Lincoln Tech East Windsor is a great campus for learning a trade. I started a year ago in the electrical program and immediately liked both instructors, who both have indispensable knowledge of their field and a passion for teaching. From Day 1 on, they have done nothing but teach us the right way to do things according to the National Electrical Code and how to be safe. Lincoln Tech East Windsor is a place of learning, if you come here with a poor attitude with the idea of just mucking around expecting to get something out of your time here, then your experience may mirror some of the other reviews I've seen. However, if you respect yourself and the institution and put the effort into your education, then, like me, you may have one of the best experiences of your life here.
Dont come to this school it is a scam you are barely ever touching a car or working on it you cant even bring in your own car or family members cars and all the teachers dont care about their job you better of on your own finding a job then this school. The campus president also has the power to kick anyone out at anytime if he chooses they didnt add that part so watch out for that if you go check out a Lincoln school talk to the students they will tell you themselves not to come the campus president is a oversized baby and if babies get their feelings hurt they throw a tantrum. What happen to me. Bathrooms are nasty the guy closes have the bathroom from Access to the students just cause he can and he feels like it. Teachers are highly undereducated on being teachers and have terrible grading methods and teaching methods majority of your time will be sitting in front of a laptop while everyone around you goofs off not a serious college its a scam dont go!
I feel,I wasted a year of my life to only end with a student loan.They promised at the end I would recieve 3 certifcations and job placement. I recieved nothing but a loan for services I did not recieve. 60 yrs old and owing 14,000 on a student loan that was for nothing.My hopes for a higher income is worse than when I started.
First of all, if I could go back, I would have never used the last of my G.I bill on this place. The first incident were the school shirts. It took weeks before we finally received them. Now Im dealing with the financial aid office. I had to wait four months before receiving my first fafsa payment. I was instructed to call on the 15th of January. On the 15th or January I was told my payment would be available right after MLK day, today is the day after MLK day, & now theyre telling me to come back Friday.. This school definitely NEEDS Improvement. Im sure everyone would agree with that!!!!
So this school is garbage, they promise that we would be certified but we didnt even any type of certification. I have paid over 11k to go to this school and only come out of it in debt. However I did get onto a union but in order for me to placed in a job I have to take a welding test to get certified, something the school should have done I would not recommend this school to anyone.
This is a horrible school. Reason is because there are instructors that are currently in this school Mr. Degraff that before teaching the lessons they give a test and then its counted towards your grade. This is his style not effective. I you as a student want to learn this is not the best way for you to learn. This is something that other students complained about but no results. Now I'm writing you to help a situation so that you don't make the same mistake as I did. This is really the only Teacher that does this but he gets away with it. No school is perfect but this instructor takes the cake. I currently has my own business and I hire and fire techs on a regular basis and based on how this instructor is instructing the class is not learning anything and its a shame. Because these students are are going out in the field an they will not be able to cope with such a challenging field. I have noticed great instructors leave and the reason for that is because of other instructers which as adults that is suppose to be setting examples for the students they are worse than the students. This school is always short of staff because of this. Students please reconsider going to lincoln tech in whitstone.
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 can not say enough bad things about Lincoln Tech. WHATEVER YOU DO DON'T GO (X1,000!!!) It was an absolute SCAM!!! They tell you you'll be taught about the trade of hvac, but everything you do is book learning, "NO HANDS ON" at all!!! WAISTE OF MONEY!!!
this was the worst school I ever attended in my life. It was all basically self taught, and the instructors we did have had favorites and passed them with ease. I wish I NEVER EVER went here. I DO not recommend it. Apply to a real school , not this joke of a place.
My stay here has been draining of my work ethic and overall time. It took me two months to find a job due to the lack of help received compared to what was promised, and in essence this school is just a small prison. Dorm punishments are unfair and inconsistent. I had received 20 hours of community service on campus merely for free labor due to me having a girl in my room. Neither me or her were in any sort of situation that we were doing something and we were both clothed. Yet I talked to another student who said they caught him on camera with a girl entering his room for 5 hours, and he received nothing. The teachers in the program Im attending want to help you, and they show it. Some just merely watch and play favorites. They would rather work you to death and get your money than give you a proper inviting learning environment overall on campus. I planned on returning to this school for multiple courses, but after I finish this 6 month course I am done and gone.
