Kennedy Introduces Legislation That Would Alter Federal Financial Aid
The Legal Career Resources column is presented by LawCrossing, America's leading legal job search site dedicated to getting jobs for legal professionals.
On April 3 Senator Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) introduced legislation that would make sweeping changes to federal financial aid. The bill, given the short name ''Strengthening Student Aid for All Act,'' is intended to ensure students have sufficient access to financial aid, in the forms of both grants and loans.
I know I had started an application for Federal Consolidation with a couple companies, but I am a busy man and got off track. Law School Loans gave me a call and I finished my application in time to receive a great low interest rate. So my advice to you would be if they are calling, pick up so you can get your consolidation done and lock in a low interest rate. Thank you L... - Brian H. San Diego, CA
