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

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
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

Not worth complaining I’m in a good position still
