Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
This is a great private university for completing your Bachelors in Science very fast. If you are looking to have a career in science or clinical research or even pharma, the education here will help. The class sizes are pretty small, usually between 8-30 people depending on the class. I even had a genetics class that had only two people, which was very hands on. They will try to sell you on going into chiropractic medicine or naturopathic, but don't fall for it. If your going to spend that much money for a doctorate, why not become a real doctor. Most of the DC and ND are so deep into the quackery of their major that they cant see how crappy being a chiropractor really is. Ever notice most chiropractors have tiny little store fronts in strip malls or old houses on busy roads? Stick to the bachelor program and go to a real university for your advanced degree.
The science courses were challenging but not unbearable. The teachers for the most part are very helpful and will assist you if you make an appointment or if you wait after class. The campus is older but not bad and I felt completely safe. I like that it is a small campus, because it makes it easy to find a study buddy.
This school is only after your money. Stay away. They mislead students into thinking lucrative careers in chiropractic await them upon graduation - the average chiro associate comes out of school making 30-40k with 150k in loans. This is one of the worst investments you could make. Even if students open their own practices upon graduation, the average take home salary is around 60k. There are many other degrees in the medical field with a lot cheaper price tag that will give a student a much better starting salary, and many more options for their future. If you have a chiropractic degree - that is pretty much all you can do with it as most other professions will not consider your chiropractic training as a valuable school. If you are reading this, do not make the same mistake that I did. IF only someone had warned me like this prior to starting this school, things would be much different for me professionally. Good luck in any other discipline.
Program vigorous and intense but it's all worth it! Like any medical program - the 1st term and year is probably the most challenging. You learn a great deal of information in a relatively small amount of time on wide array of subjects (Anatomy, Botanicals, Counseling, Biochemistry etc.). There are things that are frustrating but if you focus on your goals it will be alright! It's a beautiful campus with a revamped library! The profession is growing it's certainly !
