Whether or not her recruitment guides (advisors) mis-informed her, it's very likely, if not almost guaranteed that they explained exactly what she was signing before she signed it. I volunteer for preference round to explain MRABA and submit preference rankings - the volunteers are trained on what to say and how to answer questions, as well as asking questions if a PNM seems to eager to just sign and not look at the MRABA. Because of this I think your daughter might have a hard time arguing that she didn't understand that COB wasn't an option after she signed. Having also attended a smaller campus with deferred recruitment, I would fully prepare your daughter for the fallout that might come from her quitting because she didn't get her top house (because it will likely be perceived that way no matter how it's spun). I'm not saying it's impossible, but many comments above are correct, deferred recruitment is an entirely different beast, knowing sorority women ahead of time is both a blessing and a curse.
