Elena's favorite things
These are my go-to resources
I refinanced my student loans in May and saved on my interest rate with SoFi. I'm very happy because I don't have to deal with SallieMae ever again. Even during the application process, I was very impressed with their customer service. Now that I'm their customer, they'll help me find a job if I'm out of work or will defer my loans if I want to start a company.
See if they'll save you some money - use this link and we both get $300!
