    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!
