How does admissions look at being heavily involved in your fraternity?


it's a solid "meh"


Hmm... how about working with Panhellenic? the so called UN of sororities?


Lol fraternities. Also whoever necro'd this thread better get some seriously good traction out of it. I'm talking pro-trolling, no crappy lightweight stuff.

You pretty much nailed it right there. The vast majority of softs (i.e. frats, clubs and activities, jobs, etc) have value insomuch as they show you're not just sitting on your ass and that you can at least function with other people. They're probably not going to help you, but a lack of softs might hurt you.
