My GPA is .04 too low to rush based on the requirements. Can exceptions be made?

Even if an exception was made for you, most sororities usually have a higher GPA requirement than the university. Work on your grades, then sign up for Recruitment - you'll encounter much less heartache.

honeychile pretty much summed it up. Even if there was an exception, which there isn't, most sororities have higher grade requirements than the minimum set by Panhellenic.

Given your shaky academic past, is adding the time demand of a sorority really wise? This is something only you can answer, but please keep in mind that you are in college for primarily academic reasons, and it is not worth risking your borderline GPA just to be greek.

That said, an exception likely will not be made, but we cannot tell you definitively. Contact the local group, the greek office at your school, or both. We do not have answers regarding specific practices on your campus.

Why bother coming here and asking a question and then argue with everyone who gives you an answer that you don't like??

You have been answered based on our experience. If you know better that the women here and can get a local sorority with lower standards to accept you, go for it.

That would be totally up to the professor, and your ability to talk yourself out of a hole.
