    My friend got a loan from them with no problems. I looked into it but they seemed like a bunch of shizters to me, and didn't want to give them any of my money. They have investors who profit from your interest, which in and of itself isn't the biggest deal, but what bothered me is the way they wouldn't fess up to it when I called. They just lied and lied and lied.

    EDIT: I would stick with sallie mae (or nellie mae, never remember which it is) because as I remember it My Rich Uncle is BARELY a student loan. It doesn't even go through the school. Oh, and the origination fee is ridiculous!!

    Check the financial aid forum. This one rings a bell with me from a few years ago, and I seem to recall the popular vote was not a positive one.

    What would be better is if you have an actual rich uncle who will just pay for your ****. Or a sugar momma/daddy.

    thanks for the tips. Oh and I think you meant Fannie Mae, and I don't think they deal directly with student loan.

    No problem. And I double checked, I did mean Nellie Mae, and in my experience they do deal directly with the school for student loans.

    Also check out Total Higher Education (T.H.E.) for loans. Haven't gone wrong with them thus far for my graduate loans.

    Sallie Mae does student loans, Fannie Mae is for mortgages. Never heard of Nellie Mae, but I believe it!

    Well toot'n'tarnations....seems you were right Bob. That is a pity though because they were the one I saw with the best benefits and customer service was very nice. Bloody recession.

    Nellie Mae is a sister of Sallie Mae, you can do your grad plus loans through them. Medloans (Dollar Bank) is also being serviced by Sallie Mae now.
