Good news. We picked up a large number of women through COB immediately following fall formal, by reaching out to women who didn't like the process/had to drop because of schedule conflicts or who missed the initial deadline. We're so happy, our class is now comparable in size to the others on our campus and there isn't a single woman who we've bidded that we don't like, or who completely doesn't want to be in our chapter. Our advisor cried when we confirmed the final number of COB because she was so happy for us. Forcing us to take whoever came through because of numbers did nothing for our sisterhood for like half a decade and drove us to the lowest retention at our school and the lowest retention in our organization as a whole (which was super sad because we're a single letter chapter with a beautiful historic house, not alpha but pretty close). So here's to a turn around hopefully, fingers crossed.
