Wow...so much drama.  I didn't like the comment either (although I will admit that I didn't understand what she was trying to get at).  :-\

I still love Black Greeks...especially the Phirst Pham!   ::) ;D

Skee-wee!

Well, go for it mobell.  :) But understand that along with sisterhood, the organization is a business as well.  Businesses don't always run smoothly and the same applies to any Black Greek Organization.  Anytime money is involved, you start dealing with some different issues.

Muse...there is a great deal of truth to that statement.  Undergrads can't be "picky" anymore.  Sad, but true.  (I feel your pain.)

I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (Pi Beta, Fall 03).  Pretty new to the entire game, but I've learned a LOT about how the organization functions on the grad and national level.  I agree with my soror, elegantpearl01, because I've seen a lot of politics play out on the graduate level.  I attended the National Conference last year and was amazed at how much of a "business" it is.  Because my grad chapter has a LONG history (a founding member and National President were past members), they use politics all the time, especially when voting is an issue.  Membership is by invitation.  That's why I said it's a matter of who you know.  Again, this varies between chapters, but this is my experience.  Research is a must.

Well, my undergrad chapter worked extensively with the grad chapter in my city.  We were required to attend grad chapter meetings, have our grad advisors at all of our programs, as well as participate in programs sponsored by the grad chapter.  I know that in the past my chapter did not work with the grad chapter nearly as much as we do now.  So, I wouldn't say that I don't know how it operates.  I don't know how ALL grad chapters operate, but I am simply reflecting on my experiences with this particular chapter.   :)

I am going into a grad chapter from undergrad in the fall.  I do apologize if it seemed like I was generalizing, but my understanding of what my grad chapter does is that they need to be familiar with an interested candidate.  Simply calling and saying you're interested won't get you anywhere with them unless they meet with you.  (Maybe this is an exception, but that's how they work.)  They are willing to meet with interested people in order to get to the know them, but you have to put forth some effort.  It's a lot easier if you know one of the ladies in the chapter, say through attending the same church or working together. 

I would also add that this grad chapter that I am referring to has a LONG history (one of the first grad chapters in the state), is very active in the region, and has a lot of active members already.  I think it's a lot different with newer grad chapters or ones with low numbers.  The best thing to do is to investigate a little about the grad chapters in your city in order to see what's the best fit for you; different chapters operate differently.

It's who you know that'll get you into a grad chapter.  Then you can find out what you need to do from there.

I was actually in the admissions office on Monday and met with an admissions officer...

I was told that they were waiting to see how many people would reject their offers because they said that each year some people would pay the deposit and not enter because they were taken off the waitlist at a higher ranked school...

There's still a chance...but it's slim.   :-\
