Great Lakes performs the best overall when it comes to borrower and school satisfaction, but the worst when it comes to loan performance. Sallie Mae ranks the worst in borrower, school, and federal personnel satisfaction. Nelnet scores the best on loan performance, but sits in the middle of the pack on the satisfaction surveys.
