I've got one for Oklahoma State University and three for the University of Alabama. I'm unsure about the one since the one young lady has yet to get back to me about some of the information needed. If she doesn't get back to me soon, then I'll only be sending in 2 Alabama recommendations.

*Side note: Ladies, please respond to the Alumnae who you are asking to write you recommendations. Also, please include a salutation when you ask for recommendations. It is rude to just attach some documents and not give any explanation. It is important to address the Alumnae properly, as well.

Fraternity rush is wholly different than sorority rush. The rules and expectations are completely different from fraternity to fraternity and from campus to campus. My guess is nobody is going to tell you grades don't matter, even if there are chapters where that is true.

Xister, I only have one this year--Georgia Tech. I met a mom of a daughter going through rush at Auburn and offered to write a rec and gave my info, but never heard from her. Her daughter is a Sigma Kappa there and the mom had been a Pi Phi, but apparently this daughter is determined not to join either one. lol

My cousin is going through at USC (California).
Glad that I was able to help her with ideas and sources to look for Recs and she's secured a Rec for each house. She's looking forward to recruitment!

My daughter is Rushing this Fall

She will be going through as a sophomore transfer to a Pac 12 school. She has recs for 7 of the houses, I think there are 10. She is very excited and going in with 100% open mind. She told me she is looking to find sisters, not be popular.

May not be writing a rec after all since the girl who asked me feels it's okay not to respond with the additional information I requested.

That's when you write a No Rec for a young woman who can't find the time to respond to you as an alumna doing her a favor.

I wanted to update to share the number of overall recs I have written this year. I've written a total of 7.
*Alabama (5)
*Auburn (1)
*Oklahoma State University (1)

I wouldn;t consider that a "no" rec level. However, I've been doing this long enough to know how to write a "you do not want this girl because" rec. No recs don't list the reason - other than to say call for details. I'd send it in but tell them she never responded to XXX questions and so I'm just doing an info only one.

The questions she didn't send me a response to were the ones regarding her GPA. Her activities look good, but if she won't say her GPA cause it's not so hot, she's gonna have bigger problems in an SEC recruitment.

I'd just put n/a for GPA and let the chapter deal with it. I don't ever consider a GPA issue as a "no." I think that's a chapter specific decision and I let them deal with it. Most get the PNM's university accepted GPA anyway. So they have the official one.
