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