    So I am completing FASTLoans right now and choosing my lender for the unsubsidized portion of my loan. I click on the drop-down menu and there are many dozens of lenders. Where can find info on the following for the lender w/o having to spend hours looking for info on their websites:

    -how are loans capitalized? monthly quarterly etc.
    -do they have a fixed rate
    -do they offer a residency and relocation loan for the 4th year med students?

    Also, if you chose your lender already, please let me know which one you chose. thanks!

    There are already at least 2 threads here with that info.

    Also, on unsubsidized Stafford loans, interest is only capitalized once: when the loan enters repayment. Once the loan enters repayment, the interest is likely compounded monthly, but I suppose that could vary with lender.
