Mehran Ebadolahi

Mehran Ebadolahi graduated summa cum laude from UCLA in 2004 with a B.A. in Business Economics and a minor in Accounting. The first time he took a practice LSAT, he scored a 148, which made him seriously reconsider his law school dreams. Through hard work and perseverance, however, he was eventually able to score a 174 on the December 2004 LSAT and he has been an LSAT instructor/private tutor ever since.

In 2010, Mehran graduated cum laude from Harvard Law School. It was during his time at HLS that he co-founded BarMax (“the $1000 app”) in an effort to disrupt the bar exam prep space that had long been a monopoly. Since graduating from HLS, Mehran has continued to work on BarMax (now TestMax, Inc.) full-time and he is currently the CEO of the company.

The first time she ever took a practice LSAT test she scored a 145 and raised it to a 175 through hard work and practice. Since then she has been an LSAT instructor and private tutor.

Naz has always had a penchant for standardized tests and finds happiness in helping others raise their LSAT scores. Naz lives in Los Angeles and is a real-life starving artist trying to find success as a novelist. In her free time she likes to bake, paint and read anything she can get her mitts on.
