I have had a pretty good experience at McDowell Tech, they have always been willing to help. The only thing I would change was the availability for students that work the schedule like I do and I would really like it if they offered more classes online also.
I've really enjoyed my experiences that I've had at mcdowell tech. All the teachers are very kind and help with anything you need even on their own time. They're very reasonable with their expectations and I really love the fact that you have many different options on what's you want to take classes. The only downside is there isn't a lot of interaction between students and eh Dr aren't a whole lot of things for the community to come together to do.
