I have a daughter heading off to college shortly. As part of the original financial aid application she was only approved for a rather small student loan amount. Her mom and I are going to try and help pay as much of the cost as we can, but we still want her to pay a part of the cost. We are a little late getting around to the whole student loan thing and are kind of lost of where to begin. They are just so many different lender options out there. She got a year of college out of the way by doing PSEO last year so that really helps. She has plans to work during the school year as well, but I want her to keep that to a minimum untill she gets settled into the whole college life. Anyone recently been through this process and figured out the best place to get the student loan through.
