Coming from rural Shirdi, Suyash Sakhare moved to Mumbai to prepare for the SAT. “It was terrifying for me to come to this big city. Jamboree helped me make the transition smoothly,” he says, grateful for customized support that extended beyond the classroom.
He took the SAT and scored a decent 1400. He also took SAT Subject Tests and scored 800 in both Physics and Math Level II. “Don’t take the SAT too seriously! A lot of students do that and get nervous. While preparing, study for an hour every day and take mocks on weekends. Also, read good novels for improving your English,” he advises.
Suyash applied to 10 universities and got admits from eight: Purdue, University of Kansas, University of Minnesota at Twin Cities, University of Colorado at Boulder and University of Michigan, among others. He chose University of Kansas as he won a scholarship of USD26,000 per year covering his full tuition.
On how Jamboree’s admissions team helped him, he explains, “My admissions advisor at Jamboree asked me to submit a research paper on physical analysis of basketball. I credit my success to Jamboree. I also think my interest in sports (basketball, cricket, horse riding, etc.) helped me a lot in getting the desired result.”
