Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (210)
Attending this school has been the single worst mistake I've made in my life. I graduated with perfect attendance and a 3.95 GPA. When I graduated, career services only directed me to employers which were either offering only off-the-books employment or minimum wage. Financial services broke up my student loans into 5 different loans, some of which fell into default because I assumed that I was placed with only one servicer. So while making payments to only one servicer, another servicer held 3 of my 5 loans and they defaulted. I had been promised that the credits I was earning were transferable to colleges to continue my education further than a simple certificate, that was a lie. I was promised employment at a range of 35-45k per year easily upon graduating, that was a lie. I sat there paying for a weak education, at times having to teach basic math skills to the state paid students so that we could move on to a new subject while these state paid students attended for free and here I am saddled with $18k(mostly interest at this point) remaining of student loan debt that prevents me from continuing education, buying a new car, and even bars me from jobs related to the financial industry. The only good thing I came out of this school with was 2 new friends. Aside from them, this school was the biggest mistake of my life. Full of lies, full of broken promises, full of debt.
The worst experience, they told me from the beginning that they will able to help me in case that i don't pass any exam. Well, I passed all the test but no't one. They didn't let me know on time frame for them. They did it on purpose so when this frame time was over, you are no longer considered a student therefore you have to pay 2000 dollars again to take this class. They didn't give me the chance to take another exam like they offered me in the beginning. I don't have this money to pay therefore I cant find a job but I am in deep debt with 25,000 loan .and no career they should shut down this school like they did with ITT they are the same.
I thought going to this school would be a new start for me. I was so wrong. They lie to get you into the school. Then when you graduate you can't find a job. Now I'm in debt because I can't afford to pay loans and my house hold. Wish I would of never went.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! If you plan on attending for anything in computers and do not have previous experince, this school is definitely not for you. It does not teach basics and it is not hands on (its reading chapters and taking test on them) But the most important thing is to tell you not to sign a contract with them.what they offer is an institutional loan and they expect to be paid as soon as you graduate or drop out. They do not care about why you can't pay but most of all In THE CONTRACT u sighn a promissory note stating that the account can be charged off at a 20% to the collection agency. By law the collection agency can charge 8-12%...but lincoln tech makes you sign this and does not even tell you, futher more this loan canot be consolidated or pushed back like a regular student loan. There are many reason not to go to this school...but the contract is the #1 reason!! This school is in the ruins,they are not making a profit because if you think about it, it is best to go to a county college. Please read the contract very carefully...this school is trying to stay afloat by taking advantage of their students. I am now attending moddlesex county college!
I been going to this school for 3 years now and I been working hard. I did two programs MOA and MA. Now they want to charge me 19,000 for two programs when they suppose to only charge me for 3 extra classes since I was a MOA. Now they saying I never finished my MOA program but the financial aid advisor had messed up telling me I could finish those classes at no additional costs. It turned out this person was a temp and wasn't fit because other people had complained. Now I wasted my time and money on 13 classes but they charging me for like 20 classes. They dropped me several times. Ita ridiculous they be over charging. Plus there equipment was overly used and the arms we uses in phlebotomy was torn and worn out...they wasn't replacing them. Its not fair when you get promised a high education and a job afterwards when you don't really get that out of this.....I dislike it. Plus one teacher didn't know what she was teaching and was wondering why she was placed in the class. She didn't know the material or even tried to learn it. My money has gone to waste and the material I learned wasn't as thorough as I needed it to be. By this time I could have gotten my associates degree at a community college such as Bunker Hill which is cheap and affordable and is also hand on. This school is a rip off. I don't advise anyone to go here. Look into your options before you put yourself in debt. Then you have too much issues with Lincoln tech afterwards. It is terrible.
Well Lincoln tech is currently holding my degree hostage unless I pay them 4000,now I do not make that much money I live by myself and in order for me to get a better job I need to be certified or registered and because I can't obtain my transcript the army will not allow me to become a registered medical assistant. Student loans are very hard to pay off on what I make but I have the potential to make more if I become registered which Lincoln Tech is keeping from happening. THANKS LINCOLN TECH FOR NOTHING
Attended in 2012 made honor roll studied hard.... Yet the teachers literally passed everyone who didn't even study..... Let's not even talk abt how most teachers were recent student grads or had work experience but no degrees. THE CREDITS DO NOT TRANSFER TO A REAL SCHOOL! YOU CANNOT ADVANCE WITH THIS STUPID DIPLOMA THEY GIVE! GO TO COMMUNITY COLLEGE DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!
This college is a complete rip off. When I attended the college, one of my math teachers had quit, right in the middle of our class. The teacher's were giving us wrong answers, and it was just a horrible experience. Then when I called to get my balance taken care of, the customer service guy hung up in my face! His name was Mr W. Never sign up with this college, you will regret it.
Spent so much money. The credits don't transfer to any REAL schools. For profit, learned nothing. 3 years wasted. Starting at a new school where it is accredited. Hopefully I can land a good job with this degree to pay for my next degree from a real university.
Hello, to all that are considering to go to Lincoln Tech, bare with me this will be long. First, know that this is what you want to do because it will cost you. Also, research jobs out there, how long it will be around, and where you can work as a MA,LPN, etc. Second do your homework on which Lincoln Tech facilities you are thinking about attending, look into the instructors, and what they are offering. BECAUSE, it is not the case.. they say it is more hands on, that the instructors are there to help you, and that you will get what you put in, if you meet them 120% they will too... EKKKKK WRONG... I myself followed the dress code, code of conduct, and attendance/school work, etc... but where is the help! They offer. As a student all I see and hear is that I have academic freedom OR i don't want teach this class, while some student are lost, sleeping, or on there phones, and/or not have the supplies and say it was a trick to see who is listening. Also, two weeks away from internship NO SITE, and when we have questions, the instructors talk under their breathe saying "that's stupid", while they get mad at the students following a break schedule they made up, and want us to change to the old ones because some instructors don't like it.. or if email to the wrong email address when they multiple email address for school and tell us once and not write it anywhere. Also, when you email with question for test on Thursday and they don't email us, and the test is at 8:30 am, because when your off, they are off????? they do not email on weekend, wait till Monday. How are us to study? You will have to teach yourself most of the time. ANOTHER FUNNY THING IS that they will talk to you when the corporate come to visit you, give you help to cover there butts. This school is all about business (money). So please, do your research and know this is what you want. However, for some this is the only way to feed and rise our family, because we need to start somewhere... I NOT SAYING ALL STUDENTS ARE THE SAME, BUT I AM TALKING ABOUT MYSELF AND INDIVIDUALS LIKE ME. so if Lincoln Tech read this and say yeah whatever they don't know what I'm talking about please look into it further, for future students. Thank you.
