    So far I am in my 2nd quarter of graduate school for the Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine online degree program here and absolutely love it! The professors are knowledgeable, and the school has GREAT communication between all departments (advisors, financial aid, professors, etc). Highly recommend this school!

    The application process was very easy. I appreciated that this school wanted to screen it's candidates. Some other schools seemed to take transcripts as the requirement for entry. If you have a good GPA and want to spend the money, then your accepted. UWS didn't do that. It helps to have had good grades, but UWS cares about turning out quality clinicians and Chiropractors, not high budget figures/income.
    Great university, great learning environment, and the school prepares you for your profession very well.
