The computer program is set up to try and match the PNM with first choice, but it moves on if #1 isn't available. So as much as you may "want your choice" of Theta, you're not going to get it.
It seems like some of y'all may not be following Splash's example.

“For sure” here does not mean “we want her after and only if we do not get the other girls ranked above her first”. “For sure” means they want her absolutely and will do what they can to maximize the chapter’s possibility of her receiving a bid from them. The only way I know that a chapter could maximize that option/possibility is to put the PNM on the chapter's first bid list and hope she has them ranked first.

So to use the above example, if the PNM ranked Theta #1 and Kappa #2, and both chapters want her "for sure”, then the PNM will be on both chapters' 1st bid list. Thus the PNM will receive a bid from her first choice, in this example, Theta.
