This is funny; the great lakes loan is the one I had huge problems with (and still do today). Sallie Mae also refused to include their loans in my consolidation loan. Maybe you could request a copy of the original loan agreements? I would be careful when paying this.

Update: Paid the full $19,452.96 and opted out of the "settlement" amount of $18,702.00. Definitely not worth the ~$800 saved.

Can't really say how I feel...but's completely off my plate and I have $0 in outstanding liabilities to anyone.
