This is my school :) I love OTC, I've been here for 2 quarters now and I am attending school completely funded by the GA Lottery (The HOPE Grant/Scholarship Program). All GA residents who've lived here atleast a year are eligible for HOPE and it's something I suggest everyone take advantage of!
The Instructors at OTC and 9/10s of the employees (we won't say which dept. isn't that helpful...you can guess for yourself if you attend here and aren't on your own dime) of the school are extremely helpful and caring and the training you get is phenomenal. You won't get this kind of hands on stuff at Southern or any other large university!
I'd recommend OTC to anyone who wants to go back to school but needs understanding Instructors who care and will work with you (IE Grown-ups in the real world such as parents, professionals, etc...).
