These are not the same, but they both can get you out of default. Rehab fixes your current loans by having you make 9 payments concurrently and on time. Consolidation is where you place all loans together and essentially refinance them into one new loan. So both have good things and bad things about them.
Before going into either program though, you should speak to your attorney. If you further questions on this please call us. You can reach us at 1-800- ERASE-DEBT or at www.studentloanlaw.com.
