It has to be pretty easy even for a dummy like me to get through it. I have been wanting to go back to school for a long time and now with this help I just might be able to. Thank you to everyone at edau.

The entire process is simply good and I have completed whole process by myself. It is very easy to review the WES application and also the time is taken to complete and process my application is very short. In a short time only I got my WES application report.

    I love this company because of its customer service scale. If you call or visit the workers they will treat you with courtesy. In terms of borrowing terms it is fair and their promises are reliable and valuable. It also keeps its customers in touch of all promotions taking place.

    I really liked all the options I had. Everything was very flexible and other was able to choose my own time and amounts paid. Overall, I had really great experience and would highly recommend going with this option for loans. Customer support was really easy to get a hold of and they answered all questions in a polite and informative way. They were easy to understand and very helpful. I like this customer service and wish others were just as great. The application process was very easy to do. The application was easy to understand and fill out. The application was not very long and drag out over too many questions like some other application I've done in the past. Counseling services were very helpful to have. They were there any time I needed help with something or just needed reassurance. I had a great experience talking with them and they were very helpful towards my needs.

    I would recommend this because they had several payment options that work well with anyone. They also work well with what you have to pay if you're poor. The customer support were very friendly, sweet, and smart. They were very patient with whatever problems you might have paying your loan. The application process were very easy and fast. They work very well with whatever problems you might have because they want your business. I never needed to use this service counseling services. I am sure though if it is like all of their other services that it is very good service to use.

    They have several payment options to consider. They will be mailing me some more information and follow up phone calls to discuss the payment options as it goes a lot by income. Customer service is great and I would recommend to friends and family that need to discuss loans. They are very kind and very helpful. It is a very short application and then they acquire all the loans for you and talk about a payment plan to meet your needs as well as will help answer any questions that you may have. Very good and very helpful in all the process. You will have to call them and they can walk you thru the process and the steps to get this done.

    I get great deals on my on time payments and better rates than most of my competing rate for other brands that were out there. Setup was good but I never had to worry about late payments. Just the setups for insurance I fell thru that month was good and I feel that it was okay. It was a very easy setup and getting it was not as hard as it sounded at first but it was very simple to get going for the first time and I liked that.

    The payment options were my choice and very convenient for my situation. I was able to pay my loans back on my own terms. At a low interest rate which was awesome. I had a limited amount of customer service but the amount I did have was very good. All my questions were answered quickly and efficiently. The application process was quick. I thought it was very easy. Didn't need too much information. Worth my time I would say. A positive experience. The counseling service I received was good. Nothing to complain about I guess. They helped me through the process and I am satisfied with their assistance.

    It helps and works wonders. It can especially be useful to people who are new to financial aid and it helps keep track of things and works with you with the payments. They are very nice and helpful and can really help you if you are clueless which I have been multiple times and they get things sorted right away. The application process is very simple and easy and it’s not a hassle at all nor is it too invading and isn’t that much time consuming and doesn’t take long for you to get your results. It’s amazing for starters. They are always there when you need them and they have no problem with it nor are they rude about anything you have questions about no matter how big or small.
