    Cons: The school bashes all of medicine outside of a dire need for something like surgery or other life saving intervention. They say "if you need to see a medical doctor for something then go see one" to cover their butt. However if you exclaim to mostly any faculty member (with a few exceptions of course) that you think you need to see a general or medical practitioner they gasp in disbelief and ask "Have you not had your spine checked?" This extreme has been to the point that last quarter, a student had been sick for months(stated by his classmates), and was then found dead in his room by his roommate after missing several days of school. This comment is not to exploit their passing, its to try and set the tone for truly how brainwashed students become to think that a clear nervous system can allow the body to heal any ailment. To the point where they believe that there is no use for modern medicine. Students stop taking their behavioral medications and end up throwing chairs through windows because they were taught that medication only treats symptoms not the cause. The school is set on subluxation (spinal misalignment) being the ONLY thing that causes disease and correcting them is the only thing that a chiropractor should be doing in their office, and if your beliefs are different you will get heavily scrutinized. Simply wanting to include diet and exercise into a patients care plan tips off your peers, most professors, and definitely administration. I know this first hand because I had to publicly defend my beliefs to a group of my classmates after class when I saw a group of them gossiping about me making it known in class that I planned on implementing exercise and nutrition in my future office. Aside from all the drama, there is no preparation for you to learn how to adjust. Sure in technique classes they teach you how to set up on a segment, how it should move, and theoretically how you would thrust to adjust it. But needless to say there are students that are about to graduate that cannot adjust the spine. The university is blind to this because the few case doctors are so swamped with work to oversee they don't have any time to assist you in your techniques. Which brings me to the reason I transferred out of Sherman. They teach what they call "The Sherman Package" of adjusting. Which is a hand picked combination of about 4 different assessment techniques for analyzing and adjusting the spine(there are roughly 100+ different chiropractic techniques.) None of which are actually congruent with each other, which leaves students with so many questions about what they are finding when checking the spine, leading to "adjustments" being given that may not be necessary. I get that you need to practice to become proficient at something, but they want you to do all of this outside the walls of the institution. The president and vice president actually tell students to secretly practice adjusting outside of school in order to get good, instead of figuring a way to implement that learning in their self proclaimed "Greatest Chiropractic College in the World." (Sherman professors actually exclaim that you wont be proficient at spinal analysis until you're at least 5 years in practice.) So if you choose to practice any technique within its analysis protocol, you have to forge your findings on paperwork to fit the "Sherman Package" analysis. Numerous students sneak their own analysis by case doctors for approval, instead of being honest and asking for real help with the technique they want to use their whole life. Why don't they just ask for help you ask? Because they would either be judged heavily, or there physically isn't a staff member that is understanding or proficient in their technique to refer to. My advice would be to check out schools like Life University or Palmer College in this regard. They allow many avenues for a student to study what they want to, to become the chiropractor that they want to be, and practice doing what they want to do in school. Their clinic systems are much more individualized. If you are certified in a technique through a club or seminar, they acknowledge that you're proficient in something and allow you to practice whatever that is, in school. Sherman would have you ignore whatever your true aspiration is, until you graduate.

    Dr. Irwin and Dr. Donofrio are cancers to the college. After the college lost itâ??s accreditation it became a boards baby. Good luck getting a quality education here. You will learn everything to pass boards and make the college look good, but very little about being a good Chiropractor. The college does not care about your success. There are students going into clinic in 8th quarter that can not locate a subluxation much less correct one. All they care about is board scores

    Load up on your general sciences so that when you are in the lower quarters you arent receiving too much new information at once. Preparation is key! Also, its always good to shadow or intern for a principled chiropractor and begin to get immersed in the chiropractic philosophy.

    When looking at chiropractic schools, look at their philosophy and if it is congruent with yours. Sherman College stands strong in their philosophy and will stand by you as you develop your philosophy.
