|1.||take the fall|
Something bad happened, someone is going to get blamed and suffer the consequences of the act. Righteously, it should be the person who planned it, but, everything is negotiable. Someone else goes to jail, and in return, he is owed a favor. Or maybe, he just gets set up. This 1940's film noir gangster term is finding a new cachet.
You shot him brother so don't look at me like that. I'm not gonna take the fall for you.

A period of time when fraternities and sororities promote their organizations and solicit potential new members to apply for membership.more...
There are several types of sorority Rush, a.k.a. Recruitment. Twenty six sororities are members of the National Panhellenic Council, and follow policies set forth by the NPC and their respective school and chapters.
Formal recruitment, which is characterized by a series of planned, timed parties leading up to finding out which (if any) sorority has invited you to join.
In the first round, you spend a short amount of time with each group, and learn more about each group. A Rho Gamma (Recruitment Guide) is a member of a non-disclosed sorority, and is your guide through the process. She leads small groups through each step of the process and is your go-to for all questions.
The second round is usually a house tour (if houses exist on your campus) of each group.
The third event is Pref night, where you select which group(s) you wish to join, and may be exposed to some organized presentation by each sorority.
The final event is BID DAY, where potential new members find out which sorority (if any) that you have preffed has selected you to join. If there is a match (a.k.a. mutual selection), a bid is extended, which you must sign. You are then taken to the house or chapter room. If you do not get a bid, you have not been selected to join a sorority at that time.
COB is short for Continuous Open Bidding. This occurs if a ...
Social sororities, those that people are most familiar with, recruit new members through a process called "Mutual selection". The challenge to potential new members (PNMs) is navigating rush successfully. The goal of rush is to get a bid.
Many girls who do not get a bid rack their brains trying to figure out why they were not chosen by a particular - or any - sorority. While there are strict guidelines against discrimination of all kinds, there is a very calculated "formula" for observing and choosing new members.
Rushees or PNMs will go to a series of parties. Each woman is being evaluated. Communication skills, appearance, high school and college transcripts (which the sorority has access to) which list your GPA and activities and offices held, even your hometown - all matter.
Every minute of every party is choreographed. Members rehearse conversations, practice telling specific stories, and have memorized questions designed to get the PNM to reveal information that they may not realize that they are revealing. Some sororities rehearse communication for 2 HOURS PER DAY the week before rush begins.
Reasons why you may or may not be offered a bid:more...
- being identified as a “scholarship risk”. Even if your GPA is at or above the minimum required, it may not be high enough. Example: 2.9 and below as a freshman, 2.5
and below. Only a small percentage of scholarship risk PNMs can be selected.
- Leadership experiences.
- Geographics. If 50 percent of the students are from the state, the new member class should reflect that. Same with other areas. So in some cases, being from a different part of the country might be a plus, if there is a certain percentage of students from that area.
- People who are from "desirable" locations, such as a certain state, a cosmopolitan city, even other countries.
- Class balance requirements. Freshman obviously have the most time to devote to the chapter, but there is a need to have enough memebers at each grade level to ensure the vitality and desirablility in the eyes of PNMs.
- Legacies. A legacy is a daughter or sister, and sometimes even stepsisters and stepdaughters. These ladies are usually guaranteed to make it to the second round of recruitment, and are automatically placed higher on the bid list if the chapter wants to extend a bid.
- References. Some schools or sororities pretty much require them.
- Unique qualities, talents, work experience, and hobbies. Athletes, muscicians, internships, travels ... something that sets you apart from the other members.
- Diversity of all sorts.
