Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (211)
for everyone complaining why didnt you people just report them to the BBB if the school is that bad and you feel like you've wasted your money.
Everything in life is a personal choice, maybe you were just at the wrong place at the wrong time,as far as job placement any school can tell you that they will have a job waiting for you when your done but the bottom line is the company has to like you and for the most part your the one who has to put the effort in to actually get the job,no one can pick who they go to school with I really dont think it matters where you go to school at your always gonna have those folks who dont get it and who act like fools, just move on and learn from your mistakes.
despite the bad complaints about the school I'm gonna give it a shot I hope I have better luck at the Mount laurel Campus and if not I know how to complain to the right folks to help make a difference like the BBB and the Board of Nursing, there are so many proper outlets all of you could have taken to help get the school back on track but I guess comlaining is working out better.. Good luck to all of you!
I started Lincoln Tech at the Brockton campus in july 2010 i am currently in my 5th Mod and this place is a joke.So far a friend of mine has had to have her grade fixed every mod because the teachers apparently have no idea what they are doing, In most of the classes you pretty much teach yourself then when the teachers do help you out they skip chapters because "you dont need to know it for a test" What happens in the real world when that chapter that was skipped needs be known!?!?
Just today in class we watched a movie instead of reviewing for our midterm that is on Monday because our teach didn't feel well what is that?? They tell you its hands on NOT Phlebotomy is the only class that is hands on.They also fail to inform you that they DO NOT have job placement they tell you that 40% of the people on externship get jobs yet theres people coming back saing they have been out for 5 months and cant find work because you need 2 years prior experience.
The tuition is insane look up the books they use online and do it at home you'de be better off on your own.Seriously dont waste your time please!!!
It all boils down to one thing. College credits. LTI does NOT have accredited classes. I received an associates degree there a few years ago, and I got a decent job, but now I'm ready to do more with myself. NOPE! None of my credits transfer! NONE! $25,000.00 for what? NOTHING! I have to start bascially ALL over again. I guess I'll have two seperate Associates Degrees and a LOT of wasted money. I feel like a dipstick.
I was all proud when I graduated with honors at the top of my class thinking I was actually on the way to bettering myself and furthering my education. I went and applied to a school to get my Bachelor's rolling and they all but laughed in my face. Do what everyone is saying here! Go to a community college and get the credits that will actually HELP you later! Don't get duked into this sham! You owe owe it to YOURSELF! PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!!!
If you are not planning on going anywhere else, and want nothing but an associates, this is for you. If all you want is an associates in this day and age, I feel sorry for you. I've been at my job I got with My associates for 4 years now, and there is NOTHING higher without a Bachelor's. I make CRAP. Now I have to get the 2 years of my life back and start all over!
I have been attending the LCI in Columbia MD for a month now. It is a great school. The Chef/teachers really know what they are talking about. The coursework is very intense and you learn a lot in a short period of time. The school is very clean and the kitchens are amazing! They have everything you could ever need in a kitchen. They have about 4 hand washing stations per kitchen. They are very big on hygiene. You take quizzes all the time to make sure you are understanding the information.
I would definitely recommended LCI!
This is just an f.y.i. for anyone thinking about entering the MA program in Edison NJ. You will be wasting you're time and all of your money or the states. This school and structure was designed for children , not adults trying to better themselves in building a skill for a career. Starting with the school and rooms, they are absolutely filthy and unorganized start to finish.
The grounds aren't what you would consider safe either. The teachers are either under educated themselves or have to follow the guidelines that seem to be configured by children.
I am so disappointed that this school was the decision I made. Now that the staff and school itself have been discussed, I guess it's time to get into the students. The students in my program range from 17 and up and a majority of them are female. MOST are unproductive,not interested in learning what so ever, loud, distracting, rude, disrespectful, caddy, and everyone talks behind everyone's back. It's just plain childish. So I truly hope whoever reads this takes my words seriously.
This is not the first college/adult training I have attended but it is by far the worst and I would never recommend this institute to anyone. I am sorry if I have offended anyone but, everything I have said is my own opinion and the same opinion of several of the other people in this school.
I am in the MA-X-ray program at the Fern Park campus. My A&P class was fine, the instructor was ok. My MA instructor was absolute AWESOME!!! I am extremely confident in my skills and knowledge. But, the x-ray portion of the program SUCKS!!!
I have spent 18 weeks in the course, but am very uncomfortable about my skills and am not looking forward to this portion of my externship. The teacher gave us the test for each week on Monday, then would go over every question and all answers on Wednesday, then Thursday, the exam is given exactly as given to us, but the questions are in a different order.
I have maintained a 4.0 and have very few absences..and yet I'm not convinced that I know all I need to know. The worst part of all of this, the administrative staff doesn't care about any concerns the students have.
Please be sure to think about this program and campus before you make your final decision. If I were to do it again, I would not take the BMO portion of the program, and would probably have to think real hard to decide about going to LTI.
I att. LTI on Jan06 the entire course was for 11 month, Let me just tell u, I dind't know anything about Air conditioning,electrical and Heating. After compleating 10 course with a 4.00 GPA I was happy,until my last class Refrigeration 2 for commercial application I pass all of my test except for one I had a low score but did not fail the test.I pass the class with good grades after all. I was also in the ELITE team. This program had u compete with other tech on trouble shooting units with different problems.
My only dissapointment was with their Job placement Program or u could say the cordinator for the school job placement department, No job for almost 6 month,I had to ask a friend to get me a job, but overall I did learn a new career
I attend the Lincoln tech in Edison NJ, worst school ever. Over priced for NOTHING!!! The externship coordinator is horrible!! I regret everything about this school, better off going back to college and finishing up. The sell you LIE about this school!!
My son went to this school for less than 3 weeks. He got robbed at gun point while trying to get some food 1 block away because there is no facility in the dorm after 7 for food. The dorm is in the middle of one of the worst slums in Conn. and they do not tell you this when you visit or sign up.
The teachers spend more time in coffee klatches catching up on their lives than interacting and actually teaching the students and the administration does not bother to check to see what is going on in the classrooms. If you want to spend a lot of money on very little than this might be the place for you, otherwise be smart and steer clear.
(For the record, I go to the one in Northeast Philadelphia.) I went to CCP for a semester to find out that it was a mess there. So, I applied to Lincoln Tech for Computers. I am not an idiot with a computer either. This campus when I first started lost a computer teacher. So it left the school with 3 teachers and some subs. Every single computer teacher does not teach.
The class I have some kids just leave for the day because they feel they are not learning anything and I admit I am in that group of people. People I talk to in another class say they same and we hold ourselves together as long as we can to try to stay.
The school does not care if anyone learns as long as they have their money they do not care what you do. So many people who deserved to be kicked out weren't. The teacher I have now has gotten complaints from the staff due to the students telling the staff about him and they did nothing!Acted like nothing is wrong. Other campus's are diffrent but 98% of reviews I have read they are not much different.That saying ' you will only get what you want out of an education' means nothing when the teacher can not teach and every computer teacher there cant teach either. So my advice is do not go here you will waste your money
