Last semester I was going to Claremont for OTA/PTA. I just loved it there. The teachers in that program really care for everyone. It was hard, but I knew that I had support if I needed it. It's a great small school environment. I had Nancy Johnson for A&P and I thought she was an excellent teacher. I learned alot from her. My husband had a stroke the day after Thanksgiving and one of my teachers even visited him (and me) in the hospital. They really worked with me to finish the semester.
The financial aid coming through is slow but don't worry about it, it eventually does. If you're nice to them, they'll be nice to you.
Because of my husband's stroke, we realized that I needed to make more money so I am trying to get into NHTI or Manhester since I live in Concord in the RN program.
Why don't you consider that?
I hope this helps and good luck.
