Anonymous asked: Do most hbcu's require you to have 30 credit hours to pledge? Also how long does one typically rush for getting to meet members and chapter function is it typically a year or semester?
Yes most do it’s a liability issue. Freshmen aren’t typically mature enough to pledge, and balance college life at the same time.
At least a semester but typically a year. Most aspirants quit after a few months. Those who grind it out and are known by the members get the interviews and the opportunity to pledge.
Anonymous asked: How could a chapter be exempted from the moratorium?
What actually goes into getting that pass I can’t discuss. Each organization has it’s procedures for it. Satisfying every single test to be even considered is extremely difficult.
Anonymous asked: What are your chances of pledging as a junior or transfer student at an hbcu?
It depends on the relationships you with members on campus. The better the relationship the higher your chances. For transfers they would also need to establish grades at that college before they are eligible.
Anonymous asked: If the chapter you want to pledge just had a line would you have to wait a year or two for the chapter to host another at an hbcu? What would be the usually timing?
Each school is different. Some schools space pledging out to keep a balance with the other organizations on campus. The graduate chapter who is responsible for that campus chapter may also want to have a line once a year instead of twice.
Anonymous asked: Would it be more difficult pledging at a single letter chapter especially if that chapter calls it self bloody or even getting an invitation to pledge?
Yes simply because of their history. Don’t mistake harder or selective as a reason not to try and pledge. You don’t know what the members are looking for. You will have to prove yourself earlier than most chapters. KNOW YOUR CHAPTER AND ORGANIZATION HISTORY VERY WELL.
Anonymous asked: Reply to leaving local org and joining NPHC: since you say don't volunteer information that isn't needed do you feel as though I shouldn't be honest or tell them that I was apart of it and left because I was misguided from rush and it was more of like a club? Do you feel if I get to a certain phase and they find out they would be mad?
Before I answer your query is this local organization Greek ? Is it Panhellenic? Better yet what is this organization called? We would be able to tell you if you are even eligible for NPHC organizations. If feel more comfortable message me directly aceunibomber06. On my Alpha word I’ll keep whatever we discuss between us.
Now to answer your question. You should be honest always however being honest doesn’t mean volunteer information. Answer only the questions you are asked and not what you think they want to hear. If you were part of an organization and have left unless they ask you don’t need to tell them why.
Look at it this way. Q. What college did you go to? A. UMBC I majored in Biochem. And Mol. Bio. BS I really liked that major but it was so hard. My peers were cool but the school had so much politics…..
Did I answer the question? Yes ( UMBC ) but everything after that was information they never asked.
NPHC organizations will ask what you are/ were part of. They may never ask you why you left those organizations. If they get upset with you it will be very very early on. Understand everything you tell members of the organization you are interested in will be used against you later during your interview.
Make sure the your membership in the organization you were part of doesn’t disqualify you from membership into NPHC
