Class Composition

WCMC seeks to develop a heterogeneous student body by selecting highly qualified applicants from diverse academic, geographic, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds. Many students majored in liberal arts during their undergraduate studies, and many are older students who have had life experiences outside their formal studies.
