Unless I personally know the PNM, I am no longer writing recs. I'm just sending out the link to the PNM introduction letter...

I am still writing them...of course over the last 5 years or so, I seem to write less and less. But I think they are still important. Bigger chapters need them! There is no way for a chapter with 400 members to get to know 1500+PNMs! So Recs are necessary!

Alpha Delta Pi recommendations from alumnae
Alpha Epsilon Phi (does not participate in formal recruitment)
Alpha Omicron Pi recommendations from actives and alumnae.
Chi Omega - recommendations from alumnae.
Delta Delta Delta - recommendations from alumnae.
Delta Gamma - recommendations from alumnae.
Delta Zeta - recommendations from actives and alumnae.
Gamma Phi Beta anyone may write a recommendation; alumnae may recommend.
Kappa Alpha Theta - anyone may write a recommendation; alumnae may recommend.
Kappa Delta - recommendations from actives and alumnae.
Kappa Kappa Gamma recommendations from actives and alumnae.
Pi Beta Phi recommendations from alumnae. May change after convention.
Zeta Tau Alpha recommendations from alumnae.

I *believe* Delta Gamma will take them from alumnae *or* collegians.

Delta Gamma - know at one time my chapter would take them from collegians NOT from their chapter. But that wasn't a Fraternity-wide policy.

A while back we did a limited study on women with 4.0 GPAs out of high school comparing with women with Median ACT scores at that institution. Some of the women who had very good GPA in high school, but modest to lower ACT scores were found to be the ones who struggled staring in college.

We found some correlation that this was more likely to happen to women from private schools but it was not statistically conclusive.

Our conclusions had to do with that women who had taken the time to prepare and study for entrance exams were more likely to be prepared or have study skills needed to make the transition to college. The best way to deal with this was to give everyone study skills information and time management recommendations at the beginning of the school year.

WOW, HQWest, that is the kind of diagnostic analysis that I geek out over. I'm glad the data was used to identify an area where women would benefit from support, and then support was provided for a stronger experience both as a student and as a member.

A very good explanation for this is grade inflation, including situations where teachers are forced to inflate grades. It has happened to almost every long-time teacher I know.
