Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (227)
If you are thinking about going to Lincoln Technical Institute, Career Education Institute, Computer-Ed Institute or whatever this school wishes to call itself, don't waste your time just go to a real 2 yr. college or something. I attended this school back in 2002 when they were Computer-Ed Institute or CEI for short. Then they changed it to Career Education Institute, lol. I enrolled in their PC Support Technician program and graduated within 8 months. We basically just read everything from a book the first semester, then the second semester was hands-on training.
When I first went to talk with a counselor about enrolling, she told me and my mom a bunch of bs about the school's rep, history, recent graduates, etc. Then she went on about the job placement program... about how they helped graduates to get into a career with respected companies and so on. That's what hooked me, and several other people I know, into the school in the first place. All they really did was look at my resume, made a few changes so it looked good and got me 1 interview with a job that had absolutely nothing to do with PC Support. That job didn't work out so I go back to the school for the help they told they'd give me for up to a year after graduation. The fake counselor basically told me in a rude way, that it was my fault and she wasn't going to help me anymore and that was that.
I never got my years worth of resources and help, so basically racked up $15 grand total in student loans.
Do not get caught into this school's web of lies, just look at how many times they've had to change their name because of complaints. This school needs to be shutdown and they should pay back all the money they have stolen over the years.
it's all about money,the all mighty dollar,and they really don't care about the students,other than there wallets,very sad, they can get there hands on the goverment money.please stay away,you'll be better off.
Please dont make the same mistake, I read really bad reviews on this school and went anyways. Lincoln tech in RI standards are lower than high school. The passing grade is a D and you hardly receive any education. The test that you take in order to get into the school is so easy. It is moreee than obvious that the only thing this school cares about is money. They make it extra easy for everyboooody to pass so they can get your money.
Don't go to this school, The dental program is a joke. The specific instructor that I have, lets just say she shouldnt be a teacher. This school should be closed down. You hardly receive education, it is completely unprofessional. Were in college and our teacher treats us like 2 year olds. We play musical chairs, very unprofessional.
I went to Lincoln Tech for a year and graduated. But all the while worst experience ever. I know that you're wondering "Well why did you stay there then?" Answer is why would I leave after I paid 26+ thousands dollars for an eduacation with I have to repay back in student loans no matter what. So I finished what I started.
Administrators are the worst DISRESPECTFUL. Even the DON (Director of Nursing) quit 3 weeks before graduation. Nothing is organized. Teachers are just thown into classes to teach the day of. Nothing is organized. They disrespet you as if you are a child not keeping in mind "hey they paid they're money and they are grown adults with children at home just as me." They do not keep deadlines. They NEVER keep their word, and they are new rules every term.
Don't waste your time and money if you are not a discreet person that can bite their tongue, because they can ruin you. And oh, they play favoritism to students. Just BEWARE!!!!! They are money hungry, they will be extremely nice until 2nd term. TRUST!
It all about the money if you don't pay 2 on time they charge $25.00 late free no matter it you were sick on the due day.The professor or doctor so they call.It was a problem with then that don't lising and took me to the office like a was a child and the lady in the office did it lising and got sent home and suspended then the dend didnt lising either .oh and the talk about the personal live in class with your money that your stending .The point i don't recommend at all .
I have been attending LTI for the past 7 months and it has been less than satisfactory. Multiple times I have had issues with people telling me I havent paid school fees when I have.
One incident where they wouldnt give me my textbooks because they thought I didnt pay. I had a so so education but when it comes to finidng and externship I did that myself. LTI does not live up to the standards they say they will. I would not recommend this school to anyone unless you want extra stress in your life.
im contacting a lawyer as i type this place is a total waste of time, not to mention money... im not paying for crap!
School total joke, and waste of your time. You will learn more watching cooking shows on tv sitting at home. The instructors are cool and know the material, but due to the office side of the" state" operation school is just dumb.
Its a scam, grant you money through the state, let every moron in, and there you have it. Im looking into a lawyer just to make sure i don't owe them anything. They can keep their little piece of paper, which by the way most other schools/colleges don't even consider to be credit worthy.
Email me at email@example.com if your interested in being part of the claim i make against the school. Grammer and punctuation not even needed in these review lol not even worth my time.
I have been attending LTI since dec 2010 and I loved it but, I feel a little confused about what the teacher is teaching.It seems that some teachers are not certified teachers and just hand out worksheet assignments. We are taught one day and expected to take a test the next.It is crazy, alot of people cheat I know they do because it is almost impossible to get hundreds in everything when we are not being taught properly.
There is alot of butt kissing going on here also.My teacher always talks talks about her personal life more than the field itself.I was so upset when I started to figure out that we the students are on our own. It seems like a joke.We learn to just pass a quiz or test not to understand.I think my teacher doesnt really care what happens to her students.She has a moody attitude from day to day. I want to do well and get what I am paying for>>> an education!!!! I study hard and get good grades but I see alot of students struggleing and not being helped.Ireally want to pass the national exam in July.Does anyone have advise???? help???
