For Tiff -- so she doesn't have to see Sands' name up no more.

Question:  If pledging to an Alumni chapter -- better year to do it: 1L or 2L?  Is it advisable at all during 1L?  Is it as "bad" an experience as pledging to a college chapter?

I'm not a male, but I'll answer your questions

1st ? - Probably 2L, since being active is a pretty big time committment and you'll probably want to be pretty active as a new member (I know of a guy that went to HLS from my UG and he because Greek while in LS - I think it was during his 2nd or 3rd year)

2nd ? - Not usually.


Good.  So it can be done.  I'll shoot for 2L.

1. Don't do the ish 1L.
 
2. If you can afford to participate in Grad intake without being gainfully employed you are a TRUE BALLER

Yeah, well, I guess when you're 30 Gz in debt already another 1-2 won't hurt nearly as much.

Yeah, that's like the organization I was interested in telling me, "we don't haze or do anything like that" forever and then being like "okay, from here on out, if you stick with it, we're gonna whoop you ass."

Mmhmm.

Blk -- I thought you might find this interesting.  It looks well-made.

BLACK SORORITY PROJECT, THE EXODUS
Derek & Jamar Productions presents the first installment in a new two-part documentary series, The Black Sorority Project. "The Exodus" chronicles the life and times of twenty-two women at Howard University, who as students, changed the course of American history forever. By defying the barriers of race and sex, they courageously joined the Women's Suffrage March and formed a new sorority, Delta Sigma Theta, that grew to become one of the nation's most formidable women's organizations. The timeless voice of Tamara Tunie (Law & Order: SVU, As The World Turns) transports you back in time on a photographic journey into the world of these Howard co-eds in the infancy of their burgeoning group, in the year 1913.

Black Sorority Project, The Exodus leaves no stone unturned: light skin versus dark skin, the myth of black unity and the triumph of women's achievement against the odds. With cutting edge special effects, blistering commentary and a stellar cast of actors and scholars, Black Sorority Project is an innovation in modern-day storytelling and an untold chapter in women's history.
