Degree: Electronics

"WHAT A JOKE. About 95% of the students here don't care about there education. which makes it hard for anyone to learn in these so called classrooms. I finished with a GPA over 3.75 and 98% attendance. Can't find a job. Been told by many employers. that they will NOT hire anyone from this school because of a VERY BAD reputation with this school. I wish I would have done better research before I started."

"My name is Pablo. Please consider other schools if you looking to get a trade school degree, let me explain why. I started nov 21 2013. The teaching curriculum was all based off piwer point. For someone that is hands on this was not the best learning methos. After all the commercias on tv said "get the hands on training that employers are looking for at lincoln college I'm sure you've heard them. Its all a lie. We hit the power point for 5 hours straight. And have a quiz the next day. Its kind of like drinking water from a fire hose. Thats one thing about Lincoln the teachers are test happy. Sometimes up to 3 test a week. Another thing is all the equipment is broken. And when it comes time to work on the equipment we are kind of thrown into the pit with no clue on how or where start on the crappy equipment., while the teacher is playing angry birds on his desk.. we covered blue prints and the next instructor had no idea about what he was talking about. Contradicting himself constantly. So we would be confused and then here came the quiz. Some bs I though. Towards the end we moved into hydronic heating. With this old man Mr. S. The biggest ass in the world. He would say "give me a reason to fail you".  Anyway he was an industrial HVAC tech in his time. He talked to us like we were 10year experienced techs. We had no clue on how the hydronic system looked like or let alone how all the component s worked. But the next day came quiz time. He would mark you wrong on the test for little dumb things. For example your finding your cubic foot. And you give him 200cu ft. He would mark the the whole thing wrong if you didn't show the work. Its simple math you. And we have calculator for the same reason. So unfortunately he would give me 60% 70% on test were i should have scored a tleast 90s. Mr S. would have a notepad with him always. When we were doing class work he would doc you points if you talked to your classmate next to you even through the work was done and on his table. In my eyes your a  low life for doing that. Next we moved into energy audit. It was a pointless class only used to fill space and time. As an industrial tech you won't do an every outlet. Energy audit is another branch of hvac completely seperate. But we had to sit through it all or fail the class because of poor attendence. I felt like I learned more at work honestly. All in all if your in the Denver area dint choose Lincoln tech. If i would of known i would have paid 2800 and taken a training seminar with Don Leonardi which is the hvac guru. He knows his shit and makes sure you pass your nate certification. I paid 20 grand for this lame s***. I felt stupid like I paid 20 for a piece of junk geo metro. One of my work buddies went to and he's well more advanced than I am. And we've been in the field the same amount of time. Please consider another school. We had to get 9 news to see if we could fet some sort of refund for all this bs and me and my class of aug 26 2014 aand the class of oct 2014 are still in the process."

"Overall can't complain. Classes were good learned a lot. It's just that automotive trade in general is hard and pays little, if your good worker and average you can always have job.  I was older when I went and was already in autobody trade, so Lincoln tech was good to get the knowledge quick in 13 months. If I had do it over again would of went to HVAC school, more money in this trade and you're  not always looked down on like automotive."

"This school is literally a waste of time and money. Pretty much everything they sell you to go to this college is a lie. I went to the East Windsor location in CT. I was an "A" student all the way into the block 4 (your "senior block") In this block my grandfather passed away, I left the school on a Tuesday, after school, drove home for the funeral and returned the following Monday. Upon arriving at the school I was pulled aside and asked if I had a legitimate reason for being out so long, and I explained the situation, they then told me that I had to make up all the time so for the next week I had to pull double shifts at the school, both morning and after noon. I was OK with this understanding I missed "key" information. I went the entire week doing both shifts, and on Friday they told me I was caught up and was good for the next week, back to normal scheduling. The following Friday I was sick went down to the main office told them I was sick and asked if I should stay in or still go, they told me to take the day off. Upon arriving at school the following Monday, I was called into the office and told that I had 1 week to pack my things and get out of the dorms, I wasn't "taking the school seriously". I went back three months later to finish what I paid for, again perfect attendance and 4.0. The school promised if I continued the 4.0 and perfect attendance they would buy me a finishing DA and a SATAjet 3000 spray gun. After "graduating" this school they give you an empty diploma book with a letter that says "You'll get your diploma soon" and a hand shake with them telling me that the DA and Gun were just an incentive for me to get it done, they weren't really intentionally planning on doing it. After getting a job the technicians laughed at the way I did the work and told me it was wrong and the school obviously had teachers that didn't work in the industry. The only thing I was mocked on was painting. I didn't get a diploma until I called 4 years later and asked where it is, and I continually get phone calls from the school saying that I owe them more money, whenever I ask what the bill is for they tell me "well, it'll take a few weeks to figure it out" so i tell them to call me when they have the information. Now it's been 6 years, and they won't release my transcripts because I "owe them money" and they still "don't know what it's for". So in short: They don't teach you what you need to know They extort money from you at every turn They don't help in anyway possible to get you a job They kick you out for literally no reason."

Degree: Nursing

"This school is a joke!! Once they've sucked you in, your constantly reminding yourself of the 30 grand you spent in order to stay motivated. The homework is massive and only counts as 5% of your grade, the teachers idea of teaching is reading off PowerPoint's, if you fail a test forget about a second chance because there isn't one. You get two sets of shitty uniforms that are suppose to last you an entire year and a bunch of medical supplies that they ordered from some wholesale website and overcharge you for. Hungry?... Well you better pack a lunch! Your only other option is the overpriced vending machine or the hot dog cart on the corner. where will you be eating that lunch?... Outside In the hot ass sun, at an old park picnic table that you share with about 20 other girls or in a cramped room with 10 chairs that they consider to be their break room. choose elsewhere!!!!! This place has no perks."

"My experience here at Lincoln Tech has been very pleasant. The whole staff from the instructors, to financial aid, and as well as the admissions were all extremely friendly and always willing to help you out in any way they can. Everyone made me feel welcome and at ease (especially being out of school for 8 years). I attend the night program and have HelenMary as my instructor. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better instructor, she is very thorough with her lectures, and very knowledgeable in her lab work. She takes the time to give you the 1 on 1 learning which many students benefit from, but also she knows how to make it fun. There is never a class where we do not laugh, and I am thankful for that considering how intense some of the coursework may be. I am happy to have had her as my instructor, and I know that even after graduating I will be able to keep in contact with her in regards to any questions I may have in the future."

Degree: Culinary Arts

"I went on hear, and read some of the reviews. Since beginning at Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, FL I have felt that the school in general is great. The Culinary Program is awesome, and the instructors really care about you. I mean if your there to learn they will teach you, and pass their knowledge to you. However, if you come there thinking its gonna be super easy, and you don't have to take it serious is where you will have trouble. They will teach to those that want to learn, and to those who play around they don't slow the class down for them. Which I really like this. I would totally recommend this school to anyone."

Lindsay Peters - 6/7/2014
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2006
"Okay, first let me start by saying I was 18 and naive when I enrolled here. There for, part of the blame is on myself for not doing my own extended research with someone who may have known a thing or two about "college." For programs like medical assistant and medical billing and coding, $16,000 tuition is outrageous. I am currently at a community college right now and my tuition is incredibly low. I probably could have gotten the same Medical Billing and Coding certificate for $2,000. Again, that's my mistake for giving into an overly priced school. The reason I am truly upset is that my credits will not transfer out. THIS IS SOMETHING TO ALWAYS MAKE SURE WILL HAPPEN, if it doesn't, the school is likely a SCAM. I tried having my transcripts sent to many schools, since I already took anatomy and some other science courses, nothing got transferred. 16 months of school, $16,000 of debt, and NO CREDIT TRANSFER. How is this allowed? I barely even received an education. This school is a joke compared to other colleges. It's an embarrassment to go here. Also, I worked as a medical biller after school for the next few years. I worked in a few different offices, and guess what? My pay ranged from $9.00-12.00 an hour! Don't be deceived, medical billets/coders and medical assistants are the dishwashers of the medical field. They make such a low salary that it's not worth your time or money to go to school for. May as well just go to nursing school. I wish I had from the start. Lincoln Tech was in a shopping plaza in Lowell, MA. I really wish I saw clearly then, but hopefully this will help someone thinking about applying here. Please, go to a legitimate school or community college where all your hard work will not simply vanish with your money."
