A bit of a lame question, but as of now recruiting for SA 2020 seems to be on the same accelerated timeline and recruiting will begin by March/April. This means networking should occur in the months following up to that.
However, I am seriously considering pledging a fraternity this semester. Juggling classes, pledging, and recruiting all at the same time may prove very difficult and I don't want to throw away potentially the one shot I have and what I have been preparing myself for all this time with IB recruitment. This would also though be the last shot I would have to pledge a house during my undergrad as well. Obviously career prospects are likely more important, but being a part of a fraternity may very well allow me experiences and 'polishing' that may pay dividends later on throughout life.
**I also haven't secured a summer 2019 role yet either.
Any thoughts? I know many on here were former greeks themselves.
