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

@rostem566 I'm KJD so I have no job and no prospects if I don't get in anywhere...

@roSTEM566: I've been frantically applying
@MrVet2020: i'm pissed for you
roSTEM566
12:03
@HungarianHorntail: I would definitely start searching as a fallback in case you don't like your prospects. Trust me, having a job is such a nice cushion and gives you time to R&R next cycle if you're not liking your options
I am getting so annoyed with no getting answers
12:04
@SickMinorLawDog: seriously 😒. I think I'm done with Boston schools!! But has been ignoring me since early October and BC straight up lied to my face

It's almost comedy how desperate schools are to maintain medians and increase their ranking. BC is lying to students so they don't withdraw while they try to be greedy af with LSAT and GPA
12:05
@SickMinorLawDog: they said, and I quote, "if your application went under review between last Friday and today, you shall hear from us tomorrow"
Monkeymammoth

why would they update to say next few weeks if theres a wave today
