Regarding the right to choose a lender, the student loan scandal has really shaken up the way colleges present your lender options. It is important to note that you have a choice when borrowing a student loan. You do not have to go with your school's prefered lender anymore. You can select your local bank if you so chose. If your college financial aid officers tell you other wise then call them out and explain you're aware of the recent student loan scandal and your rights as a student.
