"The biggest regret of my life has been going to Lincoln Tech. I went for the MA program. Awesome 4.0 GPA, only missed 2 days out of the entire year. My parents are in a $13 thousand debt for a school that won't even get me a job. The job itself sucks anyway. Be a doctor, nurse, or some tech if you REALLY want to help people. My externship was horrendous. I was at a chiropractor, acupuncturist, and physical therapist. They were all very nice. The horrendous part: all I did was clean, stuff envelopes, and file! I washed dishes, did laundry, took the garbage out, cleaned the entire fucking building..... This isn't the shit I went to school for. I was basically just a cleaning lady. I barely got to do actual desk work (it was administrative). I was lied to. I was told I'd assist with patient setup. Guess what I did? None of that. 6 weeks of this bullshit. Cleaning, stuffing envelopes, nothing productive. No offices are hiring. One lady gave me a dirty glare when I said I was from Lincoln. Bitch gave me my resume back. I acted and dressed professionally to all the offices I went to. All the job listings I get are way too far; they know I don't drive. Also must be bilingual and certified in all this stupid shit. I barely got any help with my clinical stuff. So I'm not clinically certified. Limited in jobs. It's a shitty job anyway. It's basically just watching the doctor do everything. Just become a doctor, or even a nurse. At least you're involved in people's health. Or even a physician assistant. Lincoln said they sent my resume to an office. I followed up. They said they did not receive a resume. It was a recycling office! I was told by the career services lady that there's a front desk position in a nearby town. Great! She told me to wait for a call. What? Don't I call to follow up? She did not give me the name or number for this place. This was a week ago. I  hate this place. Not recommending to anyone. A waste of $13 thousand fucking dollars. I still have my Lincoln scrubs. I want to burn them so bad. When I hear the word Lincoln Tech I wanna rip my ears off. It's a scam. It'll leave you jobless and in debt. It's a pointless job anyway. Going back to emergency medicine which is USEFUL AND ACTUALLY BENEFITS SOCIETY."
