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

@mdr-5: curious if you applied to NDLS and if you've had any movement. I applied, went complete early Dec and have had zero date change even tho I got the Jan decision email. Kinda worried this means auto R
15:51
i still haven't gotten an email, just the status checker with the wl form
For those applying to Columbia we might hear something in 9 minutes or in 1 hour

how do u know
does anyone know if UCLA's employment outcomes are decent compared to the other T14 schools? I've heard they have to compete with USC, Berkeley, Stanford and sometimes it becomes tough to get a good job

no news good news
@ThreeHurriedOriole: no problem, this website and reddit are decent resources, same with lawschooltransparency. at the end of the day though its your application process and your career, so try and block out the outside noise when making a decision
