Can you join a sorority second semester?
But you cant let your grades fall to the wayside, because your acceptance into the sorority depends on them (to some extent).

Do you have to be rich to be in a sorority?
You have to be rich: I wont lie to you. Almost all hold part time jobs or internships. Many pay for their dues. Some pay for other bills such as car insurance, renters insurance (if living off campus), for their gas, cell phone bill, etc. Dues can seem expensive but theyre worth it.
Is it better to rush in the fall or spring?
“Spring rush is more about getting to know the girls and for them to find out more about the sorority theyre looking into,” Kattan said. “With fall rush, you dont really get to know about the sorority you want until you are initiated, but with spring rush, you get a big picture of the sorority.”
Do sororities do spring rush?
The sororities that hold spring rush are usually the ones that didnt meet their quota of pledges in the fall, so theyll generally be eager for you to join and there will be less pressure. Theyll be able to tell you what their specific sororities are like and also give you some tips about rushing.

How do sororities decide who to drop?
After every round of sorority recruitment, you vote on which sororities you want to be invited back to for the next round. The sororities vote on the girls they want to see come back. Mutual selection is how Panhellenic determines which sororities you get invited back to for the next round.
What GPA do sororities look at?
Most minimum GPAs are around 2.7 to 3.0. You may be able to find each sororitys GPA on their official sorority website. Another idea is to look up the grade report for your college.
