"Palmer College is the birthplace of Chiropractic and honors the tradition of the profession while also looking ahead to its future and potential. Students are supported in a challenging and interesting learning environment and encouraged to strive for personal and professional success. The staff and faculty are knowledgeable and helpful. Student diversity is evident and students are made to feel welcome and valued from the very start. The program is competitive and offers opportunities for students to become involved not just as learners but as emerging professionals who can contribute to the field in meaningful ways as soon as they are ready."

"Palmer is the best school for chiropractic care. It is where chiropractic started. Not only would you get a great education but you learn the history and philosophy of the the school and its founders. You get to work with professors who have tons of experience and are well skilled."

"Palmer offers a very high quality of education and is a prestigious institution. While the workload is heavy, I know that it will make me the best chiropractor that I can be. I am inspired to learn all that I can, thanks to the professors and my classmates. Palmer has a very positive learning environment and I am grateful that I have the opportunity to attend!"

"The course load is a lot of work in the beginning and some what hard to get used to, but after time and adjusting habits it gets easier. The professors are knowledge in their areas and help whenever possible."

"The program at Palmer is extremely challenging, requires a significant amount of time inside and outside of class, and is very well respected around the world. There are many clubs to join, a great career network, and wonderful people all around campus that want to help you succeed. The only con, in my opinion, is that there is very little time for extracurriculars in the first year. I'm very grateful to be a part of this program and I hope that it will take me great places once I graduate."

"While they may be a little unnecessarily stuck in past traditions, Palmer also allows itself enough forward movement to stay relevant in the profession. There is a lot of focus on technique, though there could be more in-school practice. They teach you what you need to learn to get started, and give a very good, broad base of knowledge. I'm halfway through the program, and wish I could remember every bit of information I've been told! Overall, I'm happy with my choice in this school."

"Palmer is the leader in Chiropractic education. It is a great place to learn, the staff is friendly and always supportive and helpful. The only real con has been the lag in keeping up with technology. The computers in the library are old and slow, and only recently have they gotten wifi. The wifi they do have is unreliable and inconsistent most of the time. Other than that it is a wonderful college and it has a great atmosphere to learn and grow in."

"I am originally from a large city on the west coast, but I made the decision to come to Palmer in Iowa given that it is the fountainhead of chiropractic. It was the best decision I have ever made and I strongly encourage anyone interested in Chiropractic to visit Palmer. Palmer boasts some of the best instructors in the field, and the professors are always available for students outside of the classroom. Unfortunately there is not much diversity on campus but the students have an incredibly close network with each other. The school offers little financial aid in the form of scholarships but loans are accessible. The Davenport community is small but Palmer is well recognized and takes an active role in the community. There is tons of organizations and clubs for students to join so it is easy to get involved. Plus cost of living is cheap in Iowa. Overall, it's a wonderful school."

"I'm in the first year of study to become a D.C and have found the Palmer student body to be the best thing about the school. There are so many opportunities to learn outside the classroom, which is vital to getting a good start in the profession. The students are all enthusiastic and excited about the profession, and want to get new students involved. It's a very welcoming community. Financial aid, in general, for graduate school is slim, however, Palmer does award scholarships to incoming students if they have had strong past academic performance. The campus is small, which yields great support and access to Student Services. Everyone was very responsive as I asked lots of questions prior to arrival! I'm attending the West Campus, so living expenses in the Bay Area are higher than most of the country. The college is located in a nice part of San Jose that feels pretty safe. Lots to do, easy access to downtown, and all that San Francisco offers! Downside to the Bay area is that it's not really a "campus", rather all located in a single building, but there are some picnic tables where you can eat lunch or study outside. :)"

"There is zero financial aid available which makes it very hard for students like me who are taking out multiple loans to pay for an education. The campus is very safe as security is always patrolling the area 24/7. The location is great as the beach is 10 miles away, great diversity of students. The computers are outdated and could be improved along with a bigger library. The wifi network is not good at all and needs work. Overall I would give this campus a 9/10. One of the best if not thee best chiropractic education you can get!"

"I love Chiropractic and know that this is what I want to do. However, I have been disappointed with Palmer. The organization of the program is poor, the class load can be overwhelming, and the faculty are sometimes a hindrance to your learning as opposed to a tool to your learning. However, there are some fabulous professors who are there for the right reasons and truly love teaching and learning and make it all worth it."

"Pros start with the fact that it's the very birthplace of chiropractic, and so values the true, core philosophy of what chiropractic means. The faculty are friendly and available, and the school offers a thorough tutoring program, which is very helpful. The first year especially is a lot of work; a lot of memorizing and exams but then it's all about technique and practical clinical knowledge. They're always working to improve and do a fairly good job of listening to the students. The school itself is half traditional (founded 1897) with modern architecture and technology mixed in, which makes for a pretty interesting campus."
