Help making plans

Post by Oniw17 » Thu Dec 27, 2012 2:12 am

So I plan to pursue a career in kinesiology. Eventually, I'd like to become a doctor of chiropractic. What I'd like to know, is what should I be looking for in am associates program? Thanks in advance.

I think that DC programs require a BS. If so, do you want to spend time on an AA?

Actually, the first BS program I seen required the AA as a prerequisite, but after looking around more,I see that most of them don't. Another thing is that I don't think there are any kinesiology programs available in my area, and relocating isn't really a financially viable option at this point in time. So that leaves me with the online route. What type of accreditation should I be looking for, and are there any other things I should consider?

Sorry, I don't know anything about the accreditation of colleges, online or otherwise. Maybe someone else here does.

Anytime you want to earn an advanced degree, regardless of subject area, talk to advisors from the school of the advanced degree. Whichever school you choose to attend for your dr of chiro degree will be experts on the most effective means to be a quality candidate.

Yeah. The thread is a couple of months old, the OP not around. That's OK. You're new, and the thread is only a couple of months old. We get lots worse. I hope that the OP will see your post, though I doubt it. You are right that it makes more sense to ask people at the school institution (or a similar one) you intend to attend, not a bunch of guys on an exercise forum!

That's not to say that you shouldn't ever bump an old thread if you really have something that would be of general interest to add. Many times someone asks a question, but isn't involved any more. Sometimes they don't even acknowledge the answers they've gotten.
