All depends...you'd need to talk with your recruitment counselor or the Greek Adviser about your particular case. Often women who are in band or dance line, etc have to miss part of recruitment and they generally make concessions of some sort.

That depends on the campus and the night. You need to talk to your recruitment counselors immediately. They will be able to advise you. You should not miss a night of recruitment unless you have a very good reason...like you're on an athletic team, in a show, in a wedding, etc.

one girl here, on another thread, noted that she got an ok from her professor to sit in on another class to make up the time she was missing. That's nice of the professor, and worth a shot if your problem is class.

^unfortunately, that won't fly. i have a biology lab and we are absolutely not allowed to make it up. ever. you can write a report for points but only with a valid doctor's note. i'm not allowed to go into another lab session, either. so it's either go or miss all those points. it would just affect my grade WAY too much to skip it.

my rho gamma will let the two sororities i can't make know i have an excuse, but i have to miss one of my favorite sororities, so i'm really stressed out. basically... i'm trying to work out if i'm going to get cut because i'm not there. there's really nothing i can do but it'd be good to kind of know what's coming, you know?

Whether it will be a problem or not depends on the school and the chapters. So stop worrying about that for now. There's really nothing you can do. If you can't miss the lab and it will effect your grade you're making the right choice to go to class. You might consider telling these two chapters you will have to miss the next night because your biology teacher is so strict and you are very motivated to make good grades, but you're really upset you have to miss the parties. This will let them know you're interested and that you are careful with your grades, which is certainly a plus.

We don't know if you're going to get cut.

Every chapter handles that differently.

Your Rho Chi can only tell the chapters you're going to be absent and why.

She can't keep them from cutting you if they choose to do that.

They may, they may not. There isn't anything you can do about it. So I wouldn't worry about it too much.

I'm curious - when is Recruitment and how far away is this particular day in question? Is it the first day? I ask because it appears that you already know in which order you'll be visiting each chapter (you said that you'll miss one of your "favorites"). Is it common to know the order before recruitment even starts?

But did you not realize going into recruitment that you were going to miss part of tonight? It really sounds like you were just hoping to end up with chapters that you didn't want and it wouldn't be a big deal to miss, but now that you have a group there that you like, you're panicked. You're at the age now where people start expecting you to plan ahead. Sounds like you just got Lesson #1 in this...and it was a hard one.

i told my rho gamma from the beginning that i was going to be missing part of tonight, and i was told that that was fine. i assumed that i would just be visiting my top two, not two random out of my top four. this isn't my failure to plan ahead. my understanding was that i would be able to visit my top choices - since i just found out that's not how it works, i was hoping for advice.

Sure, you'll visit your top 2 favorites in that spot, if they choose to invite you back. There's really no telling which chapters will be in that spot you're going to be missing. It all depends on where you get invited to.

From an NPC perspective, it is fine. It won't be counted against you as if you dropped out of recruitment. Will it affect your outcome? That's the question that you wanted them to answer - which, by the way, they can't. Mostly likely, it will. And you might have had the wrong impression about how rush works, but that's still on you, not them.

The thing is, we don't actually KNOW if it's going to be a big deal.

Every chapter is different.

Some chapters cut girls right away for missing their party (no matter the reason). They have cuts to make and the easy cut to make is the girl who was absent.

Then there are others who will invite someone back if they missed.

We have no way of knowing what a chapter is going to do.
