Exclamation rushing for the second time...

hey ladies (and maybe gentlemen):
i have an odd problem. i am going to be a sophmore in the fall and i plan to rush again. YES, you heard that right...AGAIN. formal rush last fall was my way of seeing if i belonged in a sorority. but it was a flop! and i didn't do too bad but i was cut two days before bid day, so i was a little heartbroken. but i am going to take a greek friend's advice and try again. so tell me, what should i do and how should i make my moves the 2nd time around? (other than being myself)

There are some threads in the recruitment forum about re-rushing. Though I'm not NPC or an Alabama alum, I say go for it with no regrets. And please enjoy your chapter colony experience. It's a once in a lifetime thing. You're lucky to have that.

Ask yourself: what is different about me/my situation THIS TIME AROUND that would make things turn out differently?

well i didn't know anything about the groups before and i kept putting myself beneath them. i thought they all had money and more chances. and being a first generation college student, i didnt feel like i measured up. but now that i know a good bit of them and i know that isn't the case. i was so wrong! so now i am more relaxed, knowledgeable about who they are/and do and i have more confidence (i know my spelling is bad forgive me!). so i think i have all that working for me now.

There's a thread on the Recruitment Stories forum about Strawberry Gloss's repeat recruitment; it's stickied and it's near the top. She gave some great insights at the end of it about why her second recruitment was successful.

There are also lots of threads about good conversation topics, gorgeous dresses, etc. in the sorority recruitment forum!

Does the campus community in general understand what SAI is for? Are there members of SAI that are also members of NPC sororities? Or have the current colony members tried to make the SAI chapter as "social" as possible and frown on dual membership? You may have to choose one or the other.

That campus would be fine with dual membership.

But didn't you just find out in this thread that they had an SAI colony? From what I've read on here, every SAI chapter is different as far as what I mentioned is concerned.

It is, but I now know that the colony has several members who are NPCs. I know the campus well.
