Should I rush again?
 
So I'm a junior in college at a small school and my school hasn't had sorority rush week yet. My first time rushing I had to drop for medical reasons. My second time rushing, I just didn't get a bid. This would be my third time rushing. Should I try again? Or should I give up?

I joined my chapter as a junior (I had transferred schools). You'll never know if you don't try. I've seen stories on this site of girls who went through and had a bad rush and then go back and have a successful one. Is rush there very competitive? Can you grab some recs at the last moment? How are your grades? Plan your outfits, practice some conversation, look polished (not saying you aren't already). Recruitment is all about first impressions, a lot like a job interview.

As we have responded to others who've asked this question (or a variation of same) (1) if you don't rush, you definitely won't get a bid (2) we honestly don't know whether you should or shouldn't try. Only you can answer that question.

There are many threads here about re-rushing, with both successful and unsuccessful outcomes. The strongest advice I've seen given includes analyzing what went wrong, and realistically assessing how you have or haven't changed so as to change the outcome of your recruitment.

Your statement about your second recruitment ("I just didn't get a bid") is intriguing. Can you elaborate?

Agree with AZTheta about being intrigued by your statement that your rush last year being unsuccessful. It's very important to look at why it was and then "course correct". And if you are at a highly compatible Greek system then it's important to realize that the odds of a bid as a junior are reduced.

Have you considered what factors contributed to not receiving a bid?
