Well i would say going to Yale helps out your chances in life. And also, do they not only recruit the best students and in only certain areas?
This whole things is really ridiculous, leave this fraternity alone.
Yeah, going to Yale definitely looks good on the resume. As for the S&B recruitment, I believe they take 15 students per year, and those students are
selected; you don't apply for S&B, they contact you. They base their choices on your family/personal connections and your money. They are trying to
pick the people they think have the best chances of becoming "figures of extreme power", as navajo says. That's why so many of them go on to
become major players; they're picked for that. I think they do take a look at your marks too; after all, they don't want to let in idiots into
their group (oh, wait, George W. got in, maybe I should take that back) but the major considerations are of course the connections&cash.
I'm not sure what you mean by recruiting students from 'only certain areas'. If I recall correctly, the seniormost students choose students from a
younger year (I think it is 4th years recruiting 3rd, but I could be wrong; I am correct in saying it's a certain year that recruits from another) I
get the feeling that isn't what you meant, though. Did you mean that they only recruit from certain faculties? I don't know the answer to that.
