Direct Loan is a government agency (or part of one) that can loan and service your loans. I consolidated my undergrad loans with them, but I did not choose them for my law school loans. They don't offer the incentives offered by the other lenders. The lenders recommended by my school offered the best incentives of all, so I went with Citibank, which was on their list.
Just an FYI - Direct Loan is great to work with. There is none of the crap involved with other lenders (I'm thinking specifically of Sallie Mae).
