"Do your self a favor and don't attend this school . This school is a joke . Simple as that . They don't care about you at all , all they care is about their money . The teacher treat you like if you were in highschool and scream at students that are older than them . They don't work with you at all . Ms baker is the director of nursing and let me tell you this lady doesn't care about her students.She doesn't care if you time out. She's suppose to be there to listen and help you but trust me when I tell you , you will waste your time going to her . Don't waste your money on this school is totally not worth it ."

"Very misleading on the ability too progress in my career to RN after graduation...the fact that the credits are non transferable is very frustrating and makes the write course seem add though it was want time and money. Niue i need to stay over from scratch to get my RN because my credits from my LPN are not excepted. I should have just dinged an RN program from the beginning. Very upsetting that all that hard work means nothing in regards to career goal advancement."

Worst decision of my life I'm only 18 . But men that school is horrible ! Teachers don't teach all the teacher do is sit back and chill and do nothing and gets aggravated if we ask questions"

"Lincoln Tech is a GIANT SCAM!!!!!!!!!!! They make Lies and DO NOT stand by them when asked for the proof in writing! Marc, the admissions representative told us we would get 4 certifications included in this program. LIES!!! When talking with the admissions director, Ron, he informed us Marc was incorrect and the only certification you receive is A+. Do NOT fall for this school. There are several other schools that offer actual programs and certifications and stand by them. Worst possible school. If it was the only one out there, I would rather serve burgers for life than go here."

"I started at this school 2 years after high school. I had been enrolled in community college but decided I needed more structure. I went in and the "guidance counselor" who I had been contacted by after requesting information stated that this was a associate degree program after learning of my on again off again school college history. He was going on and on about the money to be made in the automotive repair field and was really pushing me to start in about 2 weeks. I'd just finished up a semester at school and wasn't looking to jump right back into it, plus I was trying to save up some money since I was a broke college student. He showed me some article about a kid who had finished up and was expecting to make 40k his first year in the field. While I guess you can in theory make that right out of school it's definitely not the norm. I was able to push off going for 3 months (I wasn't going to start school flat broke and I had lined up a summer job) but I could tell he was disappointed when I called him back to share the later start date. While I will say that they are great about getting you the money needed to attend, once you get there you'll learn your "guidance counselor" is a fancy term for salesman. While you take what you give here, in my experience most of the students acted like this was their 5th year of high school. Learning was very difficult because of all the supposed adults were too busy acting like this was grade school. I remember quite clearly one of the instructors remarking to me his job was just adult day care. While there were some good instructors a good many got burned out quickly because of the shenanigans of the student body, and really who wants to discipline adults all day? I did well here but I honestly cannot recommend this school. Well into the program I was talking with my instructor and mentioned that I was almost done and happy to get a degree he informed me, no this wasn't a degree program only a certificate. If I wanted a degree I would actually have to go to one of their separate campuses and take core classes there. That would be another year of school, a bit of information my salesman, I mean guidance counselor, happened to leave out. This is a business that poses as a school. You can get training here but the amount of money you spend on their bloated tuition costs would pay for 1 year of schooling at many state universities and over what you could get at smaller local colleges. It's really not worth the hassle. While reading some of the reviews here about no help finding you a job, I did have a good experience and had a job lined up when I graduated. I wasn't going going to be making anywhere near the amount of money that this wiz kid from whatever article was making and as far as I could tell the best anyone from my class was going to get was 14.50 and hour which would put them well below the 40k range. While they say you get what you pay for I must say in this instance that is definitely not the case."

"Great teachers horrible leadership. Learned a lot in classes and still am very good on my own with computers but front office lied right to my face career officer was never there Jobs always fell through and employers disappeared. 19k never got a job out of them. went into default on the loan that I recommend no one take out! If you don't have it don't borrow it!!! Highly avoid this school at all costs!!! Make money before losing it after 19k down the drain I've learned my lesson."

"Terrible school who only cares about the loans you are going to take out to attend there. Highly unorganized by the Director of Nursing. Staff was somewhat good. Program is VERY expensive and not worth the money you spend. The school does not care about you what so ever. No student support. Complete waste of time and money. The Hamden, CT campus that I went to closed down in June 2014."

"I spent 15 months attending this school and I can tell you first hand, it sucks. Over half the instructors at this school have no clue how to teach the class that they're giving because the curiculum here is absolutely false. Nothing your recruiter tells you in the beginning is true, DO NOT ATTEND THIS COLLEGE."

"This is the worst school I've ever gone to. The nursing supervisor for nights is a control freak and is extremely rude as is most of the instructors.Everyone talks to you as if you were in 3rd grade.Its so painful to attend that I want to drop out but then I will be stuck with a 32k loan. Instructors teach you by reading from a PowerPoint and if you ask a question they belittle you in front of the class and say you should know that already. Real sucky school. Very disorganized and I would tell anyone who's thinking of going here for the lpn program to run away as fast as you can. Oh and if you're 1 minute late from your 10 minute break you will be docked 1 hour, which means you have to come in an hour early the next day to make the time up.Oh and on your days off don't forget to check your engrade online because the nursing supervisor likes to give tons of extra busy work for you to find time to do on the weekends. Incredible...."

"Was a 4.0, Dean list student with perfect attendance. Not only did career services tell me to look on craigslist for jobs (really?).... They never sent paperwork in for national certification testing which was PAID for in tuition. Since then, the massage program at the Northeast Philadelphia location has been cancelled or removed or dismantled."
