I still crack up everytime I read the thread where Allona (the real boy) said, "Nice Tie" and PhiGam proudly responded, "it's either Brooks Brothers or Ralph Lauren".
Until he said it, I thought it was definitely a K-Mart blue light special.

1. Have an answer to the following question : what would you bring to XYZ (or something in that same vain)? Iím not saying be cocky or lie about anything, but itís a common question and a good answer will go a long way.

2. be conversational, keep those one word answers to a minimum and unless you have already gotten to know the brothers be ready to ask a question or two yourself especially about the fraternity .

3. Oh yea, and everyone always says it but please have a bit of Discretion. Honestly, donít tell a brother how many girls youíve banged since high school (even if they ask, because its probably better in the long run to skirt the issue) or tell them any stories that might make you look crazy or like a total drunk. Remember, brothers hold rusheeís to a different standard than they do other brothers or even pledges sometimes.

What I'm trying to say is that I think this could be a good/informative thread, so just ease up a bit, please?
Either they find chivalry offensive or they have nothing better to do then follow around somebody on a message board and criticize their posts. Just because 10% of my posts could be viewed as offensive, I do that because my threads get more views/ hour than any other poster on here.

Perhaps some posters prefer "men" who let the door slam on their face or rush out of the plane/elevator in front of them.

It's not a North/South thing. Men all over do this. It's not so much chivalrous as it is common courtesy for any human to do for another. From time to time, I do this for men without thinking. However I have found many Yankee men find it uncomfortable.

Just like I'll never really understand Panhellenic Recruitment, no woman will ever fully understand IFC/NIC rush. If someone comes in here saying ridiculous things, please at least let the men have a chance to respond before you blast.
I have to agree with you and PhiGam on this thread, but when it comes to the Three A's, you have to add A|X and Hollister to the no list.

I didn't mention the three a's in this thread because this is for all colleges, not just the southern/ fratty ones. I agree with you 100% about the way that fraternity men should dress but its not nationwide, if you wear boat shoes and croakies in the midwest they'll laugh at you the same way that we laugh at people wearing cargo shorts with an abercrombie muscle tee.

I never said it was a north/ south thing. It is certainly more prevalent in the south though.

I think there's a difference between opening the door and holding it if you get to the door first and going out of your way to open the door (i.e. stepping in front for the sole purpose of opening the door). The former is natural, the latter is chivalrous.

PhiGam will agree, you should try this look during rush. It will go over well at UCLA, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Florida.... It's a timeless look

^^^LOLOLOL - that kid in the middle is definitely wearing make-up (and he needs his tweezers taken away -- actually, they all do).
