LOL. whatever. I'd love to hear your definition. Did you even see where I said if you made the definition 50% of degrees granted there'd still be only one other D1 STEM school other than us?Eh...sorry, just because you arbitrarily designate some percentage (which favors your POV) doesn't mean the rest of the world needs to follow it. I'm going with the more respected US News (who BTW GT uses for marketing purposes when they recruit) for their designation of STEM universities.
As for the rest of your post, I don't disagree with it, it just doesn't have anything to do with my OP. Yes it's harder at GT (which I've stated already), but you either find a way to overcome them (as Stanford and Duke have) or you fold your tent and play somewhere else. College sports isn't fair, like the real world...not everyone is on the same playing field. It sucks, but is sucks more to complain about it and not do anything to improve the situation.
Luckily, AD Bobinski isn't one to complain and he's giving CPJ tools to level the playing field. CPJ has hired some coaches that are better recruiters than the ones that left, he's increased the recruiting personnel, and we're more active on social media getting our message out and controlling the narrative...all of which were big issues when CPJ first got here. We're seeing the impact of all of that now with better commits this recruiting cycle. It's harder getting the kids GT needs, but IT CAN BE DONE...and we're seeing it first hand now.
