Veterinarian Ralph Richardson, dean of Kansas State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, explains the factors behind the school's growing number of out-of-state students. The school designates 45 spots in the incoming class for Kansas residents, down from 50 since 2000, and Kansas residents made up 48.6% of the school in 2008 and 39.7% in 2012, Dr. Richardson said. A shrinking number of in-state applicants and lower entrance exam scores contribute to the decrease. The school also has programs guaranteeing some seats for students from particular parts of the country and the world, such as China.
