The chapter says they will not request a rec on somebody with less than their grade threshold. Sometimes that works....sometimes it doesn't.
It'll change - it always does.
Last year they were shielding addresses...this year, it's out there.
Go figure!

Well....I am from Arkansas. I said something about how we do it in the South, and the upstate NY folks told me that Arkansas is in the Midwest.......news to me.

Well what would they know about it! Arkansas seceded from the Union and joined the Confederate States of America. So don't see how you could consider them not part of the South.

In a case where the chapter has the information from ICS or whatever system they are using and the women have already been vetted by the Greek office, their grades can't change.

Early to mid summer makes sense, but when someone was talking about A Day, I was thrown. You couldn't even have a girl's final grades by then.

That just confirms most of my suspicions about New York!

I guess I need to introduce myself to an Alpha Gam adviser to ask if they'd rather have incomplete RIFs early or complete RIFS later.

I'm sure I could do better getting them in complete as well.

Good luck this year, Alabama advisers!

I don't know about other advisers but I always rely on the PH reported GPA rather than the one from the PNM.

That's the best source, but understand some schools are withholding GPA's!

OK, should have qualified and added "when we get them." But I would think it would be understood that if you don't get it from PH, then you have to accept whatever you have.
