Hannah White, a Legacy graduate and Valedictorian of the Class of 2018, was selected into the Early Admission Scholars program at Kansas State University. Established in 1999, the Early Admission Scholars program has recruited the best and brightest undergraduate students who are interested in studying veterinary medicine. Hannah was one of only 31 Kansas State University undergraduate students to be selected as part of this program that will enable her to pursue her dreams of becoming a veterinarian. The College of Veterinary Medicine recognized these students for being selected in its Early Admission Program at an afternoon ceremony Oct. 26 in Trotter Hall.
Upon acceptance in the program, students must complete all of their science prerequisite courses at Kansas State University to be guaranteed admission into the College of Veterinary Medicine.
“The young men and women inducted into the Veterinary Scholars Early Admission Program represent the top 5 percent of Kansas State University students,” said Callie Rost, assistant dean of admissions for the College of Veterinary Medicine. “Being selected for this program, once they meet the requirements, guarantees them a position in the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program, which is a true advantage. We generally receive around 1,100 applications for the 112 seats in the first year class.”
