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

If BC was so blatant with their lies then why wouldn't NDLS be? I just dont understand. Im totally fine with you not giving me a timeline but dont give me one and then change it last second
asymmetric
12:08

GoDawgsLaw1980
12:08

@GoDawgsLaw1980: few weeks
Monkeymammoth
12:08

Mine says next few
I think everyone's is changing to "next few weeks"
ForTheShoe

"within the next few weeks"
It originally changed to 4-6 weeks and then changed to next few weeks
asymmetric
12:08
apparently they cahnged it to 4-6 weeks first for everyone, then changed THAT to next few weeks
so there were two changes back to back

asymmetric
12:09

asymmetric
