So what happens with loans that we take after July 1, 2005? Can we have 'em consolidated as well?

After July 1st you can still consolidate, but at a higher interest rate.

As long as your application is filled out/postmarked by Jun 30, you're ok.

And i screwed myself bad somehow. After my consolidation process was all said and done, i locked in at 3.25% :(. Oh well, it's going to save me apx 3k, so whatever.

What if all the undergrad loans are subsidized? Once you refi don't you lose the government paying the interest while you are in school? I only have about 10,000 in loans and it seems they would accumulate more in interest while I'm in school if they are not subsidized than they would accrue at a higher insterest rate during repayment.
