FTW - yes, I wish more moms and pnms realized that! I need to go to bed, but now I'm dying to know about your daughter

With a highly competitive recruitment like UGA, I believe you just need someone on the inside pulling for you every step of the way. From what I can remember from the process many, many years ago, there was always someone pulling for someone from their hometown, cousin, etc. All that means is when the tough decisions come around regarding cuts/quotas, there are so many great girls who slip through the cracks because no one knows them very well. It's all good. My DD is pretty amazing. She will be disappointed if she does not get a bid, but she knows that she needs to move on. She has a very positive attitude and no resentment toward any sorority. Isn't that awesome?
I know exactly how you feel, I had no idea it would be so cutthroat! I honestly thought that because my daughter is gorgeous that she would have no problem getting in anywhere. I have learned a lot for sure but with the Auburn recruitment one thing I noticed when looking over the list of new members (that irishpipes so kindly broke down for us) is that there were LOTS of out of state girls in every group. I also noticed that most girls who went thru pref rounds and hung in there got a bid. I haven't heard of anyone who didn't. One girl from here only had one party after the philanthrophy round and then she was cut from that one after the skit round I felt so bad for her but she got a snap bid from them after all!

Your daughter sounds like a great girl. When is UGA bid day?

I imagine if they are getting a sad call from their GC, it's coming about now. Snap bidding has begun.

We need something like the maps they use in the elections that show by colour which candidate has won - so I guess a map of the campus with the houses in the groups' colours - hmmmmmmm. . .or "paper doll" cutouts of the pnms, to be coloured with the appropriate colours as the results come in.

I'll agree to pink, but gotta love my brown!

eta - and it's almost midnight now - surely the call would have come by now if it was to come .


eta - drat, drat, drat. I must go to sleep - but I'm hoping for really great news for you, UGAMom.

uga rush

I am also anxious to hear results - my daughter's house has had a great rush, but I am sad because so many of her friends going through have been cut out early in the process - not what I have been used to in years past. The gamma chi I talked to yesterday said drops and cuts were high this year. Hope they aren't all working for the same group of girls
