EMPOWERgmat is an amazing prep platform. All of the content is explained extremely well and is easy to follow. There is also a feature that allows you to follow set lesson plans, based on the type of study you aim to do (3-month plan, 1-month plan, Verbal crash course, etc.). Before I found EMPOWER, I was completely lost. I had tried two other prep courses before Empower and was struggling to score above 500 (Yes, I said 500!). After pouting about it and blaming the universe for my lack of effort, I decided to get serious and give EMPOWER a try. As someone who has never done well on standardized tests, I can say with absolute certainty that without Rich and Max, a top 50 school would be out of my reach. Thanks to their methods and their constant reassurance that effort creates results, I was able to score extremely close to my target score (a whopping 160 point improvement from my first CAT before EMPOWER, as well as a 130 point improvement from the first CAT I took on day one of my EMPOWER training). To the team at EMPOWERgmat: Thank you guys so much. The B-School application is a muti-step process and I still have a lot to do - but without you guys and the EMPOWER program, I would have no shot at my target schools. Cheers to all of you.
