Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (210)
Let me say.. They are a scam! I went in on Thursday.. They told me I could attend 1 week free and set me up a financial aid appt. the following Friday, I played along thinking everything was good. Went to class on Monday. Do my apt Friday. They tell me I will have to pay $800 a month out of pocket. So I declined it! I left thinking everything would be ok.. In May 2015... January 2016 comes around and my credit gets dinged for a loan I never pulled out. Mind u it's $1400 dollars... So unless u want to pay $1400 dollars for one week of school... Go for it! DO NOT fall for what I did and start school before knowing what your financial aid status is! They pulled my credit in September and November without me knowing. I'm in the process of figuring out if there is a way i can fix it. I doubt it since they hit me with a LOAN and not a collection account. I still don't know how they processed this "loan"
Ok. Be very vigilant when you come to Lincoln Tech. Ask all of the questions before you sign any paper. Now lets get to it. This school is a joke and is just stealing my money. I will be dropping out soon and go somewhere else. I expected better and more hands on labs, but you just get lecture through slide shows. The teachers are out to get you in anything stupid you can think about. Also you will feel like you back in high school. They tell you what to wear and how. You as a student have no saying in it. You are about to spend 20,000 dollars for education that you can do on your own if you buy the books. All we do is waste time most of the day. They do not have substitute teachers, so at times you have a teacher running 3 classes. Its really hard to believe, but its true. This is happening at the Edison Campus. Two weeks ago I complained to the Director of Education and nothing was done. there is not student counsel to watch over your business. My teacher had an emergency and had to leave, I understand an emergency. The teacher next door watched over the class and his own class, plus a third class of students, all in different mod. This happened around 12 noon. We had to take a quiz. The teacher made us wait an hour to take the quiz and I had to stay in class doing nothing after the quiz was done. You will have a lot of work on your own like 75% of the time. Think twicw before joining Lincoln Tech.
Id say it started off great and I loved it! but now im in my third mod and its ALOT of self teaching! I don't feel like im learning anything at all and I feel like im wasting my time and money =/ its like they'll tell you to go on a website and complete the work that's it! none of the instructors speak good English and if they do they speak way too fast! im just so on the fence of withdrawing myself from the program but at the same time I don't want to start all over elsewhere =/ oh and they treat you like highschoolers if you leave early for whatever reason you may have they will mark you absent for the day!
They did not help find employment. The school campus i went to ended up closing and is no longer in hamden. Wondering if thats why i cant find employment because they cant reach anyone i used as a reference. Bad. do not recomend. Go to stone academy!!!!
I am like everyone else read the reviews and thought it was people just being negative. But I should've listened this school is a joke it's so bad it should be considered fraud or theft because they just steal your money and give you nothing in return but a paper I know countless people have graduated top of class and are lube techs because additional training and ASE are required for anything else if I could give it -5 stars I would I have learned absolutely nothing I learned more in high school auto shop than this school and the whole hands on thing is BS the only thing your hands are on is your book I have been in the shop 4 times don't listen to the recruiter I know he's good at making you think it's the best think for you but it's not just please don't be like me listen to the reviews which are all almost negative YES the so called teachers have all been mechanics sorry I mean technicians as they say and are ASE certified but that doesn't mean they can teach there not teachers there technicians and when I asked to be showed another way because I didn't understand he couldn't help me why ?? Because that's how he done it his whole life in the field. It's frustrating to be $20,000+ in dept and get nothing from it this school needs to get its act together and go back to its old ways I hope I save someone from going threw the same trouble I did
Pleaseeee!!!!!!!! Don't goooo there! Look for a college! They don't care about your education. All thy want its your money! The school sucks! The financial help is insane. Pleaseeee pleaseeee ! Don't go to Lincoln tech. I regret going there! I can't go back in time. It's too late
Overall it was a good experience. I liked the small classrooms so you could get individual attention if you needed to. I did not like the long hours for the school day. We went Monday through friday from 9-5.
I just want to give a fair warning To anyone who attends this school going into the business program. It is not worth your time or money. First of all they let go of the teacher that originally taught business and only business, so instead they have automotive, Diesel, welding, and body shop instructors teach the class instead. Don't see how that will benefit me when a Business class is taught by someone who isn't a business major. They encourage you to dress up in nice clothing and to be presentable in a business like manner but will give you a hard time are just send you home if you are not where work boots. Work boots are not presentable in this manner. If I was to go in for a job interview or if I was running a business I would not wear my oil soaked boots with a nice shirt and slacks. So that fact of the matter is that the instructors would rather waste your time and money just because you are not wearing your boots with business attire. I do not recommend the business program what so ever, for it is a waste of your precious time and money.
My review is somewhat of a disappointment to see and look at every review on all search engines in reference to my nephew going to the same school and which I did I do not no what happened throughout the years with the credibility of your school and the programs you offer but I talked him into changing careers in applying for your school as I did in the seventies it's truly unbelievable how all of these reviews are out there and you only respond to a handful of 5 star reviews your school should be ashamed of themselves your teachers your staff your faculty the owners these reviews are disheartening I will not agree on my nephew getting and receiving academics for a future career coming from your programs because all of these reviews cannot be wrong you should be cleaning house on your reputation and fixing these issues because its peoples futures you have in your hands with the academics they put in your hands to help them
Would never recommend ever. The worst place to attend they lie and will do anything to get you enroll and they will lie and say the career services department will find you a job if you enroll. I could of did better at Everest at less you work for 30 days.
