there are chapters who will offer more than 55 bids. I have heard that quite a few chapters will offer 60+. Also, with 1900 registered, not all will begin the process. Some PNMs will not make grades, some will decide not to come back early, etc. I believe that approximately 1650 started the process last year with about the same number registered.

It is not 1900 registered. It's between 1600-1700. Trust me on this

55 is the minimum number of bids. chapters could elect to offer more bids- but they had to submit their quota back in October, before registration was even closed.

And IU DOES use RFM. It's just each chapter has its own quota. Consider it like ole miss or Arkansas where return rates are set with a varied quota.

That's great to know about the 1600-1700 registered. How many (%?) normally drop before the Open House rounds - because of grades, change of heart, etc?

I am hopeful things aren't quite as brutal this year as they were in years past!

Thankfully, the weather seems to be cooperating for January!

I would say the drop outs for grades or just decide not to come back is around 100. More women will drop out through the process. I don't have last year's stats in front of me, but the number of women that stayed in the process and maximized their preference list and were unmatched was actually quite low. The problem is the number that drop out during the process because they don't like the chapters inviting them back or don't maximize their preference choices.

Got it!

That seems reasonable I keep preaching keeping an open mind and that her feelings may change as the process goes on.

We are just thankful it's finally time to get started!
