Chiropractic is an awesome career and way of living. Chiropractic philosophy guides one to live by healthy principles and if you are going to teach health, you should be an example of it. Adjusting people and seeing them regain their lives is a wonder-filled thing to do every day.
Rather than taking our word for it, check out these two articles: MarketWatch (Market Watch, August 15, 2015) and Brooking’s Institution (April 2015.) MarketWatch shows that Palmer College has a student loan repayment rate of 96.5%. The average for all chiropractic colleges is 93% and the average for all US colleges students is 86.3%. The Brookings Institution analysis is very complicated, factoring many things in addition to loan default rates. The Davenport Campus of Palmer earned a score of 100 with regard to loan repayment, and 99 for occupational earnings. So what does all this mean? If you are searching for a career, chiropractic looks very good and Palmer grads become successful chiropractors!

The “Degree Requirements Comparison” is a great illustration of the graduate school educational requirements to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. Most chiropractic, osteopathic, and medical schools require a four year undergrad degree followed by professional/graduate school. A bit of personal advice: even if a four year degree is NOT required, get the BS degree anyway. The time and energy it takes to earn it allows a person to have fun and mature before entering the rigors of chiropractic (or other professional) college.
