Wells Fargo Student Loan Consolidation Reviews

Since Wells Fargo is one of the largest student loan consolidation companies in America there are several stories both good and bad about

Review #1 – 5/10 – Interest Rate Too High and Customer Service Terrible!

“After graduating from College in May I wanted to see if I could consolidate my student loans at a lower interest rate. I applied to Wells Fargo and submitted the signed promissory note. 1 Week after I had faxed over the promissory note I received a Loan Disclosure form saying I had been approved and the funds had been sent to Sallie Mae.

I was under the impression from the Loan Disclosure form and the promissory note that if I didn't like the terms I was under no obligation! Once I called Wells Fargo to try and reverse the payment since I didn't want to go with Wells Fargo I was told basically too bad.

This problem still isn't resolved and I wouldn't use Wells Fargo again.

The reason I didn't want to go with the Wells Fargo Consolidation is because the interest rate was way to high”

Review #2 – 8/10 – Lowered My Interest Rate

“After graduating in December and having several Stafford loans I am now trying to figure out a repayment plan that leaves the most money in my pocket. 50% of my loans have a variable interest rate of 3.6% and the other 50% are fixed at 6.8%.

After applying for a Wells Fargo Student Loan Consolidation I was able to roll all my student loans into 1 consolidated student loan at the low 3.6% variable rate saving me thousands of dollars per year.”
