Do not depend on that to happen. There will be a huge amount of PNMs-let's say 2000. Now, let's say a quarter of them do not have recs- that's 500. And let's say that all 500 look good on paper. They have great gpas, activities, and volunteer experience, are well put together, have sparkling personalities, and are great conversationalists. It is not feasible for the sororities to call around and get recs for all 500. It would be impractical for them to try to get recs for even 20. What will distinguish a handful of PNMs from the 500 rec-less group when all other things are equal so that a sorority would go to all the trouble to try to find an alum from the PNM's hometown who would write her a rec, when they have to break down that day's party, set up for the next day, hold membership selection, eat dinner, fill out reports/invitation lists for Panhellenic? Not to mention that they have 1500 PNMs who do have recs.
I live in Fantasyland and I have waterfront property.

Ah, ok @FSUZeta I understand now!! Thank you! FSU's rush is already at around 1700 I believe, and thats not even counting the girls who are going to sign up last minute in August!
Also, @Titchou thank you for the link!! I found their site a few months ago but I haven't heard anything back from them. I've contacted them twice since then and I still haven't heard anything back. And your comment on keeping an open mind is totally correct! I'm basically trying to hit every sorority on campus for recs and to keep an open mind in every house I step foot in during rush!
go noles!

There's a list of their officers. Try to locate one of them.
