looking at Life University the price for one quarter around $6,300 x 3 quarters a year $18,900 a year. for 14 quarters to obtain at degree of DC $88,200.


For Medical school you would pay about $135,000.

My suggestion would be to pay for the additional 50K and becoming a MD or go the DO route if you like manipulation. Your income potential is greater and long term satisfaction will be higher.

this is a no-brainer type of decision. for the life of me, i can't think of a real reason to do chiropractic. there is no "advantage" of being a chiro. in fact, in most instances, it is a hinderance. i just read where a girl from my hometown graduated from osteo school (she was turned down or wait-listed from university of florida med school). she didnt sit and cry about for long, she went in another direction and is moving on. she was accepted into a high speciality residency. bookite is right...dont do chiro.

it is very hard to be accepted into medical school so ppl are looking for the alternative direction.

I want to try foreign medical school, but money is holding my foot:confused:

Have you considered Philippines medical schools? There are many good programs there and tution ranging from 3,000-4,000/year. A stupid bachelor degree in US cost more per year than this. PI med school graduates can practice in any states as long as you pass your USMLE and residency. I did. You can find all the information you need under asian medical school forum. So Good luck and take a chance to be a real doctor for once, or you can always go spinal screen at the swapp-meet. It's your choice!

I have not recieved the nmat results, I presume they,Center for measurement don't mail to me.. Anyway i have a receipt paper for nmat admission. What Should I do.
Should I go back to Fatima medical school starting class for Sep??

I assume you are a chiropractor; would that be right? I am also. I am giving some serious thought to Windsor in the Caribbean, myself.

Money is a very serious issue for me as well.
