The school only has a 25% graduation rateKinesiology
The school only has a 25% graduation rate of students after six (6) years. Does that sounds like a $200,000 gamble that you are willing to take? This school should be audited and investigated by the Dept of Education, but they are also making money off of all the suckers who are there so they will not do squat. I wish I never went to this school. It was one of the biggest mistakes of my life. I will never be able to repay these loans. It was totally not worth it. I was there for almost 5 five years, and still don't feel like I ever learned how to adjust anyone's neck and back. Not for the amount of time and money I put into that place, it sure wasn't worth it. Maybe if you are related to a chiropractor already then it is worth it, otherwise you are much better off trying to become a doctor of physical therapy or even a nurse. Even trade school would be better than this joint.

Question
I would tell anyone who wants to pursueOther
I would tell anyone who wants to pursue this career or go to this school to really consider the debt you are about to take on (easily$200k) To those who do not have a family member who is already in the profession (own their own chiropractic clinic) or if you don't you come from a rich family I recommend NEVER go into this profession. Other chiropractors will tell you that you will be fine and find a job right away and paying off your loans will not be a problem. THEY ARE LYING! The truth is that if you are fortunate enough to actually find a job just out of school, plan on working your ass off for very little pay. Chiropractors eat their young!! They will work you to death! You better have a plan and finances to open your own clinic or you will be sorry you ever went down this road. Save your money! Seriously!! The repayment of your loans comes way to fast and they are very very high. PS this school will have nobody to help direct you with loan consolidation when it comes time to graduate and nobody to get any advise from on it at all! Now that im the workforce as a chiropractor, the clinic i work for is constantly fighting with insurance companies to get paid for the treatment we give to patients (alot of times they don't pay or cut the payment down to less than half). They don't teach you this stuff in school. Also, while your in school you can look forward to complications with getting your loans checks and there will be no help for you. The day I left that school was a very happy day for me. I will never advise anyone to go there or even to become a chiropractor. You are not considered a doctor in the medical field. Your better off going to school to be a physical therapist. I hope this helps those people who are questioning if this school and profession is the right decision.

Question
Listen, please disregard some of the idiots onQuite BrightBiology
Listen, please disregard some of the idiots on here who constantly complain about Life U?its a PRIVATE school, which yes?is VERY expensive. If you dont believe the benefit (of making alot of $ and improving the overall wellness of your community ) outweighs the risk (of YES, POSSIBLY being in major debt) then there are countless of other professions and universities. You dont HAVE to be here!!! Most of the people who are complaining are the same people who failed to do their research about exactly how much this school costs and what they will have to deal with after graduating. Life University is an institution, but at the same time they are a business?they are selling you a $200,000.00 doctorate degree. Their goal is for you to pass Boards and graduate?to be un politely honest?their main focus isn't to make you an AMAZING chiropractic which is unfortunate but thats what clubs are for. And taking a few business classes definitely wouldn't hurt either. What YOU do after you get out of school here is simply attributed to your individual effort and actions. At the end of the day, if you want to be a chiropractor? this is the place to be. Just be aware of what you're getting into. Talk to more people that go to school here, find some Life U graduates and understand that if your goal is to become an "amazing chiropractor" or run an excellent business with a good income, you're going to have to do a little more.
