Going to chiropractic college is essentially a full-time job. Depending on what track you take, 10-tri vs. 12-tri, you could be in as many as 26.5 credit hours or 30 credit hours respectively. This being said, most students like myself opt to not look for a job until they know that they can handle the course load. By tri 3 of 12, I knew I would be able to handle more responsibility, so I decided to apply for a work study position at the University. The perk of having a job on campus is that not only do your bosses understand that you are a student first, but they are also great at working around your class schedule. I am now successfully tutoring for Biochemistry 2, working the front desk in Student Services, and managing to stay on top of my own studies. Now, is this everyone’s ideal situation? Probably not, but I enjoy having another source of income other than the usual stipend every trimester. On top of that, I am constantly meeting new students by tutoring for a class that is taken during the second trimester, and I get to catch up with older students when they come in to sign up for different events in Student Services. Working in chiropractic college is not for everyone, but if you have the time management skills, it is most definitely doable!
