Student loans are the worst part of law school.
LSD is building a tool to make them a little better.
Please sign in to pre-register
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.
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
