When is TOO much? Posted on 08-11-2004
jadekiss

To put this simply...Planning on doing big things this spring. I've been geeked to do this since I was in the 8th grade. So seeing as I've been preparing since 8th grade...no...seriously...I have a vast amount of information on a certain sorority burned into my memory. And I don't plan on stopping with the reading and researching. BUT a freind of mines told me once told me that greeks were less likely to accept someone into their flanks when there is nothing to teach , because learning is a big part of the process. Now, I can't help that I have this information in my head...my question is. If this is true, do I downplay the knowledge and keep my mouth shut <~ :evil: or do what I do? OHH I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION!! Do greeks so mercy and compassion... My G.P.A. might not be what it should be this spring because ...well some very very sad series of events for my family. Does it matter that I've lost members of my family recently or do I just have to have the G.P.A. no matter what the circumstances? Okay...I'm thru...

Let me post some GPA Ranking of our EXCELLENT students within the NPHC.. http://web2.unt.edu/dos/new/gl/charts/NPHC_GradeChart.html DAMN..the Iotas there had a 1.7..Sweet Jesus :lol: The Deltas pulled out a 2.4 GPA..THE AKA's had a 2.9 At Virgina CommonWealth The average GPA for NPHC greeks was a 2.3 GPA.. http://web2.unt.edu/dos/new/gl/charts/NPHC_GradeChart.html But you are right..We all nongreek and greek must strive for the best but we as Greeks will have to start doing what we preach.. How did the Iotas get a 1.7?? That's crazy :evil: :x Yea..to the people that are interested in pledging..Look up the chapter that you want to join and check their GPA's and see where their heads are as a whole..
Once again, you missed the whole damn point. Damn man. You must be one of those 1.7 having muhfuggas. :roll: I guess if your mama is a crackhead hoe, then you have to follow in her footsteps. She can't tell you it's wrong or that it's a better way to do it? Dayum dude.

Maybe I am missing your point. I don't understand why you have to insult me..All I am saying is that every organization requests that the candidate has over a 2.5GPA when in reality the CHAPTER, at times, as a WHOLE barley has a 2.5 GPA, sometimes lower..

Maybe I shouldn't have exposed the fact that a lot of Greeks aren't doing as well as most Outsiders think :wink: :?

I think that she's tryin to say that you are making it sound like its ok for chapters or individual greeks to have less than a 2.5 GPA... thats what would it would sound like for some ignorant... :?...let say unknowledgeable GDI who has no comprehension about greek life whatsoever... By listening to some of the things that you are saying... some of these people out here might thing that all that have to do is barely maintain a 2.5, and once they... if they get selected and manage to finish it'll be alright to let their GPA's drop (which we all know is not the case). All of the D9 orgs were founded on the basic principles of brother/sisterhood, service, and ....scholarship. I think Trauma is getting a little upset because you are acting like the majority of Greeks out dont even give a f*ck about scholarship... :? I dont care bout what somebody has to say about my comments but I just wanted to say what was on my mind. Im sorry if I sounded disrespectful to any of the Greeks here on this site but I just could see where Trauma was coming from... 8) *back to GDI mode*

Oh I'm not saying it's OK to have a low GPA before and after you pledge.. But I'm saying that there are chapters in every Org. that have members that don't give a DAMN about their GPA..I just presented some proof of that.. Sh*t, it's just the truth :roll:

Nobody is saying that some Greeks don't uphold the standards, but that is not what this conversation was about. An interestee was asking about things that would make her a more attractive candidate, so I gave her advice. And you chose to start going on about the GPAs of those who already have letters. Letters can't be taken back due to low GPAs. However, letters can be witheld due to low GPAs. I advised the girl to get a higher GPA, whereas you are so adamant about just having a 2.5, which is the bare minimum. WTF is that all about? What's wrong with her trying to achieve more? What's wrong with me, a Delta with well over a 3.0, encouraging her to strive higher. If your lowered expectations for candidates is indicative of Iota chapters as a whole, then that 1.7 doesn't surprise me in the least. How dare you, a Black man, a member of a BGLO argue minimalist standards. Brother, you need to step up. There was no trying to hide anything. You just took it upon yourself to start talking about Greek GPAs in general. Each chapter of each BGLO is different. Some chapters of Delta don't accept applicants with less than a 3.0. And that is perfectly fine. Some chapters have throngs of applicants with a 2.5 on the dot, and that is their business. But all I was trying to do was help the girl be the best applicant she could possibly be.

Somebody get this "Low Down Dirty Once a Month Bleeding ****"..How dare you try and insult my org.. I never said that she shouldn't strive to have a high GPA..All I'm saying is that some Chapters don't even hold true to their standards themselves..

You may have misunderstood me.. I take my grades very seriously. I'm a scholar and I will have a very successful career once I receive my degree. Iím assuming that the young lady feels the same way as I do and would not want to join a Organization that had a bunch of underachievers that are trying to front by wearing their letters.. I'm telling her that all is not great on the inside and that she should research the Chapter's history including the chapter's GPA history..To make sure that the organization she is looking at is good enough for HER
