First off, let me congratulate you all. You’ve made it to the “Top Tier”. You’re in one of the best frats on campus, and you should be very proud of yourselves. The next 7 semesters are going to be great. You’re officially “on top”, and you’re going to be respected. People will look up to you, and all you have to do is smile and act like you’re a champ, because, well, you are.
<br>
<br>Sorry to break it to you, but this isn’t a fairytale. Your life isn’t going to suddenly become picture perfect because you can now friend request a few SNus on Facebook. Don’t believe me? Well, consider this:
<br>
<br>1. Rush wasn’t real. If you didn’t realize it already, frats were trying to impress YOU for the past 3 weeks. Sure, you had to make small talk and show the boys you could handle your booze, but in the end, they needed you to make up the “best pledge class” to stay on top. So, they rolled out the red carpet. Expensive dinners and drugs, all on them, just seemed to good to be true. And guess what? It was. Now that these frats own you, they don’t need to impress you anymore. They’re going to do what they want, whether you like it or not. They’re going to make you miserable and degrade you because someone degraded them when they were in your shoes. They’re going to make you do disgusting, immoral, and awful things you’ll some day regret, and tell you to ask for more. And you’ll probably do it, because you think being “on top” is better than being “no one”. If you’re not a fratstar, then who are you?
<br>
<br>2. Greek life ends when you graduate. While you’re amongst your Duke friends in the Duke bubble, Greeks are king, because without frats, how would all the underage kids get drunk on the weekends? You play an important role in our social scene, and at the end of the night, when the last piss-colored drop of Busch Lite has flowed from an empty keg, people text, “Bro, I’mam soOoo druiunkkk. But thait frat is TITE” to all their friends. So it’s all worth it. But then, your junior year. Those “nobody” independents you ragged on, the ones that didn’t come to your parties, are getting fantastic internships, opening up doors that you wish were available to you. Now of course, you go to Duke, and you’re able to get a decent internship anyway, but then, you start applying to grad schools. And a disproportionate number of those nobodies get into the best schools in the world. The same schools that will eventually send you your “I’m sorry to inform you” letters. And you’ll settle for second best. Or third. Or whatever you can get. You’re no longer “Top Tier” in anything. You’re in the real world. Somehow, your DSig leather jacket doesn’t seem so significant.
<br>
<br>3. You still look like an idiot even if you’re “Top Tier”. With all the newest pledges roaming around campus, strutting down the sidewalks like nothing else matters, there has been a noticeable rise in the number of stupid comments I hear daily. As a general note, your new Greek affiliation does not make your idiotic remarks invisible to the world around you. Asking girls on the C1 for belly shots at next Friday’s mixer and bragging about the 15 girls you hooked up with during a progressive (making a point to say that you can’t remember a single name) does not make you look intelligent. It doesn’t make anyone envy you. If you really want these girls to know about the disgusting, moronic things you’ve done in the past week, send them a text so I don’t need to hear you. You are not impressing any of the kids you happen to be sitting next to, and when people randomly start laughing out loud right after you say things, you can assume it’s at your expense. If there is one thing that still baffles me, its that you all don’t see me, my friends, and random people I’ve never even met laughing – directly – in your face. If I can stress one point out of everything I’ve said, its that the vast majority of the people at Duke do not want what you have. They don’t wish they were in your shoes, and they certainly don’t go home wishing they were “that guy” on the bus making a complete idiot out of himself. And if most people don’t want what you’re packing, what, if anything, of value do you honestly have?
<br>
<br>To those who I have inevitably offended, bash this post all you want, because each time you comment, you bump it to the top. I have never checked this website before in my time here at Duke, but I was so disgusted by some of the things said that I thought I should at least respond to it in some way. I will not be checking this site again because it is not worth my time, but I hope something I said at least makes you think before you go head first into the “Top Tier”. These are my thoughts after having gone to this school for an incredible 3 1/2 years, and now you can decide how much weight you want to give to them.
<br>
<br>Best,
<br>Senior GDI

you are an idiot. its human nature to want to fuck hot girls. and dont respond by saying we only fuck slutty low self esteem sorority girls because i have fucked many GDIs who are hot. the reason: im better looking, funnier and more confident than GDI guys. as are the most top tier guys. I am also capable of a deep relationship with a girl when i find the right girl, so dont make thta stupid argument just because i fill the other times with one-night stands.
<br>
<br>Also, you are a GDI, and have no idea what pledging entails. sure you might hear stories of what we have to eat and shit, butyou dont understand it. it brings you closer to the older brothers if anything and i wouldn’t trade it. and the stuff is only immoral if you do it against your will, which is not the case.
<br>
<br>The people making stupid comments on the bus are a minority in the greek scene, and what the fuck do you care what they talk about. joking about body shots with a girl seems like perfectly legitemate flirtation, something you most likely wouldn’t have the confidence to pull off.
<br>
<br>Also, frat GPAs are higher.
<br>
<br>So next time you are on your comp, instead of writing a stupid letter to collegeacb, just jerk off to the life you could have had if you weren’t awkward and ugly.
