"This school from the very beginning was very shady, I was just a stupid kid that wanted to continue to learn, and possibly do something other than work at McDonald's. Well well well looks like I am here again, maybe someone will listen. First of all I was lied to straight to my face about what Lincoln tech is and what it has to offer. The promises I was told, was completely false. I paid $32,000 for 18 solid months . okay so I can't even transfer any credits, I can't get a job in the field, I can't even take out a loan for $50 because Lincoln tech ruined me financially. I would love to pay the school loan but I see it as a complete waste of my time. Yeah the instructors I had didn't even have any real life work experience in the field they were teaching. There was absolutely no hands on training. Sure they told me 70% hands on 30% book work. More like 95% book work and 5% hands on training. My tests consistented on my instructor reading a book to us word for word and than trying to pay attention for 3-4hrs. This was a load of crap! Our class failed almost every test. Mr. Drystate of Allentown campus was a lousy teacher. Didn't teach anything and just played on his hp laptop until we had to leave. This school is very mis-leading. I hope one day someone will notice all the negativity of Lincoln tech and shut it down so other people don't get caught up in the mess."

"Classes were a joke. My English class here was just us sitting around talking about social issues in the city (Philadelphia, Center City) All we would do would be study for the certification tests by memorizing the answers from the study guides. None of my instructors were licensed. I was lied to and told that career services would help me find a job. They did nothing. They called me about 1 position that I was supposed to get a phone call to interview but never did; even this was after I harassed them almost daily about helping me find work. They would also take credit for jobs that we already had prior to even going there and say they placed us in those positions. (most were not even IT related) My credits would not even transfer to my community college so I had to start from scratch after I never got ONE job with this "degree" huge waste of time and money. DO NOT GO HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT! Go to a community college instead!!!"

"This school is a scam. I enrolled for Feb 18th but got several red flags before actually committing. First red flag, I go to financial aid and they try to make me make payments while I will be attending school there even though I previously told them I wasn't employed. Mind you this was after she had told me I had the maximum "grants and loans" that I would be able to obtain. So my tuition was 19k with 2k having to come out of my pocket, I wouldn't possibly be able to pay that without a job. I later sent them an email stating that I would like to enroll next semester so I will have time to find a job to help me pay for the payments. Here is the second red flag. I get a call from them (I swear they call you everyday) saying that they are going to try to "help" me out with my financial situation, needless to say they inform me that I NOW am approved for all "grants and loans" and my total will be 19k without 2k coming out of my pocket. What happened to the 2k that had to come out of pocket? Why wasn't this option given to me beforehand? I politely decline the offer realizing they are just worried about getting my money. Third red flag, after I politely declined they continued to harass me by calling me everyday, practically trying to bully me into enrolling. They used every technique in the book from having me enroll and them getting me a job through career planning (yeah right) to trying to disrespect me by saying any low budget job I find outside of what the school would find me will be my career. After that I decided to do some homework of my own and came across this site, best thing I ever did. Read all of these reviews about how the school tries to get over on the desperate and poor which is totally the truth. Run from this school, they only want your money."

"This is the worst excuse for a school I've ever seen. 11 months in this school and I haven't learned anything. Not to mention they will lie to get you into the school. The only thing I did accomplish in this school was wasting tons of money. Be prepared to take a quiz everyday after not learning anything the day before or even the same day. Run from Lincoln Tech as fast as you can you will regret wasting your life in a place like this. I dread everyday I have to come to this place."

"I attended the Lincoln College of Technology campus in Marietta, Georgia. 4 nights a week for 23 months and completed my Assoiacte Degree in Computer Network and Security in 2012.First off ANY school you attend should be a learning experience and you get out of WHAT you put in. If you are attending any college no one should have to hold your "hand" You have to apply yourself and read and study outside of class. I found a lot of the students were lazy, they didn't want to do ANY work outside of the classroom. All but one teacher was excellent. ( and I switched teachers/classesALL my credits transferred for my Bachelors Degree. Just a few colleges that would accept my credits were:Strayer University Herzing CollegeDevry Phoenix OnlineITT Tech (but this is not a good school)So please read any review with "a grain of salt" the problem could be the student."
