    I definitely wish evms would allow it to be finished sooner. I will be completing my WGU MBA HM in a single term, so I certainly will not be including attendance dates on my resume haha.

    The only option for acceleration is that EVMS (last I checked) will take some transfer credit, but it must be Doctoral-level credit and they won't accept much.

    Ah. So the motive, at least for Bridgeport, was financial. Interesting to see that the new owners are keeping the chiropractic school open. That profession is at a crossroads I think; get science or die. The era of the ill-defined and largely indemonstrable "subluxation" as the cause of all human suffering is becoming an embarrassment to many in the business.

    I wonder if the N.D. program will survive as well? There are reasons to think not but who can say. Probably the biggest objective problem with naturopathic medicine is that so few states license it. There are Boards of Chiropractic in every state.

    Hm. There's been movement since I last looked. NDs are licensed in many more states than used to be the case including New Mexico. I did not know that.

    I was just gonna say... 22 states isn't just a few, but there is certainly progress to be made.

    I read in another unrelated article from earlier this year that they would be ending the ND program. With all of the uncertainty, I accepted the spot with AT Still. Thanks for all of your input!

    They should probably end the D.C. program as well. Chiropractic isn't doing very well as a profession these days.

    There will always be a niche for chiropractic. No, as to the validity of the work they do, different topic for a different day.

    There's definitely a niche for chiropractic. But you're right, tuition rates US schools charge and debt levels graduates incur seem rather exorbitant, given the kind of market they're facing. Yeah, it just might be worse than law.
