Chiropractors/Possible undergraduate majors to be a chiropractor


Hello! I have been considering becoming a chiropractor, but I am unsure of what steps to take to go on my way of becoming one.  Do I need to apply to a school that has a pre-chiropractic study major? Or can I apply to a school and major in something more general such as biology or the like? Also, do you have any recommendations for a good major that leaves my options open, but is also good for chiropractic?

Get a BS degree in Biology.   Then, apply to a fully accredited chiropractic college.   I went to Northwestern Health Sciences University (back then called Northwestern College of Chiropractic) and would go back there again.   National' has a great reputation as does Southern California HSU.  

'Hope this helps.
