I attended this school because I was hoping to make a better future for myself and my family...what a joke!!!

During my short time enrolled in the school, I maintained a 4.0 GPA and sat on the Dean's list. One month into the program, the school decided to change our schedule and class start time moved to an hour later. I was working full time third shift at the time, but they didn't seem to care that I wouldn't be getting much sleep. The teachers didn't want to get up so early.

Halfway through the program, I suffered a miscarriage and dropped out of the school due to severe depression. For some reason, however, they decided to charge me for the full program and accepted the second part of my student loan, even though I dropped out before it was due.

My income tax refund this year was intercepted to pay for a loan for an education and supplies that I never received. Is this fair?? I don't think so. I'm going to dispute the loan and make sure that the school refunds both the government and myself for what they've taken.

I'm a mother who is working incredibly hard to try to take care of her family. This is just one more slap in the face. Thanks, Lincoln Tech for being uncaring, unfeeling, and greedy. I hope you can live with yourselves.

And as for the representative who so eloquently spoke on the school's behalf... when will you get off your high horse telling people how to live their lives?? We're just a paycheck to you. Nothing more.

I enrolled in this school for the Medical Assisting Certificate Program in Sept 09. I had read reviews for this school before I enrolled and even though 95% of them were negative, I enrolled anyway. I figured the people who wrote the reviews were just not applying themselves, or were slacking where I would not. WRONG. This school is a joke. Most of the "teachers" are underqualified, and disorganized. I am in the night course, so mondays and tuesdays we have one teacher, and wednesdays and thursdays we have another. The teachers do not communicate with one another which results in confusion, and stress for the students come test time. Also, the teachers are either scared to speak up to the students when they are being disruptive, or they treat everyone like toddlers. Most of the class each night is wasted on the teachers trying to throw together a lesson plan at the last second, and break times. I would estimate that I only get an actual education 20% of the 4 hours I am in the classroom. I have had 3 "teachers" so far that cannot properly pronounce medical terms, and a few who can not even pronounce the word "characteristics". When you try to communicate issues to the administration, they make excuses, and most of the time nothing gets handled.. they just give people extra grade points to shut them up. I was actually taught to take blood pressure (the main skill I will need in my field) incorrectly, and was not even aware of it until the instructor quit, and our substitute happened to notice that everyone in our class was looking in the wrong place for the artery. I am currently in my 4th class, and have an A average, but I feel like it doesnt mean anything because any person can go into the office and whine for a few minutes and they will actually change that persons grade to make them happy. I have earned my grade, and make an appearance and effort religiously.. but there are several people in my class who have missed more than half of a course at a time, and still have a grade close to my own. I regret going against my better instincts, and enrolling here. Even employers will tell you that this school is a joke, and they will not hire graduates from Lincoln Tech. They will pass anyone. I guess that's good for some people who want to get through life with no effort, but not for a woman in her late twenties like myself who needs to walk out of this with a career on her belt. If I even save ONE person from enrolling in this school, then I will have done a good thing.. I know it takes longer, but GO TO A COMMUNITY COLLEGE. I was sold on this school because I was told I would have my degree within 12 months.. but the truth is that most of the people who have finished their courses are STILL waiting for their externship MONTHS later so that they may graduate. The worst thing is that I now have $15,000 in loans, and 4 months invested in this school.. so I have no choice but to finish. Save yourselves the time and money.. seriously.

Listen: if you want a career in the automotive field and you are thinking about attending this school, please rethink and do your research first. This school is way too over priced 1st off. And they dont even teach you how 2 change parts - you dont get ANY TIME 2 WORK ON CARS WHATSOEVER!!! They lied 2 me, told me that that i was going 2 learn how 2 fix cars. But that certificate u get at graduation isnt worth anything. I was 17 when i was misled into going 2 this school. They didnt even tell me i needed a license 2 be a mechanic. A $17000 mistake when i could have just went 2 Pepboys and got hired 4 free... DONT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS ME BE SMARTER.

In my class most of the students did not show up for class and there was a lot of cheating going on. Most of the students never even opened a book and were there so they could keep collecting unemplyment. The teacher was expected to pass all students no matter what. Not fair to those of us that did study.

I attended this school with the promise that i would be able to receive an associated degree. What a trap! I did get certified as an Electronics Systems Tech, but I wanted to obtain a higher education than just being a tech. What happened was that the school did not offer me an associated. They said other locations did offer the assoc. degree, unfortunately this one did not. Just a certificate. When I tried sending my Lincoln College transcript to a different college, none of the classes I took are college credits. I had to start from scratch. Which meant more MONEY! Luckily, I managed to take my loses and attended a school where I then received an associates in applied science in Electronic Engineering. I also have found a great job and I'm currently pursuing a BAEE.

I attended Lincoln college of Technology in July/2009. I was enrolled in the medical field and thought that it would be a very good learning enviornment...but i was wrong. The Admissions People only care about getting you into their school, the teaching is way too fast and doesn't cover all of the material, just part of it. If i'm paying for my education, why cant I get my moneys worth? Lincoln College of Teechnology (in West Palm Beach) is a waste of time and money as far as I'm concerned. In my opinon, it is just a pretty picture painted to lure you into their school for the first two to three weeks then thats when you realize that you're not really learning anything besides basic stuff that you could learn online by searching Google or Youtube. It's a trap!

And besides, online, on their webbsite, they offer programs that aren't even available at the campus anymore such as massage therapy and interior design. So people get excited and go into the office thinking they will be able to be a massage therapist and get tricked into wasting their thime going there just to realize they dont have tha program anymore (and gasoline isn't cheap these days). I would never recommend this College to ANYONE!

this is a horrible school. i've been thrown of this school because of fighting some other student. i was the victim. how because of stupid board meeting verdict kicked out or not. in every classes instructor just showing shortcut notes and picture, classroom too horrible, main-shop too nasty. school shop car are new but they wont let us how to fix hybrid car.

cafeteria serving us left over pizza, subway sandwich and over price snacks and same as the vending truck, school transportation not accurately giving us an old coach bus. parking lot is limited but you have to walk all the way in the back. the instructor there a very lazy they just walk in take the attendance and pass the class adn the worst of all if you finish a 6 month program or a 1 year they wont give you a job but if you stay in school for the last 2 month of class they'll giving an internship.

"IM GIVING THIS NO RATING". i guarantee just go to college or its up to you go other trade school still the same we giving you advice its your choice were positive %100

It saddens me to see those bad reviews. I attend in Indianapolis and this school is awesome! They have an acceptance test so those who can not afford or have time to take the GED test can take the acceptance test and qualify for schooling.

Also they provide all the information needed about grants and financial aid and whatnot. Since I was a stay at home mom and had no income the past year I am fully approved for grants that will pay for all my schooling and supplies. My husband is currently going for EST and he qualified for one grant and a great financial aid assistance.

The Administrators listen to your needs and concerns and do everything in their power to help you out. The admissions representative was just awesome.I don't know how else to describe her except awesome.They also understand that I have 3 daughters 5 and under to take care of all day and my husband works all day as well so they worked out a schedule to where we could both attend and still be able to take care of our normal responsibilities as we did before.

I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone and I have to my little brother and he is currently enrolled and awaiting to attend his first class there as well.

Let me first start out by saying that I am an admissions rep at Lincoln Tech. I see your posts about not being able to find a job, bad teachers, etc. I find it hard to believe that some of you do not take a good hard look in the mirror because I have many former students who have great jobs and constantly refer family and friends back to Lincoln. It is no surprise when looking at the way you write these posts with your bad grammar and etiquite that you either do not have a job or find that the instructors made it "hard" to pass. Do you really think that just because you come to class that you will be given a passing grade? Or maybe you think we want to put poor graduates into the industry to be a bad representation of Lincoln. Most of the students who want to come to school don't even know what a medical professional is or does, so when you get into the program you think life is like it is on tv when it isn't. So please understand that you will get what you put in and you will get somewhere in life if you truly want it. Don't expect a handout or an easy "A". Ask for help creating a resume, doing mock interviews,for advice on appearance and for god's sake google interview questions so that you are prepared for job interviews, I don't know doesn't fly too well.

I am in my first module at LTI Lincoln, and although there are several immature people that like to waste the classtime by complaining about the grade the teacher gave them, or arguing about the absence policies.. I feel like I am getting the education I paid for so far. It is completely annoying how many of the students act like they are in elementary school instead of college... but there will always be people in the world that you wouldn't chose to be in the same room with, and it's part of life to deal with it. As long as you're willing to rise above the high school drama that goes on in this school, i would recommend it.
