Inquiring Student - 7/22/2019
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019
"I called the Lincoln Tech Somerville, Massachusetts location to inquire about the medical assisting program and an advisor in admissions was very rude, sarcastic (he laughed at me beneath his breath), abrupt and he had a total lack of etiquette in how to conduct a conversation with me as a potential student. He did not want to answer any of my questions and wanted to treat our conversation as a quick chit chat. He accused me of having a hang up when I asked the specifics about the program. I was severely unimpressed and turned off by his lack of enthusiasm to even talk with me. He acted like I was some uneducated random looking to inquire about a program that I obviously couldnt possibly afford because I mentioned applying for FASFA. He was very quick to act as if no details about the program could be discussed until he met me, as if it was a chore to tell me about any of the specifics about the admissions process. He clearly does not need to be in this line of work. I was so turned off by our conversation that I called back to decline my appointment with their admissions department. I will be taking my business elsewhere. He was a complete unimpressive representation. His rudeness, abruptness, lack of decency to even formulate a productive, decent informative conversation trickles down from somewhere. I give this school 5 thumbs down."

"A professional environment that requires a professional attitude. I havent graduated yet but Im sure Im on my way thanks in part to the staff members at Lincoln tech. It would be efficient if there were a more in depth screening process in order to ensure the quality of student matches the facilities of Lincoln tech."

"DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY IN THIS SCHOOL!! I wish I would of read the reviews before coming to this school. This school could careless about the students. They make it seem like the school is the best and you get this and that but it's all an act just to get you to enroll. They dont put effort into working with the students. The school president Mr.Dawkins does not do anything at that school. Hes never involved with the students and barely engages with them and not even abit concerned about them. You never see him unless it's time for him to promote the school to get more students enrolled and trying to show as if he is involved. They only give you a certain amount of time you can miss school or be late for each class. If you miss all those minutes, you have to retake the class no matter what your grade is and have your graduation date pushed back, and you have to pay an extra thousands of dollars to retake the class. They dont care if your sick, If your mourning, if you dont have nobody to watch your kids, nothing, they still take that time away that you missed, and you only get to do the work that you missed IF you have a excuse but your grade still goes down. The grading system they have is horrible. You could have gotten 80 to 95of your assignments passed but it only moves your grade THE MOST 5 but if you get low grade on a assignment or did alright you grade drops drastically. They rather you fail and repeat a class instead of actually passing the class to make more money off of you. They have us paying for books but the classes dont use the books. Everything is done on the computer, the text book is on the computer. They lack heat in the school. They put the heat on the lowest setting. So if your cold, you HAVE to buy a Lincoln tech jacket. They wont let you wear your own or sweater and if you can't afford to buy they jacket at the moment you either get suspend or asked to leave the school. They barely want to spend money on new tools and equipment. We have to use old equipment that's been reused and broken apart for months and years, and have missing tools. They bought a "few" new tools a few months ago because students were complaining about it. Students made petitions with that school and have meetings with the staff to hear students out on how they can make the school better but they never changed anything or comprised with what some students tried asking for. Many students dropped from this school because of reasons like these, and even staff has left that school because of how they are treated. This school dosnt think we are adults that have big responsibilities we are sacrificing to be apart of that school. They think we are children and most times treat students as if we are. The female staff in the education department let some guys get away with certain things that the school says are against the rules but when it came to me, a female student, they bug me about every little thing. Some instructors in that school brag and are proud that they are failing students. It's so unprofessional and sad.I've had an instructor tell me and other students he doesn't care about us or our grades. That just shows that this school could careless about you. The higher up staff and some instructors are friends on a personal level and will side more with each other than the students. They also make graduating students to write a "good review" about them. As long as they are receiving money from you, and raising tuition like its nothing, they just sit back and enjoy it all while students are suffering because of the school."

Jenny U. Hishikawa - 6/20/2019
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019
"The Medical Assistant Program that Lincoln Technical School offers prepared me to have a rewarding career in the medical field. I learned many different skills that are beneficial to me and to the patients. The instructors taught me how to perform EKG, CPR, and how to draw blood and through the process I became certified on all of these. Career Services (Debra Williams) was so helpful in locating a job for me. She never gave up on me until I finally landed a job that I really wanted. The staff were always helpful and very professional. The instructors were knowledgeable on the subjects."

"Im sorry but i waseted my money if you cant teach youreself youre going to have a hard time. They put you in the class room for 2 days then youre on your own theres one techer for every 30 students. I went thru the entire program and luckly got a job on my own. There are no supplies for students we get yelled at for being late when teachers dont show up on time go to another school and save your money. You can learn the same things on the internet its 2019."

Current welding student - 5/8/2019
Degree: Welding
Graduation Year: 2019
"If you are considering going to trade school for welding, Lincoln Tech in East Windsor is not the school for you. I am currently a student at this school and it is completely a waste of time and money. The instructors barely help when you can find them and trying to ask them to do something for you is like pulling teeth. In hindsight I wouldn't have wasted my $25,000 that I pay out of pocket for this scam. I would have bought welding machines and supplies and learned off of YouTube. That's basically what we have to do here anyway. It's a joke. They run low on supplies often, most likely because the guy in charge gets a bonus or something if they save money. Unfortunately I'm stuck in this course because I paid for it already. I plan on calling OSHA on the school because the ventilation system barely works and you end up sucking on fumes The entire time. I can almost guarantee the oxygen levels barely at 19%. The sinks and bathrooms in the shop both don't work or are filthy nasty. The hand washing stations in the shop have been broken since I've been here and two of the three urinals have garbage bags over them because they don't work. I don't blame the instructors, it's really poorly managed. With Good management you get good instructors. With bad management you get instructors that just don't care. The instructors complain often around their students about the mismanagement and each other. Also, don't get the impression that you are going to graduate with any welding certifications. Unless you fork out another $700-$1200 bucks for a private inspector which they just began offering. Basically, this is how it goes. Here's a welder, here's some metal but don't go crazy on it because we don't have enough for everyone, now go learn off the internet. That's it in a nutshell. If you are a parent of a prospective student do not waste your hard earned money at this school. I could have paid half as much hiring some guy to show me one on one. This isn't me going off on the school because of bad grades or because of drama, I'm one of the better students. I am just frustrated with the amount of money I pay for the lack of an education. They only teach the very basic fundamentals and you'll leave still needing to learn a lot about the trade and to get your certs."

"Columbia MD campus. Great instructors but I feel like I wasted a year of my life. I ended up getting a job there working in the education office. It was a great work environment but not a good learning environment. Most of the instructors are very nice and try to explain atuff in terms you would understand."

"DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! I wasted a whole year and I barely learned anything. Charge you 20,000 for tuition and extra s***. Plus you owed more money and that is sketchy as hell because almost everyone had to pay money out of their pocket. Each month was just one topic and the the next month you will go to a whole new topic. You did not learn anything at all. Barely any hands on clinicals. Everything was done by the computer so your eyes will burn!! This school is so close to closing down because they do not improve at all. No heaters when it is cold outside, teachers barely taught anything. A lot of people keep dropping out because this program is not good at all. At all the job fairs they had only 3 hospitals would go to the school and talk to medical assistants. Autos had more employers than the medical assistants. This school is a joke, sketchy,overpriced."

"Go there to experience the best hands on teaching and meet life long friends who can help you network through your field. You can always go back and get tours to see how much they have advanced. It was an awesome experience for me and I would do it all over."
