    I think my favorite part is this:

    (1) recruit quality student-
    athletes to an institution with high admission and academic standards

    Really, a school that will guarantee admission to in-state students with a certain ACT or SAT score doesn't have high academic standards.


    Responsible to the Director of Athletics for the planning and
    management of an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-
    A) program. Duties include the following: (1) recruit quality student-
    athletes to an institution with high admission and academic standards;
    (2) develop and oversee all coaching activities including pre-season, in-
    season and off-season programs; (3) supervise, evaluate and provide
    leadership to assistant coaches and staff; (4) display a strong
    commitment to diversity in staffing and recruiting; (5) assist in the
    development of student-athletes as productive and responsible adults
    who complete degree requirements; (6) administer all facets of the
    football program including budget oversight; (7) comply fully with all
    rules and regulations of Colorado State University, the Mountain West
    Conference and the NCAA; (8) assist with fund raising and promotional
    efforts as required and assume a strong leadership role in the
    department's community outreach and public relations programs; and
    (9) perform other duties as required by the Director of Athletics.
    Applicants are required to submit a complete resume and list of
    references to Mr. Paul Kowalczyk, Director of Athletics, Colorado State
    University, Fort Collins, CO 80523-0120.

    Position will be filled as soon as possible. Applications will be accepted
    until the position is filled. For full consideration, application materials
    should be received in the Athletic Department no later than 5:00 p.m.
    (MT) on Monday, December 10, 2007. Applications may be faxed to
    970-491-3226 or sent via e-mail to karen.taylor@colostate.edu. CSU is
    an EEO/AA employer.

    NOTES: Administrative Professional position reporting to the Director of
    Athletics; salary commensurate with experience and qualifications; full
    University benefits.

    Hate to tell you this, but the admissions standards at CU and CSU are pretty similar.

    I just sent them my application. I coached an 8th grade team the last 2 years in the AYL, we lost in the semis this year, but won the super bowl last year. I think i'm qualified

    I was talking about the flagship campuses with my original post. When I applied to schools, the indecies (number derived from GPA and standardized test scores) for CU and CSU were very close.

    It's weird, anyone with a pulse can get into CU-Springs or CU-Denver, but Boulder has very high admission standards. My dad is a dean down at CU-Denver, I was looking at MBA programs, CU-Denver requires a 200 on the GMAT to get in, just ludicrous! Most school are around 600.

    Sounds like things have changed since I was applying. When I was looking back in '95 it wasn't HUGE, but there was quite a disparity between the two.

    Where is the stipulation that the successful candidate must be willing to wear ugly green and yellow attire on the side line?

    CU-Boulder and CSU have very similar admission standards. While some schools like the Business School and the Engineering School might have very high standards, the school overall has very similar admission standards to CSU.

    CU-Boulder should have raised standards a long time ago, but it doesn't appear to be a priority up there.

    I believe the diploma doesn't designate the campus either. In other words, a CUCS grad has the same diploma hanging on his wall as I do.

    Absolutely correct. My CU-Denver diploma does not contain any reference whatsoever to Denver, it only says The University of Colorado.

    I had to pay more for my student tickets though, does that make it up to anybody? :huh:

    That's because CU-Denver focuses on adult higher education, not straight-outta-high-school.

    I saw that ad in the free Nickle Ads you get in front of the grocery store. Is csu so far off the radar that they really need to post an employment ad? Small time, baby! At least sunny knew it. Its time that the fans caught on.

    State agencies and institutions are required by law to publicly post job announcements.

    CU recently posted its announcement for a new prez in several publications.

    It appears they left a couple of requirements off the list, so I took the liberty of adding a couple.:thumbsup:

    I think the major difference is admission to the CU Biz School (LEEDs) and Engineering. Otherwise, general admission is quite similar. Both schools have other campuses in Csprings and Pueblo that might have lower admissions, but overall its a personality thing... and what they want to study.

    Some kids respond to Boulder, some to Fort Collins...

    Some want to be Architects, some Vets...

    You're an employer with two good resumes in front of you. You want a process engineer to do P&D for a pharmaceutical company from out of state.

    One applicant has a CSU chemical engineering degree

    One applicant has a CU chemical engineering degree.

    Otherwise both resumes are similar in experience and qualifications.

    Which one do you pick?

    I was the one that got picked over the CSU applicant :)

    Not saying that CSU doesn't have its laurels as a public university. Both universities have different strengths. All I'm saying is that I'd prefer to drive over a bridge designed by CU engineer :p

    I would take my dog with worms to get treated by a CSU vet grad.

    /just saying

    You're more qualified than sunny. In fact, you're over-qualified since you coached in a super bowl against a team not clad in gold and black.:smile2:

    Do you know the LEEDs admission requirements? CSU's biz school is pretty tough to get in to as well, just curious how they compare.

    hmmm...

    I can ask my daughter on the ACT/SAT part, but the High School GPA is 3.7 or above. The intra/inter college transfer (say from liberal arts to Leeds is 3.7 or from another school to CU is 3.7)... its pretty tough. I went to a 'be a CU student for day' with my daughter and the professors giving the tour we're basically straight up telling parents and students, 'if you don't have a 3.7 AND a 26 on your ACT you chances are slim at best; apply to liberal arts and transfer to Leeds'... they were brutal. .. supply and demand... they have a ton of demand and can be quite restrictive on who they accept

    here's the scoop. the AVERAGE incoming freshmen have 26 ACT, 1200 SAT and rank in the top 20% of the incoming freshmen...

    for more on all criteria go here: http://www.colorado.edu/prospective/freshman/admission/qualifications.html

    btw: CSU has a very fine biz school

    Incorrect. According to CollegeBoard (2007): CU in-state 59% vs. CSU in-state 80%. CU-71% incoming freshmen had HS GPA 3.5 or higher vs. CSU 51% 3.5 or higher. CU-10% 2.0-2.9 GPA vs. CSU 26% 2.0-2.9 GPA.

    Also, I know from experience because I had two brother who ended up at CSU because they didn't get into CU-boulder:lol:

    Those stats have nothing to do with admission standards tho. They are just a snapshot of the student body. CU's admissions are a bit tougher. But the point here is that it is no Ivy league school in this regard like alot of people portray it, the OP in this thread for example.
