You're lucky I found this because I'm probably the best person on this website to answer this question lol.
Anyways, I just finished my senior year at a very big college, was in a fraternity (don't call it frat btw, you don't call your country a c*nt do you?) and also took accutane (40mg a day) for 5 months while in the fraternity during my junior year.
First things first, rushing during your freshman fall is an unforgettable experience, however, pledging is serious and although me or you don't know what that will exactly entail, it will probably involve a lot of drinking (voluntary and involuntary) and strenuous physical activity. You do NOT want to be on accutane while pledging a fraternity, take that to the bank.
Now the truth is, I drank pretty heavily while on accutane, around 4 days a week, anywhere from 3-20something drinks (obviously blackout status) for a couple months. My blood tests came out perfect every time. I'm not condoning you to drink, I'm just telling you the truth.
However, every person's body is different and their livers react in different ways however and my case will definitely not be the case for everybody and if I were you I would not take the chance if you decide to join a fraternity in the fall.
My two cents after making my own mistakes in college: Start accutane ASAP. Don't rush in the fall, get your things in order and get done with accutane so you can rush in the spring with confidence. Rushing in the spring is no harder than fall, the only difference is that you are more closely looked at. It's even possible that rushing in the spring is slightly easier considering not many kids rush in spring and fraternities still want a decent sized pledge class. Freshman fall is a great experience with a fraternity but not being in one does not mean you will not have a good time, if anything you could branch out a little and later on in your college career you can have your brothers and other friends you made during freshman fall (its good to diversify). It's only one semester to wait and waiting to rush could potentially benefit you far greater than rushing in the fall with little confidence and reassurance, as well as potentially affecting the actual fraternity you will join.
That's about it. I don't usually comment on other people's threads but I really felt the need to help you out a little on this one, hopefully I have.
