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

someone correct me if I'm wrong but would a law school with a reduced class size have more scholarships to give out?
Oh from yesterday nvm

@DontPay4LawSchool: prob more $/asmitted srudent yeah
@DontPay4LawSchool: possibly, but probably not bc they're making less in tuition
Depends on if they think they can buy their way to new medians and if that is worth it

I'm specifically thinking of BC. If it is related to tuition, I imagine money from last year would possibly carry over. If I had to guess it would probably remain the same
