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

Like GW is way more selective this year than they were during the "hardest cycle ever"
23:55
yes its def worse than last bc last year it was really only bad for later applicants
23:55
GW is shrinking their class size
23:55

Honestly, law school is just becoming a joke. USNEWS rankings should just be abolished. Let the 509s help students decide where to go. :v
