Do not go here. The "campus" is comprised of 2-3 buildings (with 2 bathrooms) in the middle of nowhere. I've never seen a college without a student center, yet for some reason they are obnoxiously boasting about building one after accumulating millions (or even billions) of dollars over the last 45 years? Congratulations I guess, you're upgrading from having a terrible campus to a sort of normal one. Their current facilities remind me of an old high school and are obviously old and not taken care of. It felt dim, dirty, and way too small for my liking. I spoke to a couple of upper quarter interns and they made it clear that I should research my options before coming to Sherman (which I already was going to do). Interns get to huddle in a small "ready room" waiting for their patients when they get to outpatient clinic because that's the only room where you can hear the loud speaker saying your patient has arrived. When I checked out Life's facilities, they were so much nicer, modern, and at least had speakers notifying interns that their patients have arrived throughout the student areas in the clinic. Given the amount of money this place has accumulated, I'd expect much more than crappy facilities and one new student center that should've been built a long time ago. This place obviously doesn't have its priorities in order (the students aka the only reason they're in business). The students I talked to told me a lot of other weird stories about staff being rude and faculty being unprofessional. The one that stood out the most was apparently a professor recently told her class "they should be shot" and repeatedly uses the R word to demean/ make fun of students (as someone with an autistic brother this is especially shameful). Apparently Sherman's biggest selling point is their teachings of the chiropractic philosophy, but Life is big on chiropractic philosophy too, so I'm not sure why they think they're so special. Their faculty also still preaches that vaccines cause autism with no scientific evidence. I shouldn’t have to explain why that is a HUGE problem. Sherman is also way too expensive and I don't know how many people can afford to do all of their learning at seminars that cost money to attend when I thought that was the whole point of paying for your education/ tuition. Where all that money goes is clearly a mystery. Finally I checked out Spartanburg since Sherman makes it seem kind of cool on social media. Turns out that's all a facade too. The place sucked and had 2 decent restaurants to choose from. Sherman might be a good place for someone who doesn't value their surroundings/ location, doesn't like doing things, and has a lot of money to waste.

I am so grateful for my education received at Sherman College. The professors and administration provided me with every opportunity I could have asked for and I graduated with the skills and knowledge to thrive in my career. Sherman is incredible for knowing what is truly important in a chiropractic education and focusing on their students receiving excellent training in these specific fields. Every chiropractic school is different, so if you are looking for a school that will teach you how to truly care for patients and give you undeniably great adjusting skills, choose Sherman.

My back still hurts.This place wouldn't do anything but adjust my spine once in a blue moon and say "pain was a part of life I had to accept regardless of how my quality of life was affected."A bunch of quacks pushing an anti medicine agenda

Overall Rating:

This is the premier chiropractic college in the country. Other colleges teach subjects related to medicine and students never gain the essential nature of chiropractic and therefore do not have the knowledge and confidence to truly practice chiropractic. Some come close but none do it as well or better than Sherman. Plus the weather is almost idea. If I were going or sending family this is the only place I would consider. The administration and faculty are top notch, the best in the profession.
