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

trying to maintain #14?
12:33
I really think they will fight tooth and nail to do it.
I feel like Gtown will be aggressive too... to reclaim their spot haha
Bizarre that Chunky was rejected from Mich
Reporting my favorite thing to come out of r/LSA
Picture this: A median student at Syracuse or Santa Clara or Texas Tech or University of Nebraska (depending on your geographic locale). 158 LSAT, 3.5 GPA. How smart do you think they are? Is the average lawyer all that impressive? I, for one, have a 167 and a 4.0 in a STEM field. That's literally my only large accomplishment. I would call myself above average in IQ, but not by a huge amount.

I'm not gonna lie, I think the faculty surveys might be hurting GULC.
@CanadaGoose: and then they had those scandals left and right
@CanadaGoose: maybe thats why corny is acting that way too, because they are increasingly moving down and now are trying to t3 it to save their lives
12:35
@NotTodaySatan: GULC class size is big. I think they might get 170, but I really think 171 like last year is almost impossible.

I just want Texas solidly in the T-14, they deserve it
Tbf, I have worked for and with lawyers who are truly not very smart haha
@FutureMarshallErikson: yes, someone supposedly above the average iq. A masterpiece of a post
turning on my ringer for the 800th day in a row
@CanadaGoose: lol last year in general is impossible. for sure we are going to see more WaitList movement than usual (at least that is what I tell myself) with all of these schools shooting their shot way too high lol
@NotTodaySatan: Gotta shoot your shot
aim high kings and queens
don't settle
thats why I said eff it and applied to Harvard and Stanford... fully aware im getting the dong lol
