As I'm currently trolling for northstar, you should check out their school-specific breakdowns. They tell you, plain and simple, what you will borrow and what you will take home.

If only other lenders could do the same!

Looks like it's not available for UVa?  Only William & Mary, George Mason and Washington & Lee in Virginia.  Oh well, Access Group it is...
UVa it is!

Wow!  They really do have a great website.  All the information you need is right there.  Other companies should do the same...

The interest they are charging is 3 month libor + 3.75% though.  That seems like a lot.

That's strange. It wasn't available for Harvard, either ...

I guess they must have different deals for different schools; stanford's is 3mo LIBOR + 2.75%. Their info on stafford loans might be worth perusing, though ?

Yeah, their deals on the Stafford Loans look good.

Yup. I can't imagine they get any better, with no fees whatsoever! Accessgroup doesn't have origination fees, but they do (i think) have the guarantee fess.

It didn't have the University of Michigan listed either.  Do they not offer loans to public university students?
or something? Also they had Princeton University listed.  They don't have a law school.

A guarantee fee and an origination fee are different.  Guarantee fee's are ussually currently around 1%.
You can't make everyone happy...
but you can sure piss everyone off.

I contacted Northstar.org and they said that they do lend to Michigan Law School, just
that it's under the grad school list instead of the law school list.  This may be true
of other schools as well.
