You have to work hard to get into Boone County. Your
application package must be complete before consideration.
You are more apt to get an interview if you send your
information to the principals of the schools you are
interested in. With so many universities in this area, there
are about 300 applications for one opening. I definitely
wouldn't give up my tenure before getting something solid.
Boone County has excellent schools and it's worth the work to
get in, but everyone else feels that way too!
