I'm writing a novel and want to be as true to reality as possible about this. Wiki seems to imply that all or a big chunk of juniors gather some

have to apply to be tapped, or are potential members scoped out without any participation on their part? If you can give as much info as possible
about the process that would be really, really kind of you. Any other quirky or interesting information would also be helpful!
Being *tapped* is actually part of a conditioning program, which begins the moment a potential meets a member. If you have to ask to join, you're
not worthy of joining. However, if you ARE asked, why then, you must be some kind of big deal. Someone *special*. The recruitment process is about
making the candidate feel special. Though, the *grooming* conditioning begins at a much earlier age, by parents who wish for their children to carry
on the current economical/political systems. Preserving the status quo. In any case, I think we'd all be surprised at just how silly these groups
can actually be.
Candidates are definitely vetted prior to invitation. These groups are looking for like minded people, that's how the old world order is preserved
and has sustained for so long now.
Anyways, I hope you find this useful! Good luck with your writing!
