Do fraternities at USC accept junior transfer students?

So I spent freshmen and half of sophomore year in community college and successfully transferred to University of Southern California (USC). I attended the house tours at the start of rush week and really liked what was going on at Alpha Tau Omega (ATO) but due to a clash in class schedule, I wasn't able to attend the first day of rush activities for spring '13 rush and upon returning on the second day, was told that the subsequent events were only for rushees who attended the first day.

I would like to try again next semester in the fall but would be a junior by then and would like to ask: what are my chances of getting a bid at ATO? Or for the matter, at any other fraternity? I heard Theta Xi accepts juniors but then again I was also told they accept anyone in general. Can someone help me out here?

I would like to state as well that I am older than the general student populace as I am an international student who has been through the military.

    if you're a junior you have a shot at most houses except maybe some of the top houses. if you didn't get into the house the first time, most likely you won't be getting in the second time around at the same house. try the different houses and get a feel for what you like and don't like. a lot of my friends who were juniors this past year got into sigma nu, kappa sig, pikapp, ato, etc.
