"The Medical Assistant Program that Lincoln Technical School offers prepared me to have a rewarding career in the medical field. I learned many different skills that are beneficial to me and to the patients. The instructors taught me how to perform EKG, CPR, and how to draw blood and through the process I became certified on all of these. Career Services (Debra Williams) was so helpful in locating a job for me. She never gave up on me until I finally landed a job that I really wanted. The staff were always helpful and very professional. The instructors were knowledgeable on the subjects."

"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."

"Like many of the people here, don't waste your time with this program. It's overpriced, undermined a******, running a circus at this place. You pay over $15000 for a piece of paper saying DIPLOMA, pay outta pocket to the AMT for your RMA, and the student loan process is sketchy as Hell. I ended up having to take a secondary loan out, because, even when I was unemployed, I made too much money. The classes was one topic a month. The teachers were cut rate, trying to be friends with some, ignore some that needed help, and some of the students were incompetent d******** that should've been kicked out the program, but LTI just wanted that money. I busted my a** every class. Some teachers were supportive of my efforts, while there were one or two that literally got discouraged when I got an A in their class. Their job placement team is, in so little words, B*******!! I worked EMS for years before entering the program. Told the staff my focus of which offices I preferred. Instead of taking a straight A, perfect attendance student that have 100% to that program, they placed me in a EMS transport agency... Not exactly the effort I was looking for. I graduated top of the class in my graduating class with the Academic Achievement award. I became an RMA 5 months before graduating, and they had 2 people speak on behalf of the class that didn't have the honors I did; maybe because I have no filter and would've spoke my mind. I never found work as an RMA, probably because 1. I went to LTI & 2. I was a man, and just appeared like every person doing interviews was a woman and gave me the "yea, no thanks" attitude... Sexist much?! So bottom like, go somewhere else, because to this day, I went back to industrial work, making double what I would've made doing medical assisting. We live and we learn... You just have to do the research and take our lessons to mind."

"I want to how we can do about Lincoln tech I read many compliant about then but what we can do? i have the same problem about paid back everything when you have a personal issue like family death and they denied you to take time out. instead they made you to lose all your grant a paid back all the money for a course that you even finish.. this is not fear"

"I was so excited to begin at this school. They guaranteed me a job once finished and promised me a lot of financial assistance which would leave me owing barely anything. They also enticed me with Mothers Hours. I had one class per day, for a half day of schooling. This was perfect because I had an infant at hoe who was being watched by my great grandmother. I couldn't go for any more time at that time. So things were going ok. Although it was way to easy. The day before our tests the teachers would get up in front of the class and have us take notes. These notes were actually a complete test. It was every question on the test in the order it would be on the test. I literally only studied that on the way to school the next day and got 100% on every test. Then they decided to have a meeting and tell us that our hours were changing. It would no longer be a half day program, it would now be full day. I told them it was not what I signed up for and that it was not feasible with a small child at home. They told me that my contract stated that they could change the hours. I requested a leave of absence so I could figure it out. They denied me and I had to leave the school. Because I left early I lost all of my grant money and now have to pay back all of my tuition. I am in debt for a program in which they handed me the test questions the day before the test and changed the hours 3 months into school. I owe 13,000 for nothing. I lost my tax return this year for this school. I was also just reading some of these reviews. How is it that they say 4 star but when you read the review they tell you "this is why I gave 1 star""

"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."

"I thought going to this school would be a new start for me. I was so wrong. They lie to get you into the school. Then when you graduate you can't find a job. Now I'm in debt because I can't afford to pay loans and my house hold. Wish I would of never went."

"I been going to this school for 3 years now and I been working hard. I did two programs MOA and MA. Now they want to charge me 19,000 for two programs when they suppose to only charge me for 3 extra classes since I was a MOA. Now they saying I never finished my MOA program but the financial aid advisor had messed up telling me I could finish those classes at no additional costs. It turned out this person was a temp and wasn't fit because other people had complained. Now I wasted my time and money on 13 classes but they charging me for like 20 classes. They dropped me several times. Ita ridiculous they be over charging. Plus there equipment was overly used and the arms we uses in phlebotomy was torn and worn out...they wasn't replacing them. Its not fair when you get promised a high education and a job afterwards when you don't really get that out of this.....I dislike it. Plus one teacher didn't know what she was teaching and was wondering why she was placed in the class. She didn't know the material or even tried to learn it. My money has gone to waste and the material I learned wasn't as thorough as I needed it to be. By this time I could have gotten my associates degree at a community college such as Bunker Hill which is cheap and affordable and is also hand on. This school is a rip off. I don't advise anyone to go here. Look into your options before you put yourself in debt. Then you have too much issues with Lincoln tech afterwards. It is terrible."
