Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (222)
The Absolute worst worst worst school ever! If you really want a job in the industry just sign up for ICAR and put your money in that. I went to Lincoln Tech for 4 months and it was terrible. Instructors not only like to tell you how great they are every second but really they haven't worked in the industry for a long time. Nothing to work on, they gave answers to the tests because all the kids do is watch the phones or listen to music. You are being set up for failure if you go here. They not only give you the answers but it doesn't matter because you're not being certified for anything at all. You can come out of that school and be an apprentice maybe. I left after being physically touched by an instructor, disrespected by the horrible staff and I spent more time reading magazines because the instructors don't have their stuff together and the material was 20yrs old that they teach. They didn't even have a back up instructor and I had to step in and instruct a class. If you're a veteran please don't waste your GI bill, I'm a retired Army MSG and I was shocked and appalled at how this school does business and how their instructors teach. After 4 months of nothing I left the school. I brought concerns to the Dean, Dept of Education, and the school President, they would rather have blinders on then fix the problem because every poor student is a paycheck. So, I found my own Body shop job and I'm a ICAR Certified Platinum Estimator that I did with no or training from Lincoln Tech. Please be aware of this place they are "for profit" for a reason.
I admire all of the staff at Lincoln Tech in Shelton,CT. They go above and beyond for their students, and potential students interested in attending. Every one is so helpful from admissions down to the front desk receptionist. When ever a student is in need whether it be help with a class, a family issue, etc. the staff is always ready to help and if they can not help personally they have resources in which you can turn to for help.
Aside from meeting some cool teachers and a couple of friends this school did nothing for me. Wasted 18 months of my life and not to mention the $10,000 debt that is now on my plate. They promised job placement, I talked to the lady ONE TIME and she set up ONE INTERVIEW which I obviously didn't get because I had no experience, after that I heard nothing from the school again. I even went to the place I did my 3 month internship with and got nothing!!! I work at a low paying job to support my child and couldn't even pay my loans which are now in default and I haven't seen a tax refund in over three years. DO NOT APPLY TO THIS SCHOOL...DO NOT LET THEM TALK YOU INTO A LOAN OR GRANT. They get paid regardless of what happens to you and you are not their problem.
This place is a joke.Dont do it for the love of God!! Dont waste ur time. I wasted a year of life at this place and they didn't even help me find a job! They don't teach you s*** and give random drug test which I got suspended for a month for a refusal. That bald f*** boy "pricipal" is an arrogant f*** boy worries about a check. The teachers s***** and half a** knew what they were doing. The secretary at the front building where auto mechanics is is an old rude hag. Don't do it I swear it is a scam for ur money. 25,000$$ -30,000$$
I am a current student at Indianapolis. I should have went to Ivy tech or UTI. These people do not care about you. The lady in the office is mean and talks down to you. They treat you like a kid. They say they are here to help but they don't. Some instructors are ok but always say they don't have the right equipment to train with. The equipment is falling apart as well as the dude in career services calls himself coach is nothing of a real coach. He is here for himself and his career and pushes you off to someone else when you need job help. Stay away this has not been a good experience for me and I am looking to transfer to UTI..
I am attending Lincoln college of technology in Indianapolis, IN. I take night classes cause i work during the days. I am wanting to get my Associates Degree in automotive technology, Well come to find out i cant get an Associates degree when i am on night class. this place is probably going to go under in the next 2-3 years. The night classes are anywhere from 8-12 people in the classes. it is true like all the other reviews you are doing 90% of your class work on a computer, and all of your books are on the computer but yet i had to pay for a hard copy that sits in my book bag. The school is struggling trying to fill classes for the most part and its costs about $30,000 for 15-18 months of school. Ivy tech is half that. Boy did i make the wrong choice coming here.
I've been attending this joke of a school for 3 months. In the beginning of classes. I was excited. Burst that learning bubble fast. First they hire teaching staff with no TEACHING experience. So the blind is leading the blind. Second, the teaching staff are not on the same page. One teacher says one thing. The other says another. They lecture you on chapters before reading them. All your class time is online learning. The teacher has no clue about grading or anything pertaining to what she's teaches. Spend your $17,000 in a college. Not a profit school. All you are is money to them. We waited a week for books & I still haven't received my uniforms.
Classes were a joke. My English class here was just us sitting around talking about social issues in the city (Philadelphia, Center City) All we would do would be study for the certification tests by memorizing the answers from the study guides. None of my instructors were licensed. I was lied to and told that career services would help me find a job. They did nothing. They called me about 1 position that I was supposed to get a phone call to interview but never did; even this was after I harassed them almost daily about helping me find work. They would also take credit for jobs that we already had prior to even going there and say they placed us in those positions. (most were not even IT related) My credits would not even transfer to my community college so I had to start from scratch after I never got ONE job with this "degree" huge waste of time and money. DO NOT GO HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT! Go to a community college instead!!!
This school is a complete joke. If you're thinking of attending save yourself the time and money and look elsewhere. They teach you absolutely nothing, you have to teach yourself. I'm disgusted in the LPN program. The teachers are horrible it's like they grab anyone off the street and throw them in there to "teach" you. Pathetic. I wish I never even signed up, they trick you into coming here and don't even mention that graduation is an entire year after you finish the program. Go straight for your RN if you are interested in nursing. They degrade you and make you feel like a worthless piece of crap. After this school I am now depressed and have severe anxiety. No one gives a fuck if you pass or not all they want is your money. Financial aid is a joke they can't even tell you what you owe.. isn't that their job? Clinical is a joke also, all you do is CNA work and you're paying to do it when it should be them paying you. Overall this school fucking sucks! DO NOT GO TO LINCOLN TECH.
This is the worst school and a waste of money. They lie to get you in. They don't teach at all the teaches sit down and make you read from a book and never explain anything. When It comes time to do clinical work they do the bear minimum. You get into debt for no reason and then can't find a job for which you graduated for. They call and harasse you if you don't pay and typo keep your certificate.. would never recommend his school to anyone
