Just a thought - maybe we need to start a thread on Creating A Recruitment Video.

GREAT idea!
I've been in some Zoom sessions with people who are impeccably dressed with a neutral background, or with a background that gives the viewer some information about the speaker (like bookshelves full of interesting titles or trophies or a favorite stuffed animal or souvenir)
and
I've been in some Zoom sessions with people in their pajamas or Tshirts.
Dress for the job you want... or the sorority.

I have no idea what the OP's daughter's video was like, so I'm not implying anything about what she wore or what her background was, but I think we could all contribute to a thread with tips to help others in the future.

First up, I'm extremely sorry your legacy didn't work out for your daughter. Sharing a sisterhood with your daughter would have been a special thing.

On the other hand, she should begin looking into COB and informal recruitment. Sometimes, a more casual experience can be not only less stressful but can offer a PNM another side of the sisterhood beyond the rules and fluff of formal recruitment. I hope she can find a sisterhood she loves.

I do think you could be right @ace23. I don't think she had both feet in the water and maybe it showed. She is also a very outgoing person but I could see how that might not quite come across in every video. That is why I supported her decision to try again when she was more prepared and could actually get a feel for the houses by meeting them in person. Hopefully, that will happen someday soon. It is also a big decision to make and doing based on one video could be stressful. She actually has already received a couple of offers through COB but has decided to wait till spring or maybe even sophomore year.

I think you could be right. After being a last-minute addition, I don't think she was fully prepared. Hopefully she will try again in Spring or fall.
Thanks.
