I get that some girls decide at the last minute, maybe they see all their friends getting ready and change their minds, whatever. But if they're asking for last minute recs, the least they can do is send the things you need to write them.

I called this pmn and asked what she had done to get ready for recruitment. "Bought some really cute clothes" was the answer. She hasn't worked on recs and such because she heard at orientation that they aren't a big deal. SMH

Oh, so true! So many of my friends are hearing this from moms of PNMs! Here was the crown jewel that someone heard last week: "We aren't bothering with getting recs to ABC, they were awful at our twins' campus and I'm sure they're the same at our youngest daughter's school."

And these are the same mothers who rant about how their special snowflake was the victim of computer malfunction/jealousy/you name it and didn't get into the "best" chapter. *geez*

We're finding a lot of these late registrants came to spring preview and think they're already registered.

And then there's one who said she was waiting for all her recs to come back.

Since Philanthropy and Skit are two days, do the girls get the invites back for all parties for that round at the same time - with some parties being the following day - or do they have to wait until the second day of each round to see who they might be going to that day?

I haven't heard of that being done. At the schools I am familiar with, you usually get your invites for a round on the first day of that round. (But I'm not a Bama person.)

Yes, they get their entire round at one time. So they know all their returns at the same time.

Hey!

Do you guys know the numbers of underclassmen and upperclassmen signed up so far? I'm rushing as a sophomore, so I was just curious to see how many fellow UC I might come across in my Rho Chi group I'm so excited!
