OK, 133 people have looked at this thread and NOBODY is talking! Soooooo,
I'll write my OWN story of LSU rush.

This year there was a record breaking number of 3,961 girls that went out for rush.
There are 10 NPC chapters and 3 secret organizations vying for the top 2,961 PNMs

It wasn't till the girls returned to Miller Dorm (the place to be for sorority) that the actives realized they had a problem on their hands. Quota would be 16 this year. However, in their wisdom, Panhellenic decided to lower total from 200 to 199!

All the members of the notorious BCP sorority decided they would cut every single legacy of NIX. Now, that put them down to 10 PNMs , so they scoured the recs one more time to find those 6 special girls who never, EVER were accused of possessing (gulp)
blond highlights! It wasn't so easy for the others.

The CIAs had been doing some investigating of their own. They decided it was MOST important to look for PNMs with some athletic prowess. With security in question on campus, they figured they could post their pledges at the doors as a bonding experience. They cut every size 8 and under.

I HEARD that the FBI followed suit, but not to be out done, upped the anti to a size 10. I THINK they cut close to 900 girls, I'm not too sure.

The worst though (and MOST superficial IMO) cuts came from the TAU TAU's. If you even THOUGHT of wearing a Tiffany heart, you were out on the curb! Everyone knows this season's top fashion accessory is the key chain mace (burgundy or black, but black looks sleeker).
The cuts were soooooooooooo drastic, someone said they are considering expansion.
This year all the skits were GREAT! Most memorable was "Louisiana Hayride with
Britney Spears". Several of the PNMs must have got wind of it because they came in costume!

Tonight is Pref. I heard everyone may get cross cut! Does anyone know anything else? Please SHARE! Now the truth----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I STILL don't know Nuttin!

Hey you guys, go wild and fill in what YOU"VE "heard"!

The last I spoke to her was Monday or Tues- she called in to ask for something she forgot, but I didn't ask any questions. You know how busy things are AND this is TOP Secret!

The funny thing is, there's one (or two) little "truths" in my joke post! The source of which--------I'll never tell!

I bet I won't hear ANYTHING till this is over and it will most likely come from someone else. I can't call a PNMs Mom because if it's as difficult this year as last, I don't WANT to hear about it.
Lots of those young ladies I've known so long........

JAM: It seems like there are a lot of women from your town who go through recruitment every year. Were any looking into your daughter's sorority?

JAM, this may be the best post I have EVER read online. Anywhere. Period. Better than Usenet, better than stuff over at the Smoking Gun, better than the wonderful world of snark at TWoP. Have you thought about a career in comedy? I bet you could go on a national campus tour and become famous!

As for what I've "heard" well, I don't know if I should share. Okay, I will. Apparently there were two surprise colonizations this week at LSU, both Alpha Alpha Alpha Beta and Zeta Beta Kappa Omega. The amazingly wealthy and supportive alumnae built each chapter a mansion, put on a full-frills recruitment that could not be topped by Hollywood or reality television, and took in new member classes of 375 and 402 women respectively. Both the CIAs and FBIs are expected to take quota easily and snap bid to total. PNMs are eating and power-drinking triple thick chocolate shakes with a passion now, just in case CIA and FBI would reconsider them. I haven't heard about Tau Tau other than they had to consider cutting those women who wore *any* form of Tiffany jewelry for later rounds. It was sad, but important to maintain their longstanding traditions of sisterhood.


Seriously, I don't know a thing about LSU unless you catch me on a day my Wildcats are playing ya'll I'm betting the truths are in these: total was dropped to 199, the bit about Miller Hall being the place to be (don't laugh if I'm totally wrong) and 10 NPC chapters at LSU?

Christin, from what I have learned about LSU, I think you are right, except there would NEVER be a chapter there with three Alpha's in it.

ROFLMAO!!! You GUYS!!! SOOOOOOO FUNNY!

The ALPHA syndrom
Mosquito spray
Mansions TOO, TOO FUNNY!
AOII Alum NOTED-
. I haven't heard about Tau Tau other than they had to consider cutting those women who wore *any* form of Tiffany jewelry for later rounds. It was sad, but important to maintain their longstanding traditions of sisterhood. Too true, (sigh) too true!

MoxieGrrl, We only have 3 HS in our area that tend to feed into recruitment. Two in particular are comprised of kids from the Catholic school and one public Junior High. My kids were really active in sports, leadership and artsy activities, so you get to know the whole spectrum. Plus, they are so close in age friendships overlap. Next year will be my last though...

I don't know where the local girls stand. For the most part, they are nice girls. As usual, many are legacies and went in thinking it was a done deal. I do know mine has her eye on two lovelies in particular.
