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

but I made little rolls and then threw them into the air fryer with tomatoes and mozzerella and omg, life changing
@legallyybrunette: i add in egg white powder when doing french! it's the best and honestly they come out even fuller once you nail the baking time

(into the air fryer after they'd baked already)
@paulettebonafonte: that sounds lit, straight air frying dough might actually be pretty good too I kinda want to try it now haha
13:10
@StandUnderNone: see you this fall bitch :) so good
paulettebonafonte
13:11
@ThreePlantLemming: right? might have to do another batch and try them that way to see if they come out any different
@FarCoconut2717: I'm going to have to try that! because taking the temp for the sugar can be a pain in the ass lol

@ThreePlantLemming: valid. in my mind, the air fryer is like a grown up easy bake oven, just full of magic and whimsy
I’d so much rather have a gas stove than an air fryer though, I hate my electric cook top
I need fire
