I went here for about 4 months. I used my GI Bill to go here and drove over an hour each way to get here since living in the dorms wasn't an option because I already own my own house. Let's start with the claims they make..."we are the Harvard of tech schools" we are "continuing an NADC (Nashville Auto Diesel College) tradition". Those claims are false. NADC was a very well known and respected college and once Lincoln Tech took over it went from preparing students for future employment to just trying to turn as big of a profit as quickly as possible. Unfortunately they are still operating on the coattails of NADC but slowly the employers are realizing this which is why the career fairs are getting smaller and smaller. Even the instructors who were there when it was NADC will tell you that it has drastically gone downhill since being bought out by Lincoln Tech. When they recruit you they make it sound like it is the best tech school available and they show you pictures of the facility which must be other Lincoln Tech facilities because they are much nicer than anything you will ever see on this campus. The tuition is sky high and the education you get for it is not worth it. They will tell you that you will spend 80% of your time in the shop getting hands on training but it is more like 5%. One of the entire classes we nicknamed "youtube class" because the instructor refused to teach even when you asked a question so we basically taught ourselves by watching youtube and google. After leaving Lincoln Tech I enrolled in a smaller tech school where we are in the shop getting hands on training almost all of the time with the exception of exams. If you go to Lincoln Tech you will pay enormous amounts of money and leave with a piece of paper that says you know what you are doing but you wont. When a future employer asks you if you know how to do something you'll be able to say "I don't know how to do it but I've watched videos on it." That's about all you will get out of it. Seriously, save your money, listen to the reviews, do your research, and find a smaller tech school where you or your child will actually get some experience and real world training that will be vital for them when entering the workforce.

So I'm halfway into my schooling. I'm not here to say anyone is wrong or right I'm just here to give my opinion of the school. Firstly location, People aren't wrong when they say it's in a more rugged part of town. It's a 2 minute drive from downtown. So what do you expect from a place so close to downtown. Secondly, the dormitories are very outdated but have been very well kept here as of late. Maintenance is a little slow blut that is because they have so many other people to worry about. Yes the college is expensive, but you get out what you put in. The instructors I've had are more than willing to help you with any problems you have and answer any questions. There is a problem still with people stealing but security has been bumped up and there is always at least one police car cruising around Douglas on campus or on Gallatin road. Overall school is decent just very old. Again you get what you pay for. But the food is not mamma's cooking so it's not the best. Don't expect a five star restaurant. If you work hard you'll do great.

I was super interested in going to the school. I’m practically homeless trying to get my life together and I’ve explained this to multiple people at this institution. No one is willing to waive their application fee. I’ve talked to three different individuals from the recruiters to the admissions staff at the local office.

I am appalled that you all claims offer scholarships But can’t even waive a homeless person’s $25 application fee. That is completely deplorable and I would never ever consider the school again. The only kind of assistance is if I had a high school counselor request a waiver for me. Which is completely repulsive because there are adults who are on their last leg who need this more than a high school senior does

ZERO STARS!!!! A bunch of crooks who will say what they need to in order to get your money. Not kidding. I wish I had read the reviews before we signed my son up because they're dead on. Teachers can't/don't want to teach...schedules were not what we were told and class structure is not conducive to learning. They wouldn't give my son credit for his two ASE's (which the rep said they would), he had no dorm - even though we paid the deposit, the food was not worth the $30 a day...and I could go on and on! My son got so disillusioned, he left after 2 months. They destroyed his passion for auto mechanics AND had the audacity to send a bill for almost $12,000!!!Read the reviews! Go somewhere else so you or your child has a positive experience and ends up with a successful career.

This school is a joke!! My son attended this school for 2 weeks and was charged 10,000. They give you a great song and dance about their school and once money is released to the school you are nobody to them. They make you think they have great job placement only to find out they don't because they are not an accredited school!! Please, I REPEAT PLEASE do not waste your time nor money on this place!!
