COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE SELECTS EARLY ADMISSION SCHOLARS

MANHATTAN -- Seventeen pre-veterinary students have been selected as Early Admission Scholars by the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University.

Since it was established in 1999, the college's Early Admission Scholars program has recruited undergraduate students who excelled on the ACT or SAT and who want to study veterinary medicine, according to Ronnie Elmore, associate dean for admissions and diversity. The scholars are guaranteed admission into the College of Veterinary Medicine after completing three of four years of undergraduate college courses at K-State, including the college's 64 hours of pre-professional requirements. Successful candidates must maintain a 3.4 grade point average while taking the pre-professional requirements.

The college assigns each scholar a veterinary student mentor for career and academic development. The mentors also provide orientation and access to college activities. The scholars attend regular meetings during the academic year to develop a sense of community and to share their progress.

The 2010-2011 Early Admission Scholars include:

Hillary Schartz, freshman in animal sciences and industry, Claflin.

From Greater Kansas City: Shelby Langtry, freshman in animal sciences and industry, Leawood; Hillary Martin, sophomore in animal sciences and industry, Lenexa; Annika Sundby, freshman in animal sciences and industry, and Stephanie Skinner, sophomore in animal sciences and industry, both from Olathe; Madeline Anderson, freshman in animal sciences and industry, Hillary Henslee, freshman in animal sciences and industry, and Tanner Slead, freshman in animal sciences and industry, all from Overland Park; Kaitlin Foley, sophomore in animal sciences and industry, and Amber Smith, freshman in fisheries, wildlife and conservation biology, both from Shawnee; and Hallie Patton, freshman in animal sciences and industry, Stilwell.
