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

I just went UR2 at WFU. Wave might be coming.

A lot going against GULC too. WashU in the distance buying elite students left and right. Those would be HYS enrollees, and those schools in turn have to fill those slots. They will, but this stuff trickles down.
@highhopeslowgpa: my sun 3 gpa is right there with you haha
@highhopeslowgpa: UCLA will take you count on it
computer stuff? Sexy AF
I think Northwestern should get kicked out of the T14 for not existing, then GULC and UCLA both get those spots
admitting median candidates what a novel idea lol
@ThreePlantLemming: Fire LSAT score though! I believe in u
if only it were true :(

BC update: they are currently understaffed and don't have a firm date when they will release decisions. They also said we should expect some to come-in today but it's not guaranteed. Basically, they didn't say shit.

I think the fact we are seeing so many 75th median applicants to schools is because of the mayhem of last year and people playing it safe. This gives these schools a false sense of the ability to inflate medians another year in a row. In reality, these 75th median candidates will attend a better school and leave the other schools in the dust wondering what happened
@OneMillionTrout: haha I hope adcomms are as interested
@MrVet2020: thank u so much you're amazing
@MrVet2020: maybe they can let their surplus of students help
12:39
They probably fired a lot of people between today and yesterday lol. Because yesterday they were way more confident about the release of decisions.
I wonder if Adcomms knows its a problem and is ignoring it, or straight up doesn't know
Are these OSU's from today?
and i wish you a full scholly plus stipend at all your schools
But if a group of 0L's can figure it out, you'd assume they would too

OSU only centers and shrinks either 4.5 business weeks from a decision, or non-decision
