Choosing in which state you will study is one of the most important factors since Acupuncture law and reguraltion vary in each states. We suggest New York as being the center of the world which has very interesting and unique market. Of course it is important that you really love the city where you will live.

Of course, it is not that there're always good things about NY. Living expense, rent fee, tuition in NY are more expensive than other states. And living in this busy, fast pased, competitive city could be stressful. And weather in NY ....spring and summer are short, winter is long and cold.
However, NY is a very special place as being a center of the world of culture, art, economy where people from all over the world come to make their dreams come true. Everyday you have to compete with them. But the beauty of NY is that it can reward those who never give up and don't back down from the challenge. NY loves a winner and someone who got their the hard way. NY can reward that type of person in ways most places cannot.
