    Do you mean banks?

    I would stick with Stafford loans if possible (lower interest, and no interest in the subsidized portion until after graduation). As to the bank, I'm sure any of them will probably be the same deal, since it's the same loan (talking about Stafford loans).

    T.H.E. is another lender to be aware of and compare - for many reasons.

    - no fees - first lender to provide this service! (and no way to tack on these fees later on)
    - incentives aren't driven by "on-time payments" - you start receiving as soon as you go into repayment - and there is never a way to lose the savings. That is why over 95% of borrowers are receiving their benefits, where other lenders only can say 5-15%. They are banking that you will miss or be late on a payment!

    Do you homework and be sure to ask the right questions! And be sure to READ THE FINE PRINT.
