Purdue prides itself on the Greek community. We shouldn't be tearing anyone down or putting anyone in rankings we should be coming together to promote how amazing we ALL are. This site should NOT be about giving rushees advice on what the "top house" is. In each houses' own way we are ALL top and they should be picking a house on where they feel the most connected because that's what matters in the long run, not the popularity contest. You as an individual choose your own popularity that may or may not be separate from the popularity label your house has been given on this so called "helpful" site and once your in Greek life you will learn that. I would strongly encourage everyone interested in rush to keep an open mind and ignore this site. Every house has amazing girls (the smartest girls, most popular girls, cheerleaders, honor society members from various high schools -EVERY house).
@ranktorushees has it right, those 4 houses were the top picks for the past few years only i would say zeta and tridelt probably aren't at the same level as the others listed in the 2nd tier, but better than 3rd. The "actual" ranking to the left are totally false, don't even pay attention to that
You can't come in thinking about the stereotypes of houses or how they are ranked. You will end up picking the wrong house and more than likely you will end up being miserable. I went through rush not having a clue how each house was ranked and ended up picking the perfect house for me and I couldn't be happier. In the end, it comes down to which girls you find fit your personality better. Best of luck at recruitment!
