    For those on this thread wandering about how to get in-state undergraduate tuition at K-State, this scholarship accomplishes that with the fixed annual amount:
    Purple and White Scholarship for non-Kansas residents-
    $48,000 renewable four-year scholarship. Awarded to out-of-state graduating seniors with a minimum 3.5 high school GPA and 24 ACT (1160 SAT, taken March 2016 or after). Eligible students receive $12,000 per year. Renewable for up to 3 additional years with a 3.5 K-State GPA.

    ^^ My son has that, an alumni scholarship(we are not alumni) and an ag department scholarship so it is very affordable even though we are OOS. He did get accepted ti the early acceptance program in his Sr. year. It is an unwritten option but is available on request. Normally they accept in late Sept early Oct. He is a Freshman there now and is loving it!

    Hi Kikidee9........yes, our daughter was accepted into the Purdue Veterinary Scholars program. In August she started her freshman year at Purdue. Looking back, I think the things that helped her get in were:

    -a strong HS background in math and science with lots of AP and honor's classes.
    -a very good GPA
    -doing well on the ACT (34). She did a tutoring class through Huntington Learning Centers and I'm convinced that helped her do as well as she did. Her PSAT score also went up significantly after the time at Huntington (did the class between soph and jr year) and she ended up being a National Merit Scholar.
    -having alot of animal experience (especially the time working in a veterinary clinic). She also volounteered at a local humane society and a theraputic riding center.

    I hope this info is helpful. I'm happy to answer any questions you have.
