A week after launching our alpha version of the site, we were featured on Yahoo News! The article provides a great overview of what the student loan tool does and how we can we help borrowers pay off student loans faster. Hopefully this is just a start to some other great media plugs addressing the student loan crisis.
Here is a quick snippet of the article:
“Users first enter the details of their debts – both federal and private – into the system, enabling them to view all of their loans in one place. They can then see how much they are currently paying each month, their average interest rate across loans, their minimum payment and how long it will take to become free of the debts. Users can then select one of three plans depending on what works best for them. The Fast Track option pays the loans with the highest interest rate first, while the Debt Snowball plan pays those with the lowest principal first, or graduates can just choose to pay the minimum installments. The site explains the consequences of each plan in order to educate users about finance as they make decisions about their loans. A glossary of financial terms is available and the start-up aims to add graphic explanations of how loan options work.”
