Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (214)
I graduated from LCI 2 yrs ago I have to tell you there is alot of bullying here even as an adult. Alot of curriculum was not covered. It's pretty sad. There is alot of goofing off. I volunteered much of my time here and it actually didn't matter. I had to find my own internship without any direction. Most folks that I graduated with are not in this field. No, I would not recommend this school. I went to the school in Shelton CT
I didn't even go to this school but went in for interviews and it's so much money,you dont get a degree and you have a bunch of hidden fees. they attack you by phone everyday to come to there school and try to make even a university look bad compare to theirs. Biggest Mistake if you go here,I even have friends that went here and they ended up going to another school,but already wasted there money! do not go here!
I would recommend this college to anyone. The prices were reasonable for the education I received. They offered evening classes which fit great with my schedule. They are currently working hard to find me a position, the difficulty is that I need a second or third shift job. I went for the 2 year MA and was very pleased with how well they worked with me to help me achieve my education goals. Like any college, there are some students who make it hard to be in the same class with them, but if you just ignore those people, you can receive a really good education. One of my friends just got a job at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital (she also went to Southwestern). This school gets a big thumbs up from me!!!!
for everyone complaining why didnt you people just report them to the BBB if the school is that bad and you feel like you've wasted your money.
Everything in life is a personal choice, maybe you were just at the wrong place at the wrong time,as far as job placement any school can tell you that they will have a job waiting for you when your done but the bottom line is the company has to like you and for the most part your the one who has to put the effort in to actually get the job,no one can pick who they go to school with I really dont think it matters where you go to school at your always gonna have those folks who dont get it and who act like fools, just move on and learn from your mistakes.
despite the bad complaints about the school I'm gonna give it a shot I hope I have better luck at the Mount laurel Campus and if not I know how to complain to the right folks to help make a difference like the BBB and the Board of Nursing, there are so many proper outlets all of you could have taken to help get the school back on track but I guess comlaining is working out better.. Good luck to all of you!
I started Lincoln Tech at the Brockton campus in july 2010 i am currently in my 5th Mod and this place is a joke.So far a friend of mine has had to have her grade fixed every mod because the teachers apparently have no idea what they are doing, In most of the classes you pretty much teach yourself then when the teachers do help you out they skip chapters because "you dont need to know it for a test" What happens in the real world when that chapter that was skipped needs be known!?!?
Just today in class we watched a movie instead of reviewing for our midterm that is on Monday because our teach didn't feel well what is that?? They tell you its hands on NOT Phlebotomy is the only class that is hands on.They also fail to inform you that they DO NOT have job placement they tell you that 40% of the people on externship get jobs yet theres people coming back saing they have been out for 5 months and cant find work because you need 2 years prior experience.
The tuition is insane look up the books they use online and do it at home you'de be better off on your own.Seriously dont waste your time please!!!
It all boils down to one thing. College credits. LTI does NOT have accredited classes. I received an associates degree there a few years ago, and I got a decent job, but now I'm ready to do more with myself. NOPE! None of my credits transfer! NONE! $25,000.00 for what? NOTHING! I have to start bascially ALL over again. I guess I'll have two seperate Associates Degrees and a LOT of wasted money. I feel like a dipstick.
I was all proud when I graduated with honors at the top of my class thinking I was actually on the way to bettering myself and furthering my education. I went and applied to a school to get my Bachelor's rolling and they all but laughed in my face. Do what everyone is saying here! Go to a community college and get the credits that will actually HELP you later! Don't get duked into this sham! You owe owe it to YOURSELF! PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!!!
If you are not planning on going anywhere else, and want nothing but an associates, this is for you. If all you want is an associates in this day and age, I feel sorry for you. I've been at my job I got with My associates for 4 years now, and there is NOTHING higher without a Bachelor's. I make CRAP. Now I have to get the 2 years of my life back and start all over!
I have been attending the LCI in Columbia MD for a month now. It is a great school. The Chef/teachers really know what they are talking about. The coursework is very intense and you learn a lot in a short period of time. The school is very clean and the kitchens are amazing! They have everything you could ever need in a kitchen. They have about 4 hand washing stations per kitchen. They are very big on hygiene. You take quizzes all the time to make sure you are understanding the information.
I would definitely recommended LCI!
This is just an f.y.i. for anyone thinking about entering the MA program in Edison NJ. You will be wasting you're time and all of your money or the states. This school and structure was designed for children , not adults trying to better themselves in building a skill for a career. Starting with the school and rooms, they are absolutely filthy and unorganized start to finish.
The grounds aren't what you would consider safe either. The teachers are either under educated themselves or have to follow the guidelines that seem to be configured by children.
I am so disappointed that this school was the decision I made. Now that the staff and school itself have been discussed, I guess it's time to get into the students. The students in my program range from 17 and up and a majority of them are female. MOST are unproductive,not interested in learning what so ever, loud, distracting, rude, disrespectful, caddy, and everyone talks behind everyone's back. It's just plain childish. So I truly hope whoever reads this takes my words seriously.
This is not the first college/adult training I have attended but it is by far the worst and I would never recommend this institute to anyone. I am sorry if I have offended anyone but, everything I have said is my own opinion and the same opinion of several of the other people in this school.
I am in the MA-X-ray program at the Fern Park campus. My A&P class was fine, the instructor was ok. My MA instructor was absolute AWESOME!!! I am extremely confident in my skills and knowledge. But, the x-ray portion of the program SUCKS!!!
I have spent 18 weeks in the course, but am very uncomfortable about my skills and am not looking forward to this portion of my externship. The teacher gave us the test for each week on Monday, then would go over every question and all answers on Wednesday, then Thursday, the exam is given exactly as given to us, but the questions are in a different order.
I have maintained a 4.0 and have very few absences..and yet I'm not convinced that I know all I need to know. The worst part of all of this, the administrative staff doesn't care about any concerns the students have.
Please be sure to think about this program and campus before you make your final decision. If I were to do it again, I would not take the BMO portion of the program, and would probably have to think real hard to decide about going to LTI.
I att. LTI on Jan06 the entire course was for 11 month, Let me just tell u, I dind't know anything about Air conditioning,electrical and Heating. After compleating 10 course with a 4.00 GPA I was happy,until my last class Refrigeration 2 for commercial application I pass all of my test except for one I had a low score but did not fail the test.I pass the class with good grades after all. I was also in the ELITE team. This program had u compete with other tech on trouble shooting units with different problems.
My only dissapointment was with their Job placement Program or u could say the cordinator for the school job placement department, No job for almost 6 month,I had to ask a friend to get me a job, but overall I did learn a new career
