My Rush Story...

Hey Everyone!
Im so glad that i was refered to this place by Jill1228 (i cannot thank you enough).

I go to the University of Montevallo (a small school of about 3000 students), and the sororities there are (there are roughly about 100 girls rushing):

*Alpha Delta Pi
*Alpha Gamma Delta
*Chi Omega
*Delta Gamma
*Phi Mu

I am so very nervous about going through with recruitment in 2 days (starts on Thursday). I have always wanted to rush, but i went to a Community College for the first 2 years of my college life, and as we all know, there are no sororities/fraternities there). Then i transfered to a big Uni. and i hated it. Then i made my way to UM Fall 2002. I wanted to rush then, but i just wasnt ready... so now im worried that i might have 2 things against me:
1. I am a Junior
2. I am Married

I might have some doubt, but im trying to stay optomistic since i know some juniors have rushed and gotten bids and even one married girl that i know of.

Anyway, tonight we have our last meeting before rush, kind of an orientation type thing.

Thanks for listening!

Ive got a question i forgot to post earlier...

Is it common at most schools for Freshmen and Sophomores to get higher points than a Junior, or is this just a sorority/school preference?

Best of luck juliebug! I don't know about all schools giving more points to freshmen/sophomores....I think it might be a larger issue with larger chapters, but that's just my (underinformed) opinion.....I went to a university with about 3000 undergrads, and there were a number (small, but there) of sophomores and juniors going through recruitment....I was one of them, and it was the best decision I ever made!

Power to the Juniors!! Rock the Rush!!!

Hehehe, anyway on a more serious note. I think my plan of attack to dull the possible "stigma" of being an upperclassman is to emphasize that I know what I am getting into: as in the ways of balancing school and the sorority. I plan on graduating 3 years. And in those 3 years I will definately make the absolute most of my time in the sisterhood because my time is so precious.


Good luck with everything.

Julie!
Hey baby! You started your thread while I was at work. Glad you found us here! Cause when you posted on the other board, you didn't get that much positive feed back...
I was like Step AWAY from the HATER-ADE!

I think things are very different with smaller schools and schools that don't have a large Greek System.

Make sure you do your homework on each org. When you finish each rush day, sit down for a few minutes and take notes...

As for the rush thread name each house something...avoid using names.

Let me find some threads for you to do homework on!

Hey girl!
I knew one of our LC's was from there a few years ago- her name is Kelly Barry and I loved her. We wanted to keep her, we even tried to hide things from her so she would have to come back! She loved her time in AGD and from what she said about the campus it is a great place and beautiful! I can't wait to hear your story.
Oh, and as for the junior and married thing, I know we had sisters that were married when they pledged and they were TREMENDOUS assets to the sorority!

Ohh, rush threads, why must you be so addictive!?
