They are holding on to their "top tier" status by a thread. It is really based on their past and not as much on who they are today. I predict they will slip somewhat this year during recruitment, but still finish strong.
WTF?!!! DG is so crazy over-rated on here. PLEASE, for the love of all that is good in this world, do not get swept up in the DG facade that they put on during recruitment. You will be so disappointed.
I joined DG and was miserable. The older girls were just mean and didn't treat us right. It was not what I was expecting and really wish I would have joined one of my other two options where I have friends who are really happy. PNMs, please don't buy in to the DG hype. They are all show at recruitment and the "sisterhood" part is a complete lie!
I generally agree with the previous rating. DG does present itself really well during formal recruitment as do most of the houses. They all put their best face on things. While I don't think DG is "terrible", I don't think that they really live up to all the hype. They are more middle tier IMO. They lack in true sisterhood and have problems with how to deal with members who break rules. The fact that they are on social probation is a bit revealing.
there will be lots of talk about dg during recruitment. it always happens. i was caught up in it and joined. i was thrilled on bid day thinking that i was going to be so happy. then reality set in. i'm not there any longer and can just advise pnms to be careful about getting caught up in hype.
