Things may be a lot different now, but I joined after having gotten my AA. Also, ask some of your old high school teachers, female professors from your CC for recs. As others have said, you may know many Greek women but didn't realize it.

Best of luck to you and let us know how it works out!!

It’ll be a competitive rush. Many of the top rushing chapters at UCF only take juniors if there is an extenuating circumstance - the PNM is friends with girls I’m the chapter, has a great GPA, etc. Even with those attributes, cuts are still harsh for juniors since UCF doesn’t have an upperclassman quota. Go in with an open mind.

My sorority will consider a little bit lower grade for college since...it's college-level courses. And UCF strikes me as a shade more like an urban university, with a slightly more non-traditional student body (older average student, more likely to be working full time).
All that means is there's a chance of a chance!
So...this chance won't come around again. What have you got to lose?
Get your recs and go for it!!

If this is something you really want - then go for it.

As others have written, it's important to know that your opportunities will be limited; that said, I've known girls (at competitive schools) who have received bids as upperclassman. They were realistic about their chances, kept an upbeat attitude, went in fully prepared (recs, etc.), were open to every house, didn't listen to "tent talk" where houses get put down, and they "hung in there" even if they only had a few houses left as the week went on. They knew how to have good conversations so they could present themselves well. Study every sorority's philanthropy so you can ask good questions and see which philanthropies might be something you have a connection with.

Going for something you desire while being realistic is a terrific predictor of how to navigate life because I promise you, this won't be the first thing you're interested in that might present great challenges to achieve.

And if by some chance it doesn't work out, then you will have experienced new things and learned more about yourself than if you had not pursued it. I hope you rush and come back and update here. I'm rooting for you.
