I am a current student at UBCC, and can say that the previous review is entirely accurate. WHICH IS GREAT. UB offers a top-notch education in EVIDENCE BASED chiropractic, a concept which those who are hung up on outdated and unproven "philosophy" will not appreciate. The young school is hungry for students, but this is not at all indicative of the faculty. The professors are a wonderfull collection of PhD's and DC's, and their merrit is shown in our student's pass rate for the national chiropractic licensing board exams. (UB has one of the highest rates in the nation.)
Suggestions
That said, the campus is located in the heart of a downtown ghetto, and the infrastructure of the school (buildings and roads) is dismal.
Overall Opinion
If you don't mind ugly surroundings and old classrooms, the education you will recieve at UB is unmatched.

I graduated from this school 14 years ago. I think that improvements have been remarkable. I think that I got a great education there. The surrounding city is in decline. The faculty is outstanding! It is one of the most inexpensive schools in the country.
Suggestions
The infrastructure is greatly improved. Things are moving in the right direction.
Overall Opinion
The location isn't great, but it's close to NY city. I think that the strongest asset is the faculty.

As a disclaimer: I did not go here. What I did do was enroll in the undergraduate Biology program with the intention of doing their combined B.S./D.C. program. Once I got there I began hanging out with the chiropractic students to get an idea of what the curriculum was like. I was quite horrified. From what I can tell they have completely forgotten that Chiropractic is about wellness and holistic health. Their motto seems to be "we treat pain. End of story." I was really dissapointed by this approach, so I ended up leaving the school, getting my b.s. elsewhere, and going to Cleveland Chiropractic in Kansas City. I was really happy with the combination of really strong science and philosophy that I found there. I am almost sure I wouldn't have found that at Bridgeport. Additionally, I found that is very easy to get in there. They seem to be very desperate for students (I assume because they are such a new school.) I also assume that their selection of teachers is similarly poor.
Suggestions
I wish they would realize that philosophy is just as important as science to Chiropractic. They are relegating chiropractors to being "back crackers," which I find very insulting.
Overall Opinion
They have very good sciences, but very poor philosophy.
