Angel Ochoa is a 10th Quarter student at Life Chiropractic College West who transferred from University of Western States. He posted a video almost exactly 1 year ago that has hit nearly 2000 views on YouTube and is still getting responses nearly everyday. In it, Angel describes the feeling of despair while attending a school that didn't match his philosophy of chiropractic, and the renewed excitement and love for the profession he has gained since transferring.
In our discussion, Angel shares how his life and experience at school has changed in the past year, what he loves about his clinic experience, and why the warehouse-turned-chiropractic-school still has bare walls, floors, and no ceiling tiles.
