Andrea Houston, TX

I just applied for a loan, score of 690 with a Masters degree, salary near 100k, with moderate amount of savings and assets--given an 18% rate for 35k to payoff a student loan at 6.5%. Why on earth would I agree to that? The point of applying for this type of loan is to lower the interest rate, not multiply it times three!!

After applying they could not read my pay stub and declined me based on debt to income. After speaking with someone at Upstart, they realized the mistake and told me to re apply. When I did they doubled my initial interest rate. Total bait and switch!!

Incredibly easy! I was in need of a short term loan to cover a lump sum education cost. Upstart made this possible!

Great customer service, comprehensive and fast. However, I was under the impression that there would be 'no hard inquiry' and there was one. f.

The overall interface and general responsiveness is pretty stellar. They continue asking for documents endlessly. Eventually their requests became too intrusive and their reasoning for it being nonsense, ended up using another platform.

I like that you look just more than the credit score to provide a credit, very easy to get the loan and efficient process.

Deny loan for not providing college transcripts. I’ve been out of college since 2008. Why do transcripts from 13 years ago matter?????

Upstart is a bait and switch, scam loan company. They are a complete opposite of what they say or do. They should be reported to the FTC. I will not recommend them to anyone. All they do is to use customer information.

Better name would be “upcharge” They consistently come back with higher interest-rate‘s for approval terms They claim to look at your entire picture but they definitely do not.

It is nothing more than an information phishing scam. They claim to look at the whole person, not just their credit score. This is a lie. All they look at is your credit score.

Extremely high interest rate loans. This will not help with debt or help you get in a rut. It will only help dig yourself deeper in debt. My experience was horrible and never ended up taking the loan.

After dealing with an inept rep for a month, I finally gave up. They have all my personal info and I'm really worried about them being a legit company. Be wary of Identity Theft !!!!
