Fraternities and labor-market outcomes

Popov, Sergey V ORCID: and Bernhardt, Dan 2012. Fraternities and labor-market outcomes. American Economic Journal: Microeconomics 4 (1) , pp. 116-141. 10.1257/mic.4.1.116

We model how student choices to rush a fraternity, and fraternity admission choices, interact with signals firms receive about student productivities to determine labor-market outcomes. The fraternity and students value wages and fraternity socializing values. We provide sufficient conditions under which, in equilibrium, most members have intermediate abilities: weak students apply, but are rejected unless they have high socializing values, while most able students do not apply to avoid taint from association with weaker members.
