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 had an interest rate straight out of a nightmare-10%. Thanks to Law School Loans, my rate dropped to 8.25% instantly. And with their remarkable payment incentives, my rate will go down to 7%. Thanks to Law School Loans Reconsolidation Program I was able to lower my rate by 3% points. - Edward P. New York, NY
