I just finished voting for preference round!!! I'm so excited and it's all starting to feel real! Today I visited the other 2 houses I had for sisterhood.
Phyllis- I went in really wanting to love this house. However, I felt pretty strongly that they did not want me there. Yet again, the girls seemed pretty disinterested in me and they sat me in a back corner where I couldn't even see their presentation. I was also the very first person to leave this house. I didn't feel that their sisterhood was very genuine, and the girl I talked to even went so far as to tell me she and her big are not really friends. It just was not the kind of feeling I was looking for.
Darryl- This house knocked me off my feet today. I talked to multiple girls that were so sweet and welcoming. I felt so comfortable here and I did not want to ever leave. I could tell the girls really all love each other and are there to support one another. This house was definitely my favorite this round.
I ranked the houses in this order for pref:
Darryl
Toby
Karen
Kevin
Phyllis
Creed
Preference round starts tomorrow!! I will keep you all updated!

Is pref a maximum of two parties, or three?

Well, today was pref and it was a very long and tiring day. I received invitations back to 3 houses. They are:
Darryl
Kevin
Creed
I was definitely a little upset about not getting asked back to Toby. I really thought I had connected with them but I tried to put it out of my mind and focus on what I had left.

Creed- I visited this house first. I have tried to drop this house every round, as I have always felt a little awkward here. I've never had a real connection with the girls, but regardless, I went in with an open mind. I talked to the same girl I met during philanthropy round. Our conversation was still pretty forced and awkward, but it was much better than before. I still feel as though I wouldn't fit in at this house.

Darryl- This was the second house I visited today. I have loved it every round, and today was no different. The girls in this house feel like my friends and I am always comfortable to be myself. I can totally see myself in this house.

Kevin- This was my last house of the day. There are definitely some sweet girls in this house, but I don't see myself here. I talked to one of the girls I met during sisterhood round, and our conversation was EXTREMELY awkward. I felt like she wasn't really trying to sell me on her house. Instead, she kept asking things about the weather, my major, etc.

After pref I didn't even want to list all 3 houses on my card. I loved Darryl and could not see myself in either Creed nor Kevin. I eventually decided to list them all anyways, for the security of a guaranteed bid. I listed them as follows:
Darryl
Kevin
Creed
I honestly think that if I receive a bid from Kevin or Creed I will end up dropping, but I am keeping an open mind and will at least try it for a few weeks.
I will let you all know how tomorrow goes.

Oh gosh! I admire your decision to give whichever house shows up on your bid card a chance. It has been said many times here on GC, but some people, and some sorority chapters, have just not perfected their rush personality, but get them out of that scenario and they are great. This may be the same situation.

I hope that you see Darryl on your bid card.

Frosh, hoping you are enjoying bid day activities. But I'm curious as to why you don't feel comfortable at Kevin? You liked them all through the process, and they you. Otherwise they would not have paired you with members studying the same major. Seems like a very viable second choice from your story. Anxious to hear where you landed. Please update GC when you are able. Roll Tide

I can't wait to hear how things worked out for you. Big pat on the back for giving all 3 houses a chance. I have to admit that I was not the best rusher and maybe you got some of those girls. Maybe you will find "your people" in all of the chapters.... fingers crossed!
