Didn't we have a thread on here about which relationships each NPC sorority regards as legacy relationships?

Alpha Xi Delta: grandmother, step-grandmother, mother, step-mother, aunt, sister, step-sister, half-sister

Chi Omega: mother, sister

Delta Delta Delta: mother, step-mother, sister, step-sister

Delta Gamma: great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister. Includes step and half relatives.

Kappa Alpha Theta: great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, sister. Step relatives of the member considers the pnm to be a legacy.

Kappa Delta: grandmother, mother, sister. Step and half relatives if the member considers the pnm to be a legacy.

A long-time family friend was recently very delighted to have her granddaughter join a different chapter (at a southern school) of the same sorority she had 60 years ago. Even though grandchildren are no longer considered legacies in that NPC group, the fact they were related within the fraternal bond was happily noted on the chapter's online newsletter when the granddaughter initiated. None of this family friend's daughters or other granddaughters had joined her sorority; she still has one more granddaughter in high school.

Many chapters value "special relatives" very much; they just aren't guaranteed the benefits of being a legacy, whether that's a guafanteed spot on the first bid list or a courtesy call to the relative before the legacy is released. Our God-daughter pledged a house at UT last year where she was not a legacy, but where her three cousins had all pledged in recent years. The chapter recognized her special family connection even though she was not a technical legacy.

Legacy thread

http://www.greekchat.com/gcforums/sh...ad.php?t=18486

This seems to have a good number, but not boiled down into one posting as above.

You forgot one of the NPC Chapters at UT Austin and it's legacy policy in your list. As Alpha Phi also has an active chapter there. Alpha Phi's legacy policy considers any granddaughter, great-granddaughter, daughter, stepdaughter, sister or stepsister.

Does it matter if letters of rec are sent in piece meal? Or should we send them in all together? My niece has started the process and it's really slow going.

You don't send them at all. The alumnae writing the recs send them in, following the process for their organization.

Well this would explain not getting much back after sending 5 requests. We did get one recommendation sent to us but from what you're telling me, it should not have been. Should I forward to the chapter or headquarters?

Does your niece have a Panhellenic alumnae group in her area to help her navigate the process? Most recommendations are sent directly to the chapter, and many now prefer electronic forms submitted online. I suggest you read the "recruitment" section of the website for each of the chapters at UT.

Will have to check on the alumnae group. I imagine not getting recommendations back thus far is an indication that they are being sent as they should be. I was concerned!

When I went through rush, I was told not to worry about letters, which made it easy.

Yes, be sure she sends thank you letters soon... it's a nice, gentle reminder in case they haven't sent their rec in yet.
