Jason Bang is a student at Life University trying to achieve a lifelong dream of becoming a chiropractor.
Jason Bang is only 21 years old and has already achieved his bachelor’s degree in exercise science. Jason Bang is enrolled in the fast track program for his Doctor of Chiropractic.
Life University offers a fast track program for its Doctor of Chiropractic program which enables one to graduate in three years while still taking all of the classes required. The semesters are shorter, but there is little break between semesters.
According to findthebest.com, Life University has more than 2,500 students enrolled with around 860 of them being undergraduate students. Many of these students are enrolled to receive a Doctor of Chiropractic.
Jason Bang’s uncle in New Jersey introduced him to the idea of becoming a chiropractor.
“I’ve always looked up to my uncle and always really wanted what he had,” said Jason Bang. “He has always been my role model since I was a kid and even offered me [the chance] to take over his business as long as I got the degree.”
Jason Bang plans to shadow his uncle for a few years and then take the business for his own.
“I am told the hardest part about starting your own business is getting clients to come back and obtaining contacts,” said Bang. “Well if things go according to plan then I shall be obtaining my uncle’s clients and contacts.”
Only seeing his friends once a semester and giving up most of his personal time to his studies, Jason Bang has sacrificed most of his social life.
“My brother has made some sacrifices in order to pursue his dreams,” said Justin Bang, Jason Bang’s brother. “But I believe everyone has to do that to achieve their dreams.”
Life University promises to produce leaders who exemplify humanistic values. In a world where change is constant, Life University also promises to provide innovative approaches to direct that change to elevate society and evolve its health care system.
