Bad advice from loan rep?????

My loans are below, I hope it comes out clear.  My Acs/Brazos loans are in rehab through the NYSHESC, I am in month 4.  Once the rehab is over the loans will be turned over to Suntrust and the NYSHESC acct will be removed from my credit as per the NYSHESC rep.  Now here is the thing, I called to start making payments on the Brooklyn Perkins acct and the rep told me I qualified for the direct loan consolidation.  I told her I was already in rehab with the other defaulted loans and all of my direct loans are in good standing with no lates.  She insisted consolidation was the way to go, where direct loans would take over all of my loans including the ones in rehab so I would just make one payment to direct loans.  I don't think that is a good idea especially since the bulk of my loans are in good standing.  Any advice?

Re: Bad advice from loan rep?????

Are those all individual loans? So you have 90k+ in student loans?  If your loans are in good standing, I see no reason to consolidate. Trust nothing these people tell you. They are not your friend, and they are not very informed. Many of them get a commision/bonus, for getting you to agree to certain payments,consolidations,etc etc. In fact, I would not even communicate with them over the phone anymore. Get everything in writing/email.

Re: Bad advice from loan rep?????

Yup, over 90K in loans! I have 2 degrees. I really dont see the need to consolidate so I'm going to go with my gut. After the rehab is over I will contact ACS/Brazos and see if they can erase the lates since the loan will be with a completely different lender. Thanks!!
