Is this normal???Im clueless.

I contacted the president of the Alumnae Panhellenic chapter, which is really large in in my hometown, for recs. She asked me for my resume and pic and I sent it to her. Well, they had this huge meeting this one weekend and she said that my resume and pic was sent out for with most of the chapters that I listed at my school. I asked her if I should expect a call or something, I'm thinking these women might want to meet me. But she said that they probably wont contact me and that they would just send the rec to the chapter. Is this normal at all. I sent my resume to one person and i have no idea who got it and if they really wrote the rec or not.

That is what is done in my neck of the woods. High school senior girls submit a resume and pictures to the local Panhellenic. They distribute it the the various local sorority alumnae chapters, who then write up the recommendations. You may be contacted, or not.

I think what you describe is completely normal. Some of the people who got your information will contact you; others will write the rec without it, and still others will find someone they know who knows you personally.

Sadly, as with any request for a recommendation, you won't really know if they sent it or not, but most sorority women aren't going to volunteer to write the recs and then not do it, I don't think.

Certainly, you could continue to find women that personally know you who are sorority alumnae who can send additional recs too.
