Fraternities are selective. Most people do end up getting bids though if they find a good fit and rush well. Most importantly is know where you need to be. Move in and start rush. Don't get too drunk and it will all pay off.
The frats are typical southern frats. Awesome and tons of fun!
They are really prevalent on campus, but they tend to be kind of jerks to non-Greek people (especially guys). Tend to be very exclusive regarding letting non-frat guys into parties and such compared to other colleges.
I don't go to UNC (applying to transfer for 2nd year) so I can't tell you all the details about the sororities but in regards to the last question: my dad is in a frat and I'm interested in joining a sorority so he told me that the best way to figure out which sorority is right for me is to just attend events they hold for people interested so that I can kind of get a feel for what the sorority is like.

Carolina has a large Greek life scene, although it isn't for everyone. If you have decided to go the Greek route, prepare in advance for rush and your pledging semester because it can be quite tough to manage that and taking on the rigor of academics all at once. UNC has many traditional fraternities and sororites, as well as ethnic and multiculural sororties and fraternites. For those who are looking to just party as part of the Greek system, be aware that it doesn't quite work like that. Instead, students have to do community service, maintain GPAs, be recruited, and do many other activites benefiting the community.
Although at times it seems like most of the student body is Greek, in reality it is only about 12 percent. If you choose not to go Greek, there are plenty of ways to meet people, and it doesn't limit your attendance at parties thrown by the Greeks. Either way, there is a home for every student at Carolina, Greek or not.
