For most law students it is necessary to take out student loans to help finance their education. While loans help fill the financial gap, you should only borrow what you need.
NSLDS - National Student Loan Data System. The U.S. Department of Education's (ED's) central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV Aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data. However, it does not provide data regarding private (alternative) loans.
Student Financial Aid has just received the following Important Information release from the U.S. Department of Education concerning your Federal Direct Student Loan processing including e-signature for Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling.

Leave of Absence/Withdrawal
If at any time, a student decides to leave the College of Law, it is absolutely necessary for him/her to make an appointment with a counselor in the Law Financial Aid Office for an exit interview prior to leaving the campus. This applies to students who are taking a leave of absence, withdrawing, transferring to another institution or who are dismissed from the College of Law. Completing an exit interview is a requirement for any student borrowing federal student loans. Failure to meet for an exit interview may increase the risk of defaulting on student loans as well as incurring a potential liability to the College of Law for not maintaining compliance with a federal requirement.
