  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

Doc from AL
As far as a chiropractic school, you will not find a better one. It is extremely hard academically, but considering you will be a doctor, it needs to be challenging. The faculty and staff are extremely friendly, and the school offers many opportunities to meet chiropractors.
Classes are small. Instructors work with struggling students. School is very much family oriented with a focus on holistic health.
