Mostly I found NESA to be a great school. It is the first acupuncture and oriental medical program in the country and therefore the oldest. NESA has a diverse clinical program with a strong on site teaching clinics as well as many satellite clinics in hospitals and neighborhood health clinics. NESA offers a diverse curriculum in both Chinese Herbal Medicine and a Japanese Acupuncture track as well an an opportunity to receive a dual major from Tufts University in pain management. Overall I had a solid experience with NESA - that said I am so happy I am done!

Brendan, I am giving strong consideration to NESA programs.
Can you speak to the level of science/biology/chemistry rigor in the curriculum?
Though my instincts and experience tell me I would be a good acupuncturist, I am coming from an art & design background prior to this and do not have a super strong aptitude for heavy science/math quantification and pounding through tons of huge books. I am more of an experiential learner too. So, do you think I would stand a chance of doing well with NESA's type of training/pedagogy??
Your advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
