Which lender should I use for my government student loans?

I have previously attended a direct loan school and thus I had to take out my Stafford and GradPLUS loans through the school directly. I am now going to another school that is FFELP school and I can choose my lender. I was given a preferred list from the school. I remember reading that sometimes the preferred list isn't the best deal around.
And that you should shop around
. However, I've read that it's getting harder and harder to find great borrower benefits
such as waiving loan origination fees.
I found a list of the top 100 lenders
. Yet #1 on that list is Sallie Mae which is a terrible company
Have any of you found a lender that you like with good benefits? Anything else I'm missing?
