Wait, are we talking about frats or the illuminati?

Personally, I welcome our keg-standing overlords.

I wasn't going to post this originally, but somebody needs to basically step up to Mr. Seminole since he continues to run his mouth. So frat boys are stupid and tend to do worse than your average college student, eh? Well...

Did You Know?

85% of Fortune 500 Executives

85% of US Supreme Court Justices since 1800

76% of US Congressmen

All but two US Presidents since 1825


Were All Greek!

Additionally, did you know that Nationwide the All-Greek GPA for students is significantly higher than the All-Student GPA?

For some reason (probably since they are associated with partying and shady business) frats are portrayed exactly the opposite. I blame, among others, the media. Remember the 'SDSU Frat drug bust' a few months back. I did some research on it... less than 10% of the students arrested in the bust were in fraternities. Yet every news story just showed fraternity house after fraternity house.

Thinking off the top of my head of the Greeks I know going to law school this year from my undergrad... one is going to NYU, one is going to Michigan (that guy got a 180 on his LSAT fwiw), one is going to Hastings (due to a fatty scholarship, but he also got into UCLA fwiw), one is going to Vandy, another is going to USD (but he also got into Hastings and BC), and three others are also going to USD (it's worth mentioning my undergrad was in SoCal). I only know one 'frat boy' who is going to a T3 law school (Syracuse) and none going to a T4.

If that doesn't PWN Ninja1's argument, then at the very least my anecdotes cancel out his.

Link?



I don't care either way but I those are definitely interesting statistics...



Google it and you'll find it on several sites.

Very frat-like to not cite your sources...typical.

Typical GDI response to be assanine and argue over something he could easily google.

Approximately 80% of the top executives in Fortune 500 are fraternity men
71% of men listed in Who's Who in America are fraternity me
76% of the current United States Senators and Congressmen are fraternity men
40 of the 47 Supreme Court Justices since 1910 have been fraternity men
100 of the 158 cabinet members since 1900 have been fraternity men
All but 3 United States Presidents since 1825 have been fraternity men

There are many types of fraternities and I am extremely skeptical that the ones at my school (Arizona State) are churning out future Congressmen, CEOs, or presidents of the United States.

Unfortunately, he was. Anti-frat talk gets way under his skin.

Like date rape jokes rattle Julie Fern.

Hmm.  I guess everyone has their pet peeves.  My comment was just a joke to my buddy FL...didn't mean any harm...

DS, what the heck?  How are things??

That's kind of a shame.  I can only do my best though; can't worry about things beyond my control.


I'm curious about the myspace infiltration though...
