If you're rushing at A&M, you'll be at a disadvantage with only 1 rec. It's been suggested by those familiar with A&M rush that since rush is so competitive, a PNM should have one rec to each sorority.

Yes ^^^^

I don't know if you are participating TAMU's recruitment. I'm assuming you are since you asked the question about 1 rec in the Aggie thread. You need to go here where I've linked to the list of local alumnae Panhellenic associations. In registering with the local alumanae Panhellenic for your area, they in turn can introduce you to alumnae that can potentially write you a recommendation. It is suggested as optional on TAMU's recruitment website, but I highly recommed securing more than one rec.

I know people are tired of asking about what to wear, but shoes doesn't seem to be a worn out subject. I understand at A&M the second day of rush is farily dressy casual, with an emphasis on the casual. If casual looking heels are comfortable for us, would they still be a no-no?

It all depends on what you choose to wear as dressy casual. It is really encouraged on the second and third days to wear comfortable flat shoes. Most of the girls I've seen on these days are wearing nice "flip flop" style sandals--I'd actually save anything with heels for pref day. You will be hopping on and off the bus to attend each house's activities, which is why flat, comfy shoes are recommended.

Bid day was Friday at Texas A&M. Does anyone know the results of bid day? I have been looking everywhere and cannot find too much information. Irishpipes gave me quota (thanks by they way!!), but I am just wondering how each chapter did.

FYI. after going through recruitment, everyone, "that maximizes their options" get a bid, because one house takes everyone left over!

Wow. That's very Panhellenic of you (note sarcasm). Seriously though, that's rude.

So I guess we all know where you and your one rec pledged.

livingmydreams: I wonder what went on with your recruitment experience to make you feel the need to point that out for us. Care to elaborate?

I have a feeling that the only "house" where she was welcomed was the International House of Pancakes.

(no, this is not a fat joke)
