I was a new immigrant who knew nothing about Wellesley before I went to Wellesley (move to US from China in 1985, class of 92). My high school counselor and other teachers have highly recommended me to apply, and the Wellesley experience has opened up a whole new world for me. The Wellesley spirit has always been with me no matter of what I do: a professional Actuary, company executive, or housewife. The school friends are valuable as well.
