The thing that sold me on WMU for exercise science was how they split the program into focuses. Other schools had one-track degrees that did not set you up for anything specific. WMU, however, created different pathways within the degree that better sets the student up for success post-graduation, whether going straight into the workforce or pursuing a higher degree. Personally, I am on the pre-professional/clinical pathway which allows me to cover any prerequisite classes I will need for a graduate program.
