    I was comparing a few suggested lender choices for my cost of attendance. It seems like they are pretty much similiar except that bank of america has 0% origination fee for federal stafford loan and citibank has an automatic 0.5% interest rate reduction once you enter repayment and waive last 6 months of payment if the rest were paid on time. So I am leaning towards using citibank as my lender. Anyone has any suggestions/opinions on this? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I just talked to my financial aid advisor and she said citibank is not going to give student loans anymore starting now. if you have loans through them (like me) everything is fine, you just have to pick a different lender for next year.

    You sure you don't mean Bank of America (and just for private loans)? From their site:
    I can't find anything on Citi's site about that.
