The chance of getting on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank is 0.2%. The chance of getting a perfect SAT score is 0.02%. The chance of doing both is 0.004%. That’s exactly what 2400 Expert Founder Shaan Patel has done, according to Patel’s website.
Patel will be appearing on ABC’s Shark Tank on Friday, January 29th. As 7 million viewers watch, Patel will be pitching a panel of multimillionaires for an investment in his educational test-prep startup, 2400 Expert. Shark Tank is popular television series.
Who is Patel? This is what he says about himself on his website:
“I grew up in my parent’s budget motel, attended urban public schools in the worst school district in the nation with a 40% dropout rate, and was clueless about standardized tests. But through focused preparation, I was able to raise my SAT score from average to perfect — which changed my life! I was admitted into prestigious universities, won a quarter million dollars in scholarships, and even got to meet the President of the United States. In addition, I was a National Merit Scholar, a Coca-Cola Scholar, a Toyota Scholar, and on the USA Today All-USA High School Academic Team.”
Patel started the company after he improved his own SAT score from average to perfect while at Clark High School, and wanted to teach other students how to improve their own scores. 2400 Expert now runs 6-week SAT & ACT prep courses online and in-person in 20 cities around the country and has achieved tremendous results.
Thousands of 2400 Expert students have received admission into Ivy League universities, won millions in college scholarships, and some have even gotten perfect SAT scores themselves, such as current Clark High School senior, Michelle Malwane, who after taking the 2400 Expert SAT Prep Course improved her score 490 points to a perfect 2400!
During his time at Clark High School, Patel was Valedictorian, Homecoming King, and the recipient of 20 college scholarships totaling over a quarter million dollars from companies such as Coca-Cola, Toyota, and McDonald’s. His first SAT prep book, McGraw-Hill’s SAT 2400 in Just 7 Steps, has sold over 20,000 copies and has been a #1 bestseller on Amazon for SAT Prep. He is also currently an MD/MBA student at USC and Yale.
Clark High School will be hosting a viewing party for 2400 Expert’s appearance on Shark Tank on January 29th from 7:30PM – 10:00PM. The viewing party will also be streamed online! Stay tuned for details about how to RSVP.
2400 Expert will also be giving free SAT books to students of any high school or educational organization willing to a host a satellite viewing party in their city! You can contact Shaan Patel directly about setting one up.
