Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (227)
I am attending Lincoln college of technology in Indianapolis, IN. I take night classes cause i work during the days. I am wanting to get my Associates Degree in automotive technology, Well come to find out i cant get an Associates degree when i am on night class. this place is probably going to go under in the next 2-3 years. The night classes are anywhere from 8-12 people in the classes. it is true like all the other reviews you are doing 90% of your class work on a computer, and all of your books are on the computer but yet i had to pay for a hard copy that sits in my book bag. The school is struggling trying to fill classes for the most part and its costs about $30,000 for 15-18 months of school. Ivy tech is half that. Boy did i make the wrong choice coming here.
I've been attending this joke of a school for 3 months. In the beginning of classes. I was excited. Burst that learning bubble fast. First they hire teaching staff with no TEACHING experience. So the blind is leading the blind. Second, the teaching staff are not on the same page. One teacher says one thing. The other says another. They lecture you on chapters before reading them. All your class time is online learning. The teacher has no clue about grading or anything pertaining to what she's teaches. Spend your $17,000 in a college. Not a profit school. All you are is money to them. We waited a week for books & I still haven't received my uniforms.
Classes were a joke. My English class here was just us sitting around talking about social issues in the city (Philadelphia, Center City) All we would do would be study for the certification tests by memorizing the answers from the study guides. None of my instructors were licensed. I was lied to and told that career services would help me find a job. They did nothing. They called me about 1 position that I was supposed to get a phone call to interview but never did; even this was after I harassed them almost daily about helping me find work. They would also take credit for jobs that we already had prior to even going there and say they placed us in those positions. (most were not even IT related) My credits would not even transfer to my community college so I had to start from scratch after I never got ONE job with this "degree" huge waste of time and money. DO NOT GO HERE YOU WILL REGRET IT! Go to a community college instead!!!
This school is a complete joke. If you're thinking of attending save yourself the time and money and look elsewhere. They teach you absolutely nothing, you have to teach yourself. I'm disgusted in the LPN program. The teachers are horrible it's like they grab anyone off the street and throw them in there to "teach" you. Pathetic. I wish I never even signed up, they trick you into coming here and don't even mention that graduation is an entire year after you finish the program. Go straight for your RN if you are interested in nursing. They degrade you and make you feel like a worthless piece of crap. After this school I am now depressed and have severe anxiety. No one gives a fuck if you pass or not all they want is your money. Financial aid is a joke they can't even tell you what you owe.. isn't that their job? Clinical is a joke also, all you do is CNA work and you're paying to do it when it should be them paying you. Overall this school fucking sucks! DO NOT GO TO LINCOLN TECH.
This is the worst school and a waste of money. They lie to get you in. They don't teach at all the teaches sit down and make you read from a book and never explain anything. When It comes time to do clinical work they do the bear minimum. You get into debt for no reason and then can't find a job for which you graduated for. They call and harasse you if you don't pay and typo keep your certificate.. would never recommend his school to anyone
WORST SCHOOL DO NOT GO they can not teach the teachers are unfair in specific the so called Mr.V you will hate how ignorant he is , this school will make you do all this book work to then only show you minimal skills and want to let you out to the real world with minor skills.
Attending this school has been the single worst mistake I've made in my life. I graduated with perfect attendance and a 3.95 GPA. When I graduated, career services only directed me to employers which were either offering only off-the-books employment or minimum wage. Financial services broke up my student loans into 5 different loans, some of which fell into default because I assumed that I was placed with only one servicer. So while making payments to only one servicer, another servicer held 3 of my 5 loans and they defaulted. I had been promised that the credits I was earning were transferable to colleges to continue my education further than a simple certificate, that was a lie. I was promised employment at a range of 35-45k per year easily upon graduating, that was a lie. I sat there paying for a weak education, at times having to teach basic math skills to the state paid students so that we could move on to a new subject while these state paid students attended for free and here I am saddled with $18k(mostly interest at this point) remaining of student loan debt that prevents me from continuing education, buying a new car, and even bars me from jobs related to the financial industry. The only good thing I came out of this school with was 2 new friends. Aside from them, this school was the biggest mistake of my life. Full of lies, full of broken promises, full of debt.
The worst experience, they told me from the beginning that they will able to help me in case that i don't pass any exam. Well, I passed all the test but no't one. They didn't let me know on time frame for them. They did it on purpose so when this frame time was over, you are no longer considered a student therefore you have to pay 2000 dollars again to take this class. They didn't give me the chance to take another exam like they offered me in the beginning. I don't have this money to pay therefore I cant find a job but I am in deep debt with 25,000 loan .and no career they should shut down this school like they did with ITT they are the same.
I thought going to this school would be a new start for me. I was so wrong. They lie to get you into the school. Then when you graduate you can't find a job. Now I'm in debt because I can't afford to pay loans and my house hold. Wish I would of never went.
PLEASE DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! If you plan on attending for anything in computers and do not have previous experince, this school is definitely not for you. It does not teach basics and it is not hands on (its reading chapters and taking test on them) But the most important thing is to tell you not to sign a contract with them.what they offer is an institutional loan and they expect to be paid as soon as you graduate or drop out. They do not care about why you can't pay but most of all In THE CONTRACT u sighn a promissory note stating that the account can be charged off at a 20% to the collection agency. By law the collection agency can charge 8-12%...but lincoln tech makes you sign this and does not even tell you, futher more this loan canot be consolidated or pushed back like a regular student loan. There are many reason not to go to this school...but the contract is the #1 reason!! This school is in the ruins,they are not making a profit because if you think about it, it is best to go to a county college. Please read the contract very carefully...this school is trying to stay afloat by taking advantage of their students. I am now attending moddlesex county college!
