Degree: Medical Insurance Coding Specialist/Coder
Graduation Year: 2006

Okay, first let me start by saying I was 18 and naive when I enrolled here. There for, part of the blame is on myself for not doing my own extended research with someone who may have known a thing or two about "college." For programs like medical assistant and medical billing and coding, $16,000 tuition is outrageous. I am currently at a community college right now and my tuition is incredibly low. I probably could have gotten the same Medical Billing and Coding certificate for $2,000. Again, that's my mistake for giving into an overly priced school. The reason I am truly upset is that my credits will not transfer out. THIS IS SOMETHING TO ALWAYS MAKE SURE WILL HAPPEN, if it doesn't, the school is likely a SCAM. I tried having my transcripts sent to many schools, since I already took anatomy and some other science courses, nothing got transferred. 16 months of school, $16,000 of debt, and NO CREDIT TRANSFER. How is this allowed? I barely even received an education. This school is a joke compared to other colleges. It's an embarrassment to go here. Also, I worked as a medical biller after school for the next few years. I worked in a few different offices, and guess what? My pay ranged from $9.00-12.00 an hour! Don't be deceived, medical billets/coders and medical assistants are the dishwashers of the medical field. They make such a low salary that it's not worth your time or money to go to school for. May as well just go to nursing school. I wish I had from the start. Lincoln Tech was in a shopping plaza in Lowell, MA. I really wish I saw clearly then, but hopefully this will help someone thinking about applying here. Please, go to a legitimate school or community college where all your hard work will not simply vanish with your money.

Degree: Medical/Clinical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

Lincoln Technical Institute in Northeast Philadelphia on Horning Rd is one of the worst schools you could ever attend. The Director is very arrogant & ignorant & so are most of the staff & teachers. The only thing there worried about is making money off of you. They care nothing about your success there just looking for a check at the end of the day. 95% of the so called teachers there does not have a degree in teaching there Medical Assistances there selves & is only teaching you what they learned years ago when they attended Lincoln Tech themselves. I would never recommend anyone to go there. It's def a waste of time & money.

Graduation Year: 2014

I am a current Lpn student at the Lincoln tech that's located in Allentown,PA. The school is a joke. So far I only had 2 teachers that actually knew the information they were teaching. One of the teachers actually give a review of the test right before giving the test with all the answers. The admission reps lie to perspective students by telling them the clinical sites are local & they are not. My class was told by a senior student that we have to pay & plan our graduation & pinning ceremony. My class requested to speak with the head of our department & was told it is true & to do fundraisers but not until our last semester. There is always something popping up in this school that we learn after the fact & its troubling. I find it crazy that the program is roughly $30,000 then learn you also have to pay & plan your own graduation

Degree: Diesel Mechanics Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended The Indy campus and had a great experience. I had good hands on training. I read some of the negative posts and during school there are students that just didn't care. They didn't show up to class or were late to class. They were the first to complain. I really enjoyed my training. Lincoln placed me with a great company. I started out at 21.00 an hour and in a few months, they bumped me to 24.00 and I am now on a tuition reinbursment program. The only negative I have is the school was far from my home town but im glad i went

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

Attending the campus in Paramus NJ, I have found that, while all the teachers are very good. A vast majority grade completely unfairly, making up work as they go along and completely BSing their way through classes. They're all very knowledgeable, but most lack common courtesy and they willingness to actually teach what they know. If you attend this school, which I don't recommend, know that you'll be graded almost solely based upon how much the teachers like you, not what you know or how much effort you put into learning the material.

Degree: Automotive Engineering Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 1978

I graduated a long long time ago. 1978 from Union, NJ campus for Automotive. I always bragged how great this school was and the good times I had there. I just stumbled on this site of reviews (nearly all bad) because I was simply looking for Lincoln Tech phone number so I could retrieve my transcripts for continued college today. I'm shocked!!! Though almost no bad reviews were for my school campus, I'm still shocked. I didn't work in the automotive field very long but the knowledge I gained and friends I made are priceless. I just had to add this among all the bad reviews. I have to say something else that will pizz some people off. Sorry I don't mean to but the truth is, the spelling and grammar and overall poor writing by many of the review writers are despicable. If I were an employer and you used "there" to describe personal ownership rather then a place, or use "ur" cause you're too lazy to write 2 more letters to spell it properly, or failure to even use capital letters to start your sentence, would be grounds for any employer to file your resume in the "G" file. I have no advice in choosing a school for anyone. I chose LT for it's awesome reputation long before we had computers to google reviews.

Degree: Automotive Engineering Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2014

This School is a joke, I'm Near Graduation and I still Haven't got that much hands on experience, Only classes that I got hands on where automatic trans and gasoline and engines, besides that nothing plus this school all they care about is the money, I was absent for a week because of health issues and they call me demanding me to come back to school saying there going to Fail me or kick me out, And the main director is an ass, So before you spend about 20k on this School think about what your going to get out of this and don't waste your time and money. P.S Don't fail for the coUnsolers b.s its just a scam.

Degree: Automotive Technology
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is absolutely horrible, no one cares about the students and for thirty thousand dollars I expected a quality school when there's an emergency they help immediately no instead they make you wait and dont help and tell you jokes like hitchhike or call the tow truck now. I'm not the only one that went through this type of problem many times the schol has abandoned kids that attend the school that cant make it home because their CAR doesnt work when we go to a school to FIX cars. Terrible place
