ABSTRACT
Presents an interview with Alexandra Robbins, author of the book, "Pledged: The Secret Life of Sororities." On pledging: Some parents take sorority affiliations so seriously that they hire "rush consultants" to guide their girls through rush. In Texas, when one girl chose a lower-tiered sorority, her mother hissed, "You just ruined your life." On hazing: In some sororities girls will still paddle each other till their behinds are bleeding. They will force girls to do things like boob ranking, where they're given five minutes to examine each other's chests and rank themselves by size.
