Degree: Welding
Graduation Year: 2019

If you are considering going to trade school for welding, Lincoln Tech in East Windsor is not the school for you. I am currently a student at this school and it is completely a waste of time and money. The instructors barely help when you can find them and trying to ask them to do something for you is like pulling teeth. In hindsight I wouldn't have wasted my $25,000 that I pay out of pocket for this scam. I would have bought welding machines and supplies and learned off of YouTube. That's basically what we have to do here anyway. It's a joke. They run low on supplies often, most likely because the guy in charge gets a bonus or something if they save money. Unfortunately I'm stuck in this course because I paid for it already. I plan on calling OSHA on the school because the ventilation system barely works and you end up sucking on fumes The entire time. I can almost guarantee the oxygen levels barely at 19%. The sinks and bathrooms in the shop both don't work or are filthy nasty. The hand washing stations in the shop have been broken since I've been here and two of the three urinals have garbage bags over them because they don't work. I don't blame the instructors, it's really poorly managed. With Good management you get good instructors. With bad management you get instructors that just don't care. The instructors complain often around their students about the mismanagement and each other. Also, don't get the impression that you are going to graduate with any welding certifications. Unless you fork out another $700-$1200 bucks for a private inspector which they just began offering. Basically, this is how it goes. Here's a welder, here's some metal but don't go crazy on it because we don't have enough for everyone, now go learn off the internet. That's it in a nutshell. If you are a parent of a prospective student do not waste your hard earned money at this school. I could have paid half as much hiring some guy to show me one on one. This isn't me going off on the school because of bad grades or because of drama, I'm one of the better students. I am just frustrated with the amount of money I pay for the lack of an education. They only teach the very basic fundamentals and you'll leave still needing to learn a lot about the trade and to get your certs.

Great place to come to to get a quality education, with helpful and well trained staff to meet the growing needs of the students at Lincoln tech. You will get all of the necessary training and experience you need to be a professional automotive technician.

Literally dropped out. Its an awful waste of money and luckily I only had to pay for what amount I attended. The teachers were awful at their jobs, one in particular was EXTREMELY disrespectful towards students, they mostly teach you administrative garbage... Its all not worth it for such a low paying job anyway.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I started Lincoln Tech in Iselin, NJ March 2018. This program is one year Monday thru Friday from 8am-2:45 pm. The school is located on the second floor, there is an elevator but I've gotten stuck twice in the elevators so I wouldn't recommend taking it The advisors are wonderful. I had ms.e. she was the best. She explained the school to me and everything from the beginning or so I thought but we will get to that later on. Lucky for me, I got the full financial aid amount. so I was in debt 10,000 dollars. Orientation is in a room in the school like a week before class starts. From the first day of school, they give you all of your first quarter books only if you are up to date with all your payments for the school. Depending on your financial situation it can be as low as 50 and as high as almost 1000 a month. They give you these ugly paper thin scrubs but they do allow you to wear your own scrubs as long as its the school color royal blue. Then they start telling you the rules. Number one rule is BE ON TIME. You only have 37.5 hours to miss every semester which is every 3 months. You cannot miss any more than 3 clinical days if you miss the third day your out of the program and you have to repeat the clinical class over. If you repeat a class, you cannot move on to the next quarter meaning you have to that class first solo until you move on to more classes. If you have to repeat a class 3 times, you are out of the program and all the other nursing programs in NJ for a whole year. PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT OF WHAT THEY MAKE YOU SIGN! The first classes were the hardest for me which is Anatomy and Fundamentals 1 but since all the teachers here use test bank I was able to pass with flying colors. The second semester you entered pharmacology class, you must pass a dose calculation exam with an 86% or higher in order to continue the pharmacology class, you have three chances to take it but you have to score higher than you did on the last one each time. Your pharmacology teacher will be Ms.p. she doesn't play that cheating stuff on exams. Plus you don't need to cheat on her exams cause pharmacology is memorization plus her final is super easy Fundamental 2 was a super easy class because the student realized while you're in the exam room, you can go on google on the computer and yes as of April 14, 2019, you still can use google while taking an exam. Plus there was a score button on the bottom of the exams where it would tell you if you had the right answers or not but they took that off. At the end of the 2nd semester, you have a comprehensive exam which is everything you should know up to this point in the program. If you know your stuff you should be okay. Moving on into the third semester, you will have maternity, mental health, and med surg 1 . Your teachers will be Ms.L. and Ms.S., these are the only teachers that really care about any of the students there includes Ms.P.. They will really work with you to make sure you understand the material. Ms.S. caused me to have baby fever all throughout her maternity class. Now the final semester, this is the bs they don't tell you when you come to this school the classes you will have is Med Surg 2 and Professional Development. Med Surg 2 you will have Ms.H., she is the WORSE, she doesn't explain anything to any student, she goes straight off the slides. Her exams are hard but I still managed to pass. Not to mention you have one month for the class so that means you have 4 weeks to get 8 exams done plus during those 4 weeks you start clinical which is now 3 days out of the week, so you learn a lesson on Monday and the next day you come in for class you take the exam for it . Now professional developments is with Ms.L. again which is great, the school basically assigns you a tutor online( side note: if your get V. as a coach your definitely gonna pass the class, she's a great coach) to help you pass nclex . So everyone who thinks cheating they way through school isn't gonna help them trust me you will relearn everything anyways so it honestly doesn't even matter. You have one month to complete all ten lessons the online tutor gives you and you get a grade based on how many you complete so for example if you complete 1 lesson you get a 10 %, if you get 8 lessons done, you get 80 %. What they don't tell you is that the grade is worth 75% of your average for the semester and you only have two other exams for the whole class. I know people who didn't know this and didn't do the lessons and relied only on the exams and failed the very last quarter. At the end of the year, you take an ATI exam if you scored 65 or higher you can get a voucher for the school to pay for your nclex exam for free. If you don't pass, you still graduate you just have to pay for everything out of pocket. Overall this school is okay but just keep your head down and if your gonna cheat keeps it to yourself. Nursing Students are only for themselves.

Columbia MD campus. Great instructors but I feel like I wasted a year of my life. I ended up getting a job there working in the education office. It was a great work environment but not a good learning environment. Most of the instructors are very nice and try to explain atuff in terms you would understand.

DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! I wasted a whole year and I barely learned anything. Charge you 20,000 for tuition and extra s***. Plus you owed more money and that is sketchy as hell because almost everyone had to pay money out of their pocket. Each month was just one topic and the the next month you will go to a whole new topic. You did not learn anything at all. Barely any hands on clinicals. Everything was done by the computer so your eyes will burn!! This school is so close to closing down because they do not improve at all. No heaters when it is cold outside, teachers barely taught anything. A lot of people keep dropping out because this program is not good at all. At all the job fairs they had only 3 hospitals would go to the school and talk to medical assistants. Autos had more employers than the medical assistants. This school is a joke, sketchy,overpriced.

Go there to experience the best hands on teaching and meet life long friends who can help you network through your field. You can always go back and get tours to see how much they have advanced. It was an awesome experience for me and I would do it all over.

Degree: Energy Management and Systems Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2019

Lincoln Tech East Windsor is a great campus for learning a trade. I started a year ago in the electrical program and immediately liked both instructors, who both have indispensable knowledge of their field and a passion for teaching. From Day 1 on, they have done nothing but teach us the right way to do things according to the National Electrical Code and how to be safe. Lincoln Tech East Windsor is a place of learning, if you come here with a poor attitude with the idea of just mucking around expecting to get something out of your time here, then your experience may mirror some of the other reviews I've seen. However, if you respect yourself and the institution and put the effort into your education, then, like me, you may have one of the best experiences of your life here.

Dont come to this school it is a scam you are barely ever touching a car or working on it you cant even bring in your own car or family members cars and all the teachers dont care about their job you better of on your own finding a job then this school. The campus president also has the power to kick anyone out at anytime if he chooses they didnt add that part so watch out for that if you go check out a Lincoln school talk to the students they will tell you themselves not to come the campus president is a oversized baby and if babies get their feelings hurt they throw a tantrum. What happen to me. Bathrooms are nasty the guy closes have the bathroom from Access to the students just cause he can and he feels like it. Teachers are highly undereducated on being teachers and have terrible grading methods and teaching methods majority of your time will be sitting in front of a laptop while everyone around you goofs off not a serious college its a scam dont go!

Degree: Medical Office Assistant/Specialist

I feel,I wasted a year of my life to only end with a student loan.They promised at the end I would recieve 3 certifcations and job placement. I recieved nothing but a loan for services I did not recieve. 60 yrs old and owing 14,000 on a student loan that was for nothing.My hopes for a higher income is worse than when I started.
