    I got a letter from them last semester and I didn't realize what it was and I think I may have thrown in out I just emailed them back so maybe I can still join.

    I believe that PTK membership is controlled through the local community college, so there should be an advisor on campus that you can contact.
    I was a member in name only (not involved in any activities), but was still awarded a half-price tuition waiver at my university. It should be worth about $15,000 by the time I've earned my BSN.
    I think the $65 I paid to be a member was well worth it. I tell everyone to check into it... if you've made the grades, why not take advantage of them!

    I got invited to join, but changed colleges during the semester I could have become a member. Then, I didn't get invited at the new college (even though my grades were good enough) because I was only a part-time student.

    I just looked on their web site and I was mistaken. Now I have a beef with them.In the fall of 2002 my GPA was 3.54 I wonder why I wasn't invited to join?

    Really? Apparently none of the ones I've attended! LOL

    Hopefully I'll get invited again after this semester - I'm taking 13 hours. I'm a little worried about my GPA though, since the B I got last semester dropped it a point or two.

    I would contact the chapter at your school then and see why?

    Does the benefits of being a member out way the dues?
