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.
My private loans had a 11.5% interest rate and I had called EdFed to see what they can do for me. The loan officer that I was working with started an application for me and ran my credit to see what my interest rate would be and its actually 8.6% I was so excited I faxed them my application that same day. Thank you for your help. - Kathryn B. Atlanta, GA
