With us is Mark Weiker and Lauren Sabo from the Columbus, OH based law firm of Albeit Weiker, LLP. Their primary purpose in practicing school law is to help make sure that all of Ohio's students have access to a quality education. We represent students, preschool through professional degrees.

During each episode, Aaron Greene, Founder and CEO at College Liftoff, and his staff of counselors help students and families reduce the cost of higher education, navigate the application process, and make well-rounded decisions by evaluating the modern metrics of education.
College Liftoff emerged from Aaron’s desire to help students learn to treat education like an investment, accounting for the career, academic, and financial factors that shape this decision. He has also forged a debt control calculation to set student loan debt limits for each student. College Liftoff opened its first office in Columbus, Ohio in May 2009.
