I've taken my pre-med courses here, and the teachers are great. They are thorough, they push you, and they teach you in amazing detail. There is no slacking off in class, and you must do the work consistently. ONE HUGE DOWNFALL: Recently, a deans has been pushing for a new style of grading where I quote "more students don't do as well" in the chemistry (general, organic, & biochem) lab sequences. He hired a lab instructor whom is inconsistent, lacks basic teaching skills, and does not communicate efficiently (despite being a very small lab class). It was great with the previous system (Lecture professor also teaches lab) but now the chemistry lab sequences have been negatively impacted since it impedes learning. Nevertheless, the school is great, aside from this note.

The school gives preferential treatment to chiropractic and other alternative health students. All the clubs, scholarships, career center, academic counseling, work study, clubs are only beneficial if you want to be a chiropractor.

If you are an IOS or BSBS student, the classes themselves are great if you have a good professor. The degree is valuable to further your career. Just study hard, get good grades, get the degree and get out.

I have given up asking the school for any kind of support. They honestly are not staffed to support a student body that is not trying to be a chiropractor.
You can tell which professors know there stuff inside and out and are passionate. You can also tell which professors are not. It seems like a very corrupt school with a lot of office politics and power plays. And it does reflect on the teaching styles of the professors.

I have taken classes with a few professors that used the class as a soapbox podium to push their personal beliefs and agendas on students to pass as facts. I had a professor claim chiropractors can cure cancer. I mean if that is not a huge lie I am not sure what is. Also, if I am being taught a course unrelated to cancer, why would this even come up in lecture?? I also had a professor asking the students to raise their hand if they smoke marijuana and when no one raised their hand, the professor proclaimed they smoke weed on a regular basis. I have nothing against weed, but it's still not legalized and as students on financial aid, we would lose our eligibility for aid if we admitted to taking drugs.

Pros: The class size is good and small, so when you do have a good professor take advantage of it because you will learn a lot. I love my classmates too.
