Wow, you are the awesome. If I have any similar jobs, I know who to call.

She just looks blankly at us and says, "But I'm blonde and petite." Sometimes you've just got let someone do what they want...and be very glad that your sorority is not at her school.
Can you please make a recruitment thread for this girl??? That's one recruitment story I'd love to read!

I don't think there'd be much content.

Round 1: Visited all houses. Was recognized from photos.
Later that night: Phone call.
End of story.

I'd still like to read it! It's kinda like when the car that goes speeding past you ACTUALLY gets pulled over by the police!

Can alumni write negative recs or do we usually just try to concentrate on every PNM's positives attributes? It would be nice knowing who we don’t want in our chapters without having to sacrifice not inviting back other great girls. I know this would probably never ever work but it would be nice.

I know that multiple NPC orgs have a spot on the form for recs to check whether the PNM is recommended. It is totally possible to write a "negative rec" if you check that the PNM is not recommended. Why concentrate on the positive if the PNM is someone you wouldn't want for a sister?

Oh, alumnae write "negative recs" ( a bit of an oxymoron, but you know what I mean). I feel they need to be factual - not just "I don't like her" but "She has had 3 DUI convictions", or "She is already wearing your letters", or "She has made a habit of collecting ritual".Stuff like that . . .

Speaking of which......I'd really like to write a no-rec for the person described above. Though I have a feeling some of my sisters have done this already.

Really? I had no idea! Some people like to look on the bright side of things, personally, I'd rather no the truth.

The Phi Mu rec form is available on the private side of the website. It should answer your question.

Are you all sure enough of all the details that you're really doing this?
