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

DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:19

if adcomms could label their promotional emails clearly in the subject line it would save me lots of agony
InfamousPhobicWalrus
16:20
doubt that person will go to gulc though
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:20
it should be like PROMO: jdiojasdioa
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:20
@InfamousPhobicWalrus: I feel like they have to have demonstrated interest or they would have considered YP since they
I sense a disturbance in the force, like my GULC application called out for help and was suddenly silenced
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:20
have denied people with similar stats
MaddObscure
16:20
they're actually sending you e-mails? :(
paulettebonafonte
16:21
nebraska sent me an email titled "the whole package' and that nearly gave me a heart attack
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:21
tbh I'd rather hear nothing than have my heart stop once an hour from a promo email
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:21
that's just CRUEL
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:21
fml missed the GULC wave too
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:21
same, no wave for me
16:21
all my status checkers have errors and i can't log in to any of the actual status checker pages
16:21
anyone else uhhhhhhh have this problem
try a different browser / your phone
cybernothing
16:22
it happens sporadically for me. Usually is fixed in a few minutes
I've noticed it does that when a lot of activity is happening. Ppl checking statuses/ schools doing who knows what
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:23
yeah mine is doing the same but not the first time it's happened
16:23
still not working, thats weird
16:23
even for the school websites? wild
16:23
this is shaping up to be a big day
yeah well over 200 decisions, damn
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:24
@FRML: selfishly the worst feeling when it's a big day but you haven't been part of the party
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:24
obviously happy for everyone but damn this shit sucks
LexLaw
16:24
@OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine: yeah I've had 0 movement today
Decision made at UWisc
LexLaw
16:24
but congrats to all those As
whenever it's happened for me usually a few people got a decision from a school so I'm guessing everyone is trying to check their status
@DidacticUnderstoodCivet: I’ve been getting Happy Birthday emails from schools I didn’t even apply to…
MaddObscure
16:24
wow lol
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:25
when the GULC wave started just now there was a Gtown ad in my gmail promotions folder fml lol
LexLaw
16:25
maybe Duke will go wild and end the day with an A wave
MaddObscure
16:26
soon we'll be getting promo flyers on our car windshields
159 As today
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:26
I think they're gonna hold off until they're number 1 in NCAA again
Nice
16:26
God i hope so (at least if there is one with me in it uwu)
16:26

OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:26

LexLaw
16:26
@NO6300: you never know, that A yesterday was pretty late in the day
LexLaw
16:27
Dukeee, Wakeee, UNC where are youu
anoncat
16:27
NC doesn't exist anymore @LexLaw
anoncat
16:28
It's a myth, was absorbed into the atlantic following the Civil War
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:28
The Lost Colony except the whole state and it just happened
16:28
@LexLaw: dont expect WFU to even breathe until late Jan
LexLaw
16:28
and everyone including me who lives in the state has been brainwashed to think we still exist
It's interesting how small that GULC wave appears to have been, I was expecting something more
LexLaw
16:29
@FRML: the moved me into review last month so maybe they'll give us a lil Christmas gift
LexLaw
16:29
*they
16:29
I suppose so. Same here I believe
16:29
yeah went UR 2 weeks ago
My WFU date has been gone for like a week now
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:30
@LTCommanderLSData: that also happened to me lmao
LexLaw
16:30
mine has been gone for like 3 weeks
LexLaw
16:30
and just says "under review"
LexLaw
16:30
so idk what's up with that
16:30
same I dont have a status date
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:31
it's at the point where I'm getting promo emails in my dreams
16:31
they didnt really put anyone UR until around this time last year so who knows
LexLaw
16:31
yeah that's what I saw too so maybe next week before break they'll give us some As
16:31
maybe they will bestow upon me an A with $$$$ the way the wisemen bestowed gifts on the infant savior on christmas day
Blarghblawlaw
16:31
this process is so horrible
Blarghblawlaw
16:31
so so so horrible
16:31

Hamotron
16:32
today is so big and I still haven't had anything
16:32
but duke ur3 and unc complete too
all y'all getting into Wisconsin, was it by email or status checker?
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:32
I kind of wish it was like undergrad where you find out all on the same day
LowkeyHarveySpecter
16:32
@NO6300: mine says the same
LexLaw
16:32
@FRML: I would cry if I got full $$$$ from WF
@Hamotron: same
16:32
I would cry if i got any from NC
16:32
@FestiveLackadaisicalFousek: email

16:32
so fucking bad
LexLaw
16:32
@NO6300: it will come friend
16:32
great state in my opinion
LowkeyHarveySpecter
16:33
Do you guys know if wake does interviews?
Apparently the criteria for decisions every day for the past month is to simply be a school I have not applied to
16:33
@LexLaw: wait what are your stats?
16:34
wait I just stalked you, I would be shocked if you didnt get $$$$
LexLaw
16:34
lmao how did you stalk me bahaha
LexLaw
16:34
I would def love that esp being instate
16:34
just sorted by name on the WF page
WonderProd
16:34
A pretty decent day for results honestly
WonderProd
16:34
Almost 250 already
NonchalantJoyousJellyfish
16:35
Tbh kinda crazy I didn’t get dinged from Yale with a sub 3.5 👀
WonderProd
16:35
None for me though 😞
LexLaw
16:35
You'll def get some money too with your stats
16:35
Yeah last year everyone with my stats who got in got offered $$$$
16:35
except 1 whose GPA is like .2 below mine
LexLaw
16:35
That would be wild, would you go if you got that over UMN?
16:35
@NonchalantJoyousJellyfish: ooh you must've made committee review congrats!
LexLaw
16:35
I know you were really into UMN
16:36
If i had a $$$$ at WF i would prefer that to $$ at MN
16:36
actually more like $.75
LexLaw
16:36
yeah UMN was really confusing to me yesterday
16:37
really lowballed myself and a few others and WL'd people at their medians w
16:37
strange move
16:37
i know they didnt have a big jump with the bubble last year so maybe they are gunning
16:37
who knows
16:37
@LowkeyHarveySpecter: 99% sure wake does not do interviews
Feed Raymond My Leg
LexLaw
16:37
Yeah I was shocked by who they WL/rejecting, I missed the wave but idk how I'm gonna do at this point
LowkeyHarveySpecter
16:38
@Unamused: ok gotcha thank you
NonchalantJoyousJellyfish
16:38
@TroutLawyer: perfect - now they can reject me in March instead of December 😅
16:38
@LowkeyHarveySpecter: I think you can request one if waitlisted, but that's about as much as I recall
16:39
@NonchalantJoyousJellyfish: you never know pal
LowkeyHarveySpecter
16:39
ahhh interesting, thank you :)
16:39
Not that many schools actually do interviews I feel like
For the UT Kira, can you use pen and paper to plan out your responses or no?
WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar
16:40
Anyone know about UGA ED waves?
Are there any graphs of law school class sizes over time? I’m wondering if law schools have adjusted class sizes in proportion to applicants, but I’m afraid it hasn’t worked out that way lol
MarshaHew
16:41
@WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar: I dont know if they have a set wave.. seems like they trickle people in on a regular basis. I received a decision but applied RD
WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar
16:41
I applied 9/01 ED and haven't heard... not looking good
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:41
alrighty time for my evening commute, which I now strangely look forward to bc it's the only time I physically can't check statuses.
16:42
@FRML From what I've seen, the only real merit to an interview for the school would be to get asense for how well a canidate will do in their job interviews. A lot of schools don't put huge efforts into career services up front so it's not surprising we don't see interviews all that often.
16:42
you can't check statuses in your sleep
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:42
in my dreams I can!
OverjoyedAbsentPorcupine
16:42
*nightmares
MarshaHew
16:42
@WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar: are you IS?
MarshaHew
16:43
Does anyone know when GULC sends out scholly info?
WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar
16:43
Yes I am. Went for undergrad there also. @MarshaHew
MarshaHew
16:44
@WholesaleAstonishingCaterpillar: ah okay, maybe they will have an ED wave but not RD. Sorry I'm not more help. I found out very quickly after I went UR but I applied 10/4
DonnieDarko
16:45
are gulc emails rolling today or was this wave all at once
16:46
@DonnieDarko: i think they are usually all at once? someone correct me if I'm wrong
@MarshaHew: historically feb-march
VivianKensington
16:48
did anyone else miss the YLS R wave but is still quaking lmao
VivianKensington
16:48
like the feeling that an R is now impending..
next R wave is usually in march @viviankensington
Relieved I missed the R wave but I also haven’t applied
asymmetric
16:49
Wouldn’t schools that teach via case method like an interview to see how you would contribute to the collaborative learning environment in the classroom?
VivianKensington
16:49
i looked at LSD from last year and it looks like there were also one in january
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:49
literally just got an email where the subject line was "scholarships and financial aid" and was promo
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:49
they're really testing me
@UniqueSuccotash: same, phew am i right
those are usually the people who applied in nov/dec tho!
today's wabes usually only hit the sept/oct applicants
and then in march they do a big release of all folks who went to faculty review
MarshaHew
16:50
@JoyousCeruleanHummingbird: thank you!!
16:50
Turning off CAS is the biggest lie in the world. Mississippi College won’t stop emailing me
16:50
my law firm is sending a subpoena to LSAC for records in a case lol, just saw it
VivianKensington
16:50
ohhh interesting i didn't know that
VivianKensington
16:50
@JoyousCeruleanHummingbird: thanks!
VivianKensington
16:51
so if i applied in october i will either (a) get a good decision at any random point in time or (b) a R/WL in march?
i refuse to turn off CRS bc i like feeling wanted
is that insane? yes or yes
@HoagieRoll: is it an antitrust suit? lmao
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:52
tired: paying LSAC to apply to law schools
@StandUnderNone: Yes
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:52
wired: antitrust suit against LSAC with your new law degree
Every day I get emails that are like "consider our law school" and I'm like no
OneRampantFrigatebird
16:53
It's always like the same two law schools that spam me each day
i get lots of charleston, ole miss, and penn state
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:53
if there was an LSAC for undergrad I feel like it def wouldn't fly
Richmond is in my inbox all day
VivianKensington
16:54
@DidacticUnderstoodCivet: college board is also a scam
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:54
@VivianKensington: so true but I feel like you don't have to rely on them nearly as much for undergrad admissions
do people's berkeley addresses go long before acceptances?
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:55
I can just imagine the meeting where someone at LSAC was like "I know! We should charge them to process their own records!" and everyone cheered
16:56
holy I just figured out how to use the automated status checkers
16:56
whole new world
VivianKensington
16:57
@rkolawadmit: i wish i hadn't figured out automated status checkers
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:57
^^
VivianKensington
16:57
i feel like a rat in a psych experiment
16:57
is there something bad about them haha
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:57
literally since I figured mine out I've had zero updates
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:57
just addictive
VivianKensington
16:57
@rkolawadmit: i think it has made me more neurotic than i otherwise would have been
VivianKensington
16:57
but also it's my own fault and i should just show restraint
16:57
ooooh okay yeah, i can see this quickly becoming not stellar lol
I don't use the automated status checkers
16:58
@VivianKensington: sick name btw, justice for vivian kensington
VivianKensington
16:58
@rkolawadmit: <3
DidacticUnderstoodCivet
16:58
I'd be less neurotic if it sent me an email every time I had an update but instead I'm physically refreshing every 20 min
2pm in the west. 5pm in the east. It's time for west coast waves!
16:58
@VivianKensington: you made committee review you'll be fine! def still have a shot at YLS
VivianKensington
16:59
@TroutLawyer: quaking in my boots
16:59
I'm quaking knowing I'm messaging a future Yale student rn

VivianKensington
