Pledging This Year? Hire an Assistant to Help You Get In.

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 2:03 PM

Of the several clubs and organizations college students can involve themselves in, going Greek is definitely one of the top contenders. At the University of Arizona, for example, 13 percent of the student body is involved in Greek Life.

Finding the right sorority or fraternity to rush for is important because not only are you looking for where you fit in, but they are looking for how you’d contribute to their organization. It’s not just about the social aspect of going Greek. Joining one of these organizations has a key professional culture that compares to a job interview.

But imagine if you could pay for someone to coach you into getting past recruitment and part of that brother/sisterhood? Well, the Wall Street is offering image consultants to help girls with hopes of being in a sorority to get through rush in the best way possible, according to The Huffington Post.

Young girls and their parents in the South are paying $8,000 to have a consultant teach them proper etiquette, wardrobe and personal image tips and how to carry on a conversation to help them stand out during the rush process. Talk about crazy. Who knew creating consultants for something like sorority rush, which is now becoming something to be taken seriously, could be such an investment? Not me, that's for sure.
