"Hello, to all that are considering to go to Lincoln Tech, bare with me this will be long. First, know that this is what you want to do because it will cost you. Also, research jobs out there, how long it will be around, and where you can work as a MA,LPN, etc. Second do your homework on which Lincoln Tech facilities you are thinking about attending, look into the instructors, and what they are offering. BECAUSE, it is not the case.. they say it is more hands on, that the instructors are there to help you, and that you will get what you put in, if you meet them 120% they will too... EKKKKK WRONG... I myself followed the dress code, code of conduct, and attendance/school work, etc... but where is the help! They offer. As a student all I see and hear is that I have academic freedom OR i don't want teach this class, while some student are lost, sleeping, or on there phones, and/or not have the supplies and say it was a trick to see who is listening. Also, two weeks away from internship NO SITE, and when we have questions, the instructors talk under their breathe saying "that's stupid", while they get mad at the students following a break schedule they made up, and want us to change to the old ones because some instructors don't like it.. or if email to the wrong email address when they multiple email address for school and tell us once and not write it anywhere. Also, when you email with question for test on Thursday and they don't email us, and the test is at 8:30 am, because when your off, they are off????? they do not email on weekend, wait till Monday. How are us to study? You will have to teach yourself most of the time. ANOTHER FUNNY THING IS that they will talk to you when the corporate come to visit you, give you help to cover there butts. This school is all about business (money). So please, do your research and know this is what you want. However, for some this is the only way to feed and rise our family, because we need to start somewhere... I NOT SAYING ALL STUDENTS ARE THE SAME, BUT I AM TALKING ABOUT MYSELF AND INDIVIDUALS LIKE ME. so if Lincoln Tech read this and say yeah whatever they don't know what I'm talking about please look into it further, for future students. Thank you."

"I went in to ask a few questions and walked out signed up to start in 2 months. I was essentially promised a rewarding career and to be making money. After 6 years in retail management, it seemed too good to be true. It was. I had excellent grades and worked hard at school. I never found a job as a medical assistant, could not transfer my credits and the school promised to pay for my certification but never did. Now I owe 10 grand in student loans and I feel like I was cheated. I should have just gone to community college, at least then I could transfer. I am sorry I ever walked through those doors. I'm not going to say I didn't learn anything; I definitely did, but I didn't learn 10 thousand dollars worth."

"Horrible! I would never tell anyone to go here! I was there when they bought out the school before it. They changed everything in the middle of semesters. I was in a big room with two different teachers teaching two different things to two separate classes. I basically learned everything myself!"

"Iam currently attending the Paramus campus and let me tell you , THE WORST , the teacher literally admitted to the student if she/he does not like you they will fail you out of spite , I was also told if work is being due 2 days later & you choose one of the 2 days to be absent for personal reasons they will purposely change the due date of the work to the date you are absent so you can get a 0 , also Iam attending night class and was told that every class during the night class are able to do their work at home & school also but my class , the class Iam currently in is not able to do any work at home . They also recently hired a new professor let me tell you , she's the worst she favors students and if your not in her favor be ready to retake the class ! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYBODY!"
a possible big mistake =/

"Id say it started off great and I loved it! but now im in my third mod and its ALOT of self teaching! I don't feel like im learning anything at all and I feel like im wasting my time and money =/ its like they'll tell you to go on a website and complete the work that's it! none of the instructors speak good English and if they do they speak way too fast! im just so on the fence of withdrawing myself from the program but at the same time I don't want to start all over elsewhere =/ oh and they treat you like highschoolers if you leave early for whatever reason you may have they will mark you absent for the day!"

"My experience at Lincoln Tech was wonderful. You get to learn a lot of different things,the professors are very nice and very informative. You do a lot of hands on training which is good to learn. I went to Lincoln tech not knowing what I was getting myself into,but I must say that I am happy with the choice of going back to school to take up a trade. Also very satisfied with the school of my choice (LINCOLN TECH)! I completed my 9 month course as a Medical Assistant,went on my externship completed 180 hours. Went on my first interview which was literally a month after completing my externship,and nailed the job! I really don't think I would have been offered the job if I didn't have the experience that I now have. It's been a great 9 months learning new things and meeting new people. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who is looking to take up a trade. It really helps you out,you have the opportunity to get trained in so many different areas. I am so happy and greatful and humble,everyone doesn't get a chance to go to school to better their lives.If you can you should,trust me you will never regret it! :-)"

"This school is a complete JOKE! Not only is it overpriced but the staff sucks! Some of my instructors were great and wanted to teach. Most however were too busy either trying to be friends with the students or flirting with the few male students we had! How professional!!! When I had my first meeting with Ms. Wright in admissions she basically told me bc I had no previous medical experience I wouldn't be able to handle the LPN courses and would be setting myself up for failure.....funny bc when the LPN instructor saw my grades she said I should have went for LPN. The career coach called me and bothered me many times with bs. I was told on more than one occasion someone would be contacting me for a job and they never did! And most of all is the issue with billing. After my father who was paying what the grants didn't cover received a fully paid tech has managed to mess my credit up and tried saying I owe $1, 100! All of a sudden today they found the fully paid receipt and have to investigate it. Please do yourself a favor and don't go to Lincoln will definitely will regret it!"

"Everyone there is very helpful and the support is amazing. If I had any questions they did not hesitate to answer them they are remarkable. The instructors take their time in teaching you and if you are having trouble they will give you their email address or their schedule when it is convenient on helping you. The director was a big hoot me and my classmates always wanted to challenge her in saying "GOOD MORNING" she was the one she would go to every classroom and say it but we wanted to be the first on saying it first. The dean she is amazing she laughs with us and she gets involved with the schools funding. Everyone at this school are the most wonderful people you would ever meet. I am on externship and I am adapting just perfect on the skills that were passed on to me to be carried out Thank You Lincoln Tech of Brockton you have changed my life in so many ways"
F*** Lincoln Tech Northeast Phila Campus

"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."
