If you are a high school senior this year applying for colleges in the midwest it is important to apply early. You can qualify for the Midwest Student exchange program which will give you in state tuition if you live in the midwest and attend another midwest school (depending on your major though music is one of the majors that qualifies). For KU the deadline is Nov 1st but I would imagine it varies for each school. It just makes me sad when students who qualify miss this opportunity! Apply early!!
