First of all...please refrain from further use of the word "soror". Secondly, You do not CHOSE if you will pledge or not, pledging is a privilege and NOT a right! LASTLY, don't believe everything that you hear...just because people say that the line is paper doesn't mean that they are. If you truly wanted to join an organization for ALL the RIGHT reasons you wouldn't care about the rumors.

There are so many things that bother me about this post, but what is most important is that if you have serious doubts about pursuing on organization because you heard they did not undergo a process then you should take some more time to think about why you are interested in the organization, what you can bring to the organization(not just what can the organization teach or do for you), and what is important to you. Your decision should be based on the principles of the organization, what you believe you can bring to further these principles, as well as how well you can interact with the ladies of the organization, if all of these factors are taken care of then your decision should come easier. Good Luck

Once again though, if i offended (or will offend) anybody with my 1st post, i apologize, but take into account it was late & i wasnt really thinkin bout how it might come across...and da lack of knowing what i could say & couldn't say...1

The reputation is not everything. Like it was said before, not everything you hear is true. What is more important is how you fit into the org as a whole. Only a small portion of your time will be spent on that campus. Once you leave the thoughts and feelings of people on that campus may become obsolete. It more important to see whether or not you fit into the org because of what it stands for rather than what people think of certain members. The actions of a few does not reflect the whole.

baby doll, there is so much wrong with that post that i don't even know where to begin. First of all, i know waaaaaay too much of your bizniz than necessary. UMES is nothin but a hop & skip away from HU. U provided me with so much info, than i can figure out which org u are interested in, and if i had the time or energy, i could probably even find out who u are. That is NOT the bizniz sweety. U gotta be way more discrete than that. But back to the matter at hand, like everyone has already said...what people think of that organization should not deter u away from how you feel about it. If everyone did not agree with your religion, would u change it just to appease their feelings? U gotta go with where your heart & gut leads u. There should be no doubt in your mind, and if there is...then that org was probably never for u to begin with.

I'll have to agree with Kenya on u kinda put too much info out there. Once you get on the net and start talking about greek stuff you'd be shocked at how many of them know eachother and know different members at ur school. It seems as though you do have a somewhat serious intrest in whatever Org. So I'll tell you this...you don't have to apologize for whatever you say. Don't blame it on ur lack of sleep or knowledge pertaining to the subject just roll with the punches and accept ur mistakes. Sometimes they feel as if they never had made any type of "mistake" before they became what they are. Never apologize for something you want to know. Just next time talk to someone you trust who's not on the internet. I mean just think if you were in XYZ org. would you want someone to get on a website and blast about how "they aren't interested because XYZ might be "paper"? Once again ur best bet is to talk to a friend about it...trustworthy friend and try to gain as much knowledge about ur org. of choice as possible.

Tell em how you feel HBIC. In addition. . . even if they are paper, I bet they will still have a line, with or without you. Marinate on that.
