Ours was a scantron.

Everywhere I have worked with since 2010 has physically entered straight into ICS/CampusDirector.

Where I volunteer the PMNs enter their choices into the computer (ICS) AND write their selections on the MRABA form.

1. Regretting the ranking order that she actually did choose and trying to wiggle out of it to get into the other chapter
2. Trying to save face with friends of hers in the chapter. "I put you first but got my second choice" so that she wouldn't have to admit that she didn't want to choose their chapter.

I am skeptical about computer error with matching. If the name was outside the first bid list there may be a minuscule chance of it getting flubbed, but I just don't see how that can happen when you fall within the first bid list.
I am thinking there was either an error with the data entry, but something the Greek Life Coordinator said was that the software wasn't working right...It is entirely possible that "Jane" is lying (I don't know her well enough to say one way or the other). What I do know is that she has been going up to members of "B" and asking why we didn't want her. I'm hoping that she isn't just trying to stir up trouble, but who should I reach out to?

Jane ought to be focusing on getting to know the girls in A and not pestering the girls in B. Recruitment is now a thing of the past for her.

Do/did you want her? If so, ask the GL coordinator to look further into this software issue. I would also ask the GLC if any other rushees have had issues, and if Jane is the only one, she most likely is a liar with pants on fire.

If not, all you or your sisters have to say is "I'm sorry, but we can't discuss membership selection. I hope you have fun in A."

This is going to sound horrible, but 99.9% of those "computer glitch" stories are lies.

My favorite computer glitch story I ever heard was when I was a collegian. A girl was like "I would have been an XY, but the computer accidentally skipped all the names of girls starting with M."

WHAT.

My recruitment actually had a glitch, and you know what? THEY WENT BACK AND FIXED IT. Nobody is going to say, "oops, computer glitch, you are all SOL!"

This. The people running Recruitment go back and fix the computer glitch. Even if everything has to be checked by hand and re-entered.

This. Between advising and my full time job working with recruitment, I've probably been to about 100 or so recruitments. I have only ever seen one true computer issue (a chapter had a girl on their first bid list, didn't match quota, and yet this girl didn't get placed. We of course caught that immediately upon receiving bid lists) 99% of the time it isn't a computer issue, and if it is, they'd fix.

99% of the time the young woman isn't telling the truth. That being said I didn't see if we've ever heard back from OP. With only 3 chapters, if they are small enough, are they using ICS? Human error with hand bid matching is much more likely in my experience.

They might be 3 quite large chapters with a large amount of women rushing. The OP said they are using software rather than hand matching.
