Lincoln Tech Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (214)
I have been to this school twice. The first program I attended had an awful teacher who would take every possible point away she could, she did not like being a teacher you could tell. I called and called the schools administration office week after week trying to set up a time to go back and complete my program, they always said someone will be calling me back on Monday. Never happened. After my first experience went horribly wrong I don't know why I decided to come back. Mostly because there is no other schools teaching dental in my area. I am currently in my second to last mod and one thing i have a hard time with at this school is they switch the teachers. For about 5 or 6 mods i had an amazing teacher. She was always organized and ready to teach. She was hard on us sometimes but it honestly helped a lot. For my last two mods we switched to another teacher and it threw me off track because they have completely different teaching methods and Lincoln tech does not have a set schedule and set order and set rules. I asked the teacher over 7 times to go over some of our practice tests because the whole first mod we didn't and it's half way through the second mod and we are about to take our state exam for radiology! It's already stressful enough and now i'm here teaching myself.
I would not recommend LT to anyone the have crooked finical aid practices. They push you into taking a full course that does not prepare you to work in the field. They do not tell you that they teach in theory, so if you Don't already have a back round in this field the course is useless to you. I feel like I got scammed and now I am stuck with 14,000 in loans and not enough HVAC knowledge to go into the field. There financial aid practices should be looked in to by the FEDS. The teaching staff was lazy the equipment was old and the employment dept was full of misleading info after I graduated they would call me every week asking if I was working I was told that it didn't matter if I was working in the field just that I was working , so they could pump the employment graduate number. I would not recommend this school to anyone Lincoln tech union nj
I studied certification for EST at the Melrose Park, IL campus January-December 2007. The classes were great, and I learned a lot I did not know about electronics, and had a lot of fun learning in my classes. I went to class every day, had a 3.9 GPA, and passed all but 3 parts of my certification exam on the first try. At the time, we had excellent teachers in our department, and we did lots of hands-on work in every class. enjoyed the classes. The problems came after graduation. Because my mom was dying of cancer, and I was high in student loan debt, I had to move in with my sister and brother-in-law in Maryland. So I sought career placement from the Columbia, MD campus, which also has an EST program. A lot of the job interviews I went on did not hire me-not sure of the reason. Also, the tests I took for positions, such as the post office, required mechanical knowledge I was not taught in the EST program. I finally landed a job at Sears selling TV's. It paid very well, but I had to quit it 6 months later, because my mom passed away, and I could not function well emotionally in the position. I moved to hardlines MCA at Sears, as a result. I also contacted the NCCER to get my paper certification, but there was so much red tape, and NCCER kept losing my info. The NCCER is a joke of a certification company. As far as my student loans go, my mom's death settlement and my SSDI backpay helped me pay them off after 3 1/2 years, and I am happy to say, I owe no more money to Sallie Mae. In summary, I think I was trained well, but received very little help from Career Planning and Placement after I was done, and do not get a certification through the NCCER!
Horrible school. don't waste your time. The office staff is ridiculous they never answer or return calls and even the secretary is a pain and acts like you are bothering them. there are other schools go to one of them. I attended in 14/15 and the teacher was ok its just the support staff that is bad.
Current evening Practical Nursing student in my last term at Moorestown. I hear a lot of complaints, and I would have to disagree. Instructors are nice and educated. You do have to put the effort in and study, its a hard program. Other then that, Im completely satisfied with my education I received so far, and can't wait to take my NCLEX. One of the best organized Technical school around.
DO NOT waste your time and just as important do not WASTE your money!!!! The instructors and staff at the Lincoln Technical School in the Edison campus do NOT care. I asked for tutoring in my 3rd quarter and the instructor told me she does not have time. Although, there are signs posted everywhere about if you need tutoring ask!! She never taught, but read directly from the book, and showed slides of what the book in front of me says. If everyone got a question wrong she is suppose to go over the entire test and give points back, but never did. Also, tested us on chapters she did not read or go over. She was more interested in leaving early. Another instructor only read out of one book, although we had two books! She expected people to know 6 chapters entirely for the test but only concentrated the test on one chapter, and could not understand why students did not pass. Administration and financial aid is a complete JOKE!! The clinical rotation was a joke too!! We did more 1st quarter work, making beds, cleaning the patients in the very stinky nursing homes! Never saw the person who enrolled me in this school after signing up, financial aid took 2 weeks to get back to me, (almost missed the orientation) that should have been my first hint.! I did not pass 3rd quarter and was told I had to sit out for 6 months and study, then I could restart. BUT, they fail to inform that you will be withdrawn from the program, and student loans will start knocking at your door. (You must contact your financial institution and tell them you did not withdraw...VERY IMPORTANT!!! I learned that on my own.)There are NO supplies, there is NO tutoring, there is NO help from this school at all. Only the students who complain directly, multiple times a day to the Dean of nursing will pass. DO NOT TRUST THIS SCHOOL, DO NOT TRUST THE INSTRUCTORS, DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL AT ALL!!!!!!! GO TO A REAL SCHOOL AND GET A DEGREE!! LESSON LEARNED
Iam currently attending the Paramus campus and let me tell you , THE WORST , the teacher literally admitted to the student if she/he does not like you they will fail you out of spite , I was also told if work is being due 2 days later & you choose one of the 2 days to be absent for personal reasons they will purposely change the due date of the work to the date you are absent so you can get a 0 , also Iam attending night class and was told that every class during the night class are able to do their work at home & school also but my class , the class Iam currently in is not able to do any work at home . They also recently hired a new professor let me tell you , she's the worst she favors students and if your not in her favor be ready to retake the class ! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYBODY!
Ok so I went in to the Maryland Columbus campus in 2010 and if it's one thing the only decent instructor taught me, "its that your education will only come in handy if you seek it" but in other words this school is not for you then and I am certain it still holds that rep. If you are in get out now if you're stuck don't expect financial aid to help you or their joke of a job fair. I only got to see one offer out of my 2 years of dealing with school and even if you do get through it all you are better off not even putting it on your resume, trust me you will be the laughing stock of the trade you chose and I mean that literally save your money ask around and try to fill a helper roll even if it's only min. Hourly it's much cheaper and worth more than going to this joke.
Worst school possible. The teachers are spiteful and talk about how to be professional when they themselves are not. They do not plan ahead when it comes to emergencies so you will be sitting in the classroom for 3 hours doing absolutely nothing. If you leave they will do some 100 point quiz just in spite of you then will proceed to call you unprofessional. Please save your money and your time and don't bother coming to this school. Money is all they care about and they could care less if you pass or fail. The schools financial aid department is horrifying. The school is disgusting and moldy. If you do decide to come here I'm going to tell you right now. I TOLD YOU SO. Good luck. I hope you hear my warning.
Going here was the worst decision I ever made. The school does not offer the information you need to actually work in the field nor do they do it at a reasonable price for students. On top of all of that you get hounded relentlessly to make sure that you're paying your bill on time every time and make sure that you never have any problems. I broke my hand shortly after graduating I was unable to work for over a year and in between my workman's comp and unemployment payments there was a gap I explained this to Lincoln Technical Institute and they told me that I was still going to be considered delinquent and even though I've made payments on time every month since then they still continue to send past-due notices every single month. My suggestion to anyone looking into the school is to completely disregard this school and go with UTI you may spend more money but your education is a lot better than what you would receive at Lincoln Tech and the people dealing with that company are much more professional. I just spoke with someone from Lincoln Tech and the persons treated me like I was worthless.
