Student loans are the worst part of law school.

LSD is building a tool to make them a little better.

LSD is building a student loan portal that prioritizes students' needs. The portal is completely free for students and will help students to identify the loans that work best for them.

Pre-register for our portal below. Pre-registration helps us get more lenders to join, which means better rates for all.

Please sign in to pre-register

How does it work? 

Simply Put (kind of)

We run an auction between lenders for your business. Like eBay for loans, where lower rates are winners.

A little more detail

It's all automated, but it's a little bit like:

  • We get a bunch of lenders in a room
  • The lenders say what they can offer you
  • Then they go around again and try to beat each other by offering better terms
  • They keep going until we find the lender that will offer you the best terms

i think its funny how law schools consider an A- GPA average bad in the top30ish schools
statcheckerftw
14:52
so disgusting
@CanadaGoose: not sufficient for my top choices ;/
yeah get into the 2s before your start talking about ruining chances
Can’t have it all
14:52
@StressedLawDog: I think that’s a pretty cool GPA :)

in other news
Rey mysterio 3-6-9

the guy i like may be ghosting me
bro my GPA is literally Pi
14:52
i'd literally be so mad
14:53
@StressedLawDog: BRUH im sorry you feel that way but literally thats an incrediable GPA dont let the vail of T-14 or bust hardos make you feel less than
@mac484: lol ghosted by schools and ppl is rough
14:53
@mac484: My solution, not that you asked me for it, confront him and ask why he's ghosting you
Does anyone know if the percentiles for mid 170's have changed? It just seems like there's so many people with outrageously high lsats
14:53
@mac484: ghosting sucks
14:53
619 not 369 ?
14:53
i think i may
14:53
or he may be waiting for me to reach out
14:53
that also could be something
big key with GPA is just have it low enough that GPA medians at every school just arent even a consideration
@bboo: appreciate it yea I don’t wanna sound like an ass my perceptions are so skewed
bearbearbear
14:53
Yeah i think 171 was a lower percentile than before
Does Columbia take most people they interview?
14:53
also someone said it yesterday, so nice to just not have to worry about GPA medians because i am so below all of them
Not worth complaining I’m in a good position still
@Split-gineer: probably me haha, thats my mentality
Haha it is 619 crap
14:54
@StressedLawDog: its okay! you have your own standards for yourself!!! just in the game of life youre f*ing crushing it
