    I have worked as a chiropractor for the past few years, and enjoyed it, however, the profession as a whole leaves alot to be desired...If you want to practice in an evidence based fashion, you are really limited in your ability to help people. I was recently laid off following the sale of the practice I was with, and see this as an opportunity to broaden my horizons and become employable in a field that I can always feel good about. I would like to take it further after gaining some experience and become a FNP as well.

    I did not get to meet with an advisor because I stumbled upon the program late, and there was no appointment availability before the applications were due, so I just sent everything in....

    Did they tell you about the 10 year old prereq rule firsthand or are u guessing about that? I ask because I took general chemistry 1 and 2 more than ten years ago....although I had three biochemistry courses, and a human nutrition course based in biochemistry since then...I wonder if they will let those count??

    They did not tell me about the pre-req rule, but with your biochemistries I would hope that they consider those as advanced courses and count them as well. You could always email them and ask.

    I am currently enrolled in the developmental psych prereq too....it is my last one to finish. I know they will give preference to students who have finished everything, but I think its much worse if you have hard science courses left to take. when i asked that lady in the office about it she said that she does see people who are completing prereqs get admitted, and that for the 2012 class she said, "dont worry, your not alone in that..." Not sure if she meant that most people still have something to finish....??

    When are we suppossed to hear back? Do students that have finished all the pre-reqs get priority? I am also wondering about the funding and job placement. Do the students have a say in the department they work at Baptist? Thanks for any input

    from what I understand, the students that have finished all the prereqs do get priority...someone else posted that the year that she applied 15 people had finished them and were admitted before the others were looked at.

    The funding, as far as others have posted, is provided for like 30 of the 45 students, but I think this changes from year to year based on their forecasted needs etc. It is set up as a loan, which is then repaid by service, and I do believe that you have to apply for and interview at jobs with the hospital. It would depend on if the department you want needs people at the time.

    My understanding is that acceptance/denial letters go out sometime in october...usually mid october I think.
