Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (227)
I can not stand this school i was suppose to be finishing my last mod in the pharmacy tech class today and there tyna fail me in one of my classes becaues of my attendance. i only missed 1 day and was late alot but the kids who miss 4 or 5 days dont get hassled jus because they have a note and this just doesnt make sense to me they can miss 4 or 5 full days nd because im late i have to fail wen all i get is A's and B's and was on the deans list like this is just really crazy to me
they teach us stuff we dont even need to know to work in the pharmacy half of the time we was in class we was doing nothing. everytime i tell people i go to lincoln for pharmacy tech they tell me im wasting my time and its ridiculous that we have to pay all that money when they dont teach us what we should know and how they can just fail you because of attendance makes no sense
Their policy's are bent for some and not othere, you spend as much as you would on 2 years at a community collage. the teachers get into the drama of their students. The worst decision i have ever made in my life was going to this school! not to mention when you get out, nobody wants to hire you b/c of the school's reputation.
This school is not good anyone that goes to Lincoln Tech Brockton Campus will waste their time and money
Lets begin with i am currently enrolled in the LPN course 15 month program at Lincoln tech.
1. They said the credit would transfer- they do not
2. They lied to us about the 15 months and our graduation date which was suppose to be in September and now it is in the end of October making it a 16 month program.
3. They promised Hosipital clinic setting, there are no hosipital clinic sites.
4. They hire teacher that are nurses with no teaching experience, go on careerbuilder.com and the add will even state you just need your BSN no teaching experience required.
5. They do not let student who graduate the course who they think will not pass the state board take the test, due to the alarming rate of failing graduates from Lincoln tect and actucally recieved a warning from the state that the school may be put on suspension due the failure rate.
6. Also even if you pass the course and they do think you will pass the state test they wait forever to mail off your registration, and if a student asks to do it themself they refuse to give you, your school records.
7. Due to the untimely manner in which you are even registered to that the state test due to the school, your school loans are now trying to collect before you even take the test, and in nj if 6 months after you graduate, thats bad.
8. The teacher having no teaching experence teach from outlines and books, have no leason plans.
9. the best is how the teacher will actucally degrade the students, telling them they won't make it, and how they don't like there face, i have no idea how that related to nursing. Also teacher are suppose to encourage student not put them down.
I was really excited to start my classes for medical assisting in Lincoln tech. I started school and then realized that i made the biggest mistake ever i got suckered into 17,000 for no reason! they suck!!
and then i tried transferring to a school in St.Petersburg and then I all of a sudden owe them almost $2,000 because i didn't finish! I was making a transfer for gods sake...now I'm in more debt then i have ever been in my life! THANKS TO THAT DUMB SCHOOL!
I'll keep this short and sweet-the 1 star rating speaks for itself. I'm currently attending, 3 months from graduating and a straight A student-so I'm not complaining just because I'm bitter or incompetant and looking for a scapegoat
This school is predatory, it preys on the vulnerable-the poor, the uneducated, the desperate. I'm not ashamed to include myself in that group-I chose Lincoln tech because I was a single mom tired of working dead end jobs and wanted to pursue a career in nursing to provide a future for my daughter and make her proud. I had no knowledge about the healthcare industry so I was easily lured into this Mickey mouse farce posing as a college-that was my mistake, and I'm paying the ultimate price.
I've received almost no hands on training (unless you consider changing bed pans in a nursing home training) I have no job prospects in sight and tens of thousands of dollars in financial aid waiting for me when I graduate.
I'm not gonna throw a pity party for myself-I'm a grown woman, I should have done my research before I signed my life away on that dotted line. But I do hope that anyone who reads this will take a moment to reconsider their choice if they are even entertaining the thought of attending. Don't make the mistake I did-go for your RN through the community college sytem. It takes longer but it's a fraction of the cost and well worth it in the end!
My daughter goes to LT and is in the nursing program. I have no clue what the heck you all are talking about. Maybe all the other programs arent as good as the nurse program but the school is fine. She will be grad in June 2010.
She has worked very hard to get where she is, They have helped her with her resume and much more. She has tried to get into the college nurse programns but they all have a waiting list. She has learned so much from the teachers there and they are willing to teach. I know she will get a great job. Yes she has to pass her nclecs if thats how you say and spell it. But I know she will.
She also knows many girls that are in the college program for four yrs now and in their last yr have just now went to clinicals as she has been doing them for a yr now. Its what you take out of a program that works. Two of her clinical teachers have written her great letters to hand in with her resume.
She attends the Edsion school and yes there are some people that do cheat but she dosent and is doing great. Thank You LT for being a great school. Keep up the great work. And they also dont take crap you miss so many days you are out and thats fare.
When it comes to online learning, the teachers, advisors are knowledgeable and helpful. They are with you every step of the way. I would highly recommend the school to anyone thinking about Medical Billing. Check with your advisor as often as you can and ask what to do after you graduate. They will direct you exactly how you need to be directed in other to start you career after graduation.
I ATTENDED LTI, STARTED IN SEPTEMBER. I AM CURRENTLY ON EXTERNSHIP AND I AM VERY PROUD TO SAY THAT I USED A SEAT IN LINCOLNTECH. IF YOU PEOPLE THAT HAD SUCH A BAD EXPERIENCE WOULD HAVE BEEN IN CLASS, STUDIED, DID YOUR HOMEWORK, STAYED QUITE WHILE THE INSTRUCTOR WAS GIVING CLASS, INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN SOME HELP, INSTEAD OF CHEATING IN THE TESTS, WELL I THINK YOU GET MY POINT.
YOU WOULD NOT BE SAYING ALL THE BULL YOU ARE NOW. IN ORDER TO GET A JOB YOU NEED TO LOOK FOR IT. YOUUUUUUUUUUU NEED TO BE MORE PROFESSIONAL, OH LOOK THEIR IS THAT WORD, YES PROFESSIONAL. CLOSE YOUR MOUTH WISE UP AND DON'T TAKE OTHERS FUTURES BECAUSE YOUUUUUUUUU DID NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT WAS PUT IN YOUR HAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a great time, i do recomend the school. i also recommend that you be mature pay attention, and be there. Don't occupy that seat if you are really not going to appreciated it. Their are others out there that really do want to do something with their lifes but because someone did not use that chair wisely they lost the opportunity.
Don't point at others point at yourself. IT'S ALL IN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
I attened the lincoln campus in October 2007 for Medical billing and coding. This course was a joke! I had teachers teaching us MediSoft (the EMR program taught) who literaly didnt know how ot turn on the computers!
That same teacher taught our coding class and gave no information worth while for the class, like many other similar complaints on this site, we (our class) had to teach ourselves. She handed us the CPT and ICD9 coding books and told us to read the front of them they explain themselves!
The typing class we had was another story...we actually had one girl in the class who literally completed the class only typing appx 10 words per minute...she got an A in the class when the requirement was 30 words per minute or better to pass let alone get an A. How fair was that to her? How marketable do you think they made her?
The computer class we had...the teacher told us that the book (we paid for in the tuition) was useless and as good as bathroom reading material. And oh by the way, he spent more time away from our class then in it. He arrived 15-20 minutes late EVERY class and left the class all to often there after.
My medical terminology class...what a joke the teachers actual comment to the class..."you will have to bear with me I have trouble pronouncing some of these terms myself...what the hek was she doing teaching terminology??? Again..we as a class stuck together and taught ourselves much of what we learned.
In all honesty it seems that ANYONE can teach there at Lincoln Tech. I addressed my concerns to the head of the Allied Health Dept there, only to be told that OH dont be spiteful, because it will all come back at you if you persue any litigation.
Again I addressed my concerns, and my classmates wanted to as well, the director refused to meet with us as a group. I had to meet with him alone, and got no where, he did nothing at all to correct the problem.
And the kicker...included in the tuition is a fee for taking the CCA exam to become certified (to which they claim they prepare you for). Lincoln Tech is supposed to send in the paperwork to AHIMA some how it mysteriously got lost for everyone in my class not once but twice...needless to say none of us (about 20 students) are certified to this day.
its as if we attended the school for nothing when we call the school we get NO response the last day of class the head of the dept took us in a room and told us "I know you guys got an unfair shake here and we are willing to let your class take the entire program again at no cost to any of you".
None of us wanted to, b/c we didnt have another 14 months to spare going to school we had bills and familys to take care of, when I told them I wanted a refund for the "unfair shake" of classes they called classes...that was not an option for them..
the Director literally said he will see me in court if thats the path I choose. STAY AWAY from this place I cant even refer to it as a school its unfair that they are allowed to receive money for students from government loans and funding when they are ROBBING the American ppl of a fair education for the money we are spending!!!
