Bottom line

However, you will have to look for other options if you are living in Mississippi as the lender does not operate in this state.

★★★★★
I have had 3 loans with this lender and all of them were approved in 10 minutes with no hassle. I got very low interest rates. Excellent company that I would recommend to anyone who needs funds qiuckly.
- Mildred Randall

★★★★★
In 2017 I applied for a SoFi loan consolidation and it was a trouble-free process. I waited about a year and then applied for a home loan… For now, I can say my experience with this lender has been great.
- Carla Mackey

★☆☆☆☆
SoFi is a scam, I have warned you
- Luis Colby

★☆☆☆☆
My experience with SoFi is so absurd! I am 43 yo, have 826 credit score and great credit history, high veritable income, a job and needed only a $20,000 loan, never missed a payment, perfect everything, but despite all of this my application was declined with no explanation!!
- Dianna Davidson

★★★★★
The customer service representative was nice and helpful… Money was transferred immediately into my checking account and my payments were automatically withdrawn every month. I have no complaints and can recommend this business to anyone.
- Kayla Pina

★☆☆☆☆
“When I applied to SoFi for a personal loan I was ‘PRE-APPROVED’! Then I sent them lots of documents including tax statements, bank statements, letters of my credit explanation (my credit score is over 750). After all of this, I then received a message that I was declined. What? Why?? They already said I was approved? Worst lender ever!!! Waste of time!!!
