Contact the local Alumnae Panhellenic (list can be found at www.npcwomen.org) and they should be able to help you.

I've contacted the alumnae panhellenic asking for contact info like you suggested, but my fear is that I will not have time to get recs (rush is the 12th-18th). I feel like a slacker, but I really only found out about recs when I found this forum (approx. 3 days ago!). So now I am very nervous about not having recs...

I just email the recruitment president and she said that I don't need recs, and that if they are required then the chapter will have to get them themselves. I am still waiting to hear back from the alumnae panhellenic, I am still going to try and get some recs, but I feel alot better now that I know they aren't required. Thank you everyone!

Think about it this way: If the sorority is trying to decide between you and another girl, and everything else between the two of you is equal (gpa, activities, the sisters that rushed both of you both liked you really well) but the other girl already has a rec, and they would have to hunt one down on you, which one do you think they're going to go with?

They may not be absolutely mandatory, but they do help.

Get the recs that you can, and don't stress about the other ones. Just because a rec will help you out, doesn't mean you absolutly can't get in without one, but it also doesn't mean to give up trying to get them because they're not mandatory. That's all I'm trying to say.

Wow!!

I've already gotten a very nice handwritten (!) thank you note for writing a rec!

How soon is too soon to ask about recs? One of my teachers told me she'd get one for me and I didn't even ask her.

are you a senior? I hope, LOL, because if not your teacher is seriously obsessed. But if she volunteered, how nice of her! It's never too early to start collecting recs, that way when it gets closer to rush you can worry about other things, like shoes and clothes. What school will you be attending?

I'm a junior, and she is obsessed! She made us memorize the Greek Alphabet "because we'll need to know it in college". She's still my favorite teacher, and I know I'll need her help.

I'm applying to Mercer, UGA, USC, and Clemson, for sure. I haven't figured out my safety nets yet. Or should I delete those? I see everyone who tells her story uses code names.

I forgot about clothes! My mother is forever saying that "this would be lovely for a Pref Party" or first or second or third rounds! She's funny -- I think she's a tribute to Lily Pulitzer & Anne Klein, lol!
