"This place is like any school you only get what you give . You study and try you will do well.. the teachers say you will not leave here school a master technician it's a foundation to build from. But people don't try they think they will just skate through it and be successful. But it's not true. You have to make yourself a master technician from the willingness to learn.. I enjoyed this this and I learned a lot and it helped me.."

"A majority of the instructors don't even know what they are teaching, if you ask a question about the instruction that they are teaching. They say they don't know and walk away without a second thought spared about it. They switched to an online learning platform called Electude, we sit on a computer all day and answer questions that are incorrect and have to be changed or fixed every day. It relies on clicking on a certain location to get a correct answer but if the pixel of your click is off by one you get the whole question wrong. The school is such a joke that they round up all grades that are at least a 60% to 100% to make sure they get the full tuition of the student, it dosent matter if they understand anything taught or not. Final exams and midterms are only 5% of your grade, you can skip every final and mid term exam and still pass with a 4.0 gpa."

"Going to Lincoln Tech has not been as good as the recruiter made it out to be. I'm 3 months from graduation wishing I would have not come here in the first place. The quality of the education and the equipment is not good at all. The trucks hardly ever start and run and the engine we worked on barely hold together. As far as the instructors go all the old instructors that actually know what they are doing are retiring and getting replaced with instructors that haven't been in the industry long enough to be teaching. Some of the instructors make sure you know they know more than you and others are just arrogant. One big disappointment I have is I was told this school is mostly hands on. Yes some of it has been hands on (when the equipment works) but most of it has been lectures in class. I have specifically and strongly recommended people to not go to this school cause its just a huge waste of money when you can get the same or better quality education for just a few thousand dollars a few miles away. All in all this school is not worth the money and effort."

"This school sends out recruiters and these recruiter are complete scammers to society and especially young adults. This school is not worth even 1000.00. The recruiter stated it was all hands on and not a single class was hands on and total was 53k not worth it. Jobs are laughing at me for even stating I attended Lincoln Tech for only 6 classes and the dumbest decision of my life. I was threatened by the business office and pulled out of class stating I owed money but was told prior to starting I would not have to pay a dime until 6 months after graduation. I withdrew the program came back to my home state to start school a week later where the first day I attend my new school I was all covered in oil and grease. Total tuition 2500.00 not 53K. Buyers beware young adults beware"

"I attended both the automotive mechanic and diesel tech programs at East Windsor, CT campus. The first thing I want to point out about education is that you get what you put into learning...regardless of where you attend school. I saw a lot of students here that were more interested in doing the minimum in order to graduate vs working hard to learn more. Second, every instructor I had was extremely knowledgeable in their respected fields. Yes, there are more students than just me... so I sometimes would have to wait a few minutes for my teachers time. The reason for that was that they did not give simple yes or no answers. What they did do was go over my question with me and then show me how to do that particular task one on one. Yes, it is true that in some classes I worked in a small group. I did not find that to be detrimental, I found that to be a good thing, especially since the reality is that you do not work alone all the time in any job. I found that the people that made the complaint that they felt they were wasting their time at the school were the same people that felt showing up on time for class was optional. I also found that if there was ANYTHING I did not fully understand that my teachers had no problems at all staying after class to help me one-on-one. In addition they have tutoring and every single teacher I had replied promptly, even to emails I may have sent asking questions. I think this school gets a lot of bad reviews because they make you earn your grade, they also put you in a position to make you responsible for your actions. Sadly, the vast majority of the students I saw that just graduated high school felt that since they are paying tuition that the school OWED them passing grades. I would recommend this school to any person that is serious about learning about the trades they school offer. I do not recommend this school to people that are not willing to put in the effort to learn the information covered. This is a trade school, you cannot do the task one time and then expect to be proficient, I saw many students that would do the task once and make no effort to do it more than once to gain experience. Those were the same students that blamed the school for what they did not learn do to because of a lack of effort. In summary, this is a good school for those that actually want to learn, this is not high school...this is trade school - the job is to teach the students the required skills to become employed in the fields they study. They do an amazing job and have great instructors...for the people willing to put in the effort. Lazy and late will never help a person in the workforce."

"I spent 15 months attending this school and I can tell you first hand, it sucks. Over half the instructors at this school have no clue how to teach the class that they're giving because the curiculum here is absolutely false. Nothing your recruiter tells you in the beginning is true, DO NOT ATTEND THIS COLLEGE."

"Short and sweet, Everything everyone is saying is very true! To help your self ,I would start at a community college that way your credits will transfer in case you want to further your education later. I am looking into a degree in engineering and my credits are useless. Or should I say the credits I thought I had. And on top of it all. Most employers all but laugh at you when you say I graduated with honors from Lincoln tech . Please do not go here .You will thank me later....."

"School is all about money they call you the first of every month to make a payment while in class. Teachers dont know what there talking about. And don't forget they secretly have you sign a contract where if u drop out of school early they charge you 3,000. Stay Away From This School !"
