It was a great story but...you can't always "trust the system". Many of us old-timers know dozens of girls who slipped through the cracks, especially at larger schools. They kept on plugging away, they went to all their parties, they had great resumes and reputations, and they ended up bidless.

Not trying to be an aguafiestas, just cautioning PNMs not to throw their whole hearts into the process and believe that some superior recruitment being is watching out for them. Anything can happen, y'all.

I'm glad things worked out for her. I suppose there is a bit of a back story that she doesn't know about.

Cutting an in house legacy is harsh. Owie. I think the message of the story is true though and that almost everyone will end up with a bid if they keep an open mind. A lot of the PNMs who say they end up bidless really dropped out when they didn't like what they had left and that is a big shame!

I don't think I'd have the nerve to cut an in house legacy. Tis harsh indeed.

It happened to a friend's little sister (biological.) Friend had pissed off the girl who became Recruitment Chair, so right after first round baby sister was cut. Baby Sister vowed revenge, and became President of another Chapter just two years later. May I add that baby sister was rich, beautiful. popular, and gorgeous? Sometimes people like that Recruitment Chair shoot themselves in their own foot trying to take it out on others.

The girl would have to be a felon before I'd want to.

As for that Recruitment Chair, well . . . 1) TG she is not my Sister; 2) Some people just weren't raised right if you know what I mean.

When I was active, I saw a couple in-houses be cut from their sister's chapters. All ended up sticking it out with recruitment and being great assets to the chapters they went on to join. I find that it hurts Older Sister's relationship with her chapter far more than Little Sister is hurt by it.

There is a pair that I'm still FB friends with from college. When her sister was cut during my last recruitment, the older sister resigned from her officer position. She is not involved with her organization (locally or otherwise) at all today (this is like, 7 years later) because of it. Meanwhile, younger sister is an active alumna with the org she ended up joining and likely has not given recruitment a second thought since college.

That's what I'm thinking. Or maybe little sister confided to her Mom that she liked DZ but would go APhi because of her sister...

We had an unusual situation in my chapter many moons ago. One of our members had a full bio sister AND a half sister going through recruitment. She very much wanted her half-sister to pledge, but not the full sister. That's exactly how it worked out. I'll admit it felt awkward to some of us extending a bid to one and not the other, but our sister proved right. Her half-sister was such a great fit, but the full sister was better suited elsewhere.
