SoFi Student Loan Refinance review
6/9/2017
I applied and was approved in a timely manner. My interest rate was awesome compared to what I'm at with the Feds. I just now have to decide whether or not I want to give up my rights that the Feds offer with repayment options over the life of the loan.

Please ignore my last review. I was remarking about another student loan refinance company. SoFi promptly responded to my concern and answered my questions. They (Mitsy) were very prompt and courteous.
