I joined the Jamboree, Pune branch in June, and I am glad to say that it has been a fulfilling experience so far. The faculty at the branch is the best in the business and the study materials provided were extremely helpful. The program also includes access to multiple online test, which provide ample practice before taking the GMAT exam. In addition, the tips and tricks provided to tackle all kind of GMAT problems was very helpful during the test. I urge all candidates to consider Jamboree Classroom Training while preparing for GMAT and hope that it will be an enriching experience for you all as it was for me.

The instructors at Jamboree are knowledgeable and dedicated. Moreover the sincerity of the staff at JAMBOREE is indeed commendable. Classes are conducted regularly. The instructors ensure that all topics have been covered for each student and they are always ready to help you clear your doubts. In fact, their dedication motivates you to work harder towards your target score.

In conclusion, the mix of brilliant instructors, superb study material and your own desire and determination to succeed is a perfect recipe for a great GMAT score.

Although it is one of the more expensive coaching centres, I personally recommend JAMBOREE as it is worth your money!

This review is for: Jamboree GMAT Classroom Training | Location: Pune, India | Taught by: Rohit Ghosh

I was really not clear with the process of GMAT and application process for MBA abroad. But jamboree made it clear and easy for me. as per my experience I can say Jamboree is one of the best options available for Abroad Education. Now I am confident about my admission.
Initially I was not having hope that I can target Top B-Schools and Universities abroad, But after interactions here with Counselors I am confident.

Few things I really appreciate-
1. Personal doubt clearing.
2. Unique coaching pattern
3. Online webinars.
4. Admission counseling process.

Thanks to faculty here at pune and Admission counseling team.

This review is for: Jamboree GMAT Classroom Training | Location: Pune, India | Taught by: Rohit Ghosh

I took the classroom training program at Jamboree, Pune. The structured and mathematical approach to solve Verbal questions was key for building foundation. The faculty was very friendly and Helpful. The personal attention and doubt clearing sessions were very useful for improvement. The study material and on-line tests are one of the first resources for the preparation. Continuous support and guidance by Rohit sir and other staff, with regular motivation helped me to boost my confidence. I am indebted to everyone in Jamboree who helped me in realizing my dream, specially to Rohit sir. Indeed, the best institute!! I recommend it to all....

This review is for: Jamboree GMAT Classroom Training | Location: Pune, India | Taught by: Rohit Ghosh

Hi all,

I got 770(IR7, QA50, VA45) in my second GMAT attempt on 27/4/15.

I joined Jamboree Regular classes only.

So My GMAT prep involved mostly the following material.

1. Official questions (Everything under the sun).
2. Jamboree material.
3. MGMAT (SC guide and test series only).
4. CR Powerscore Bible
5. Explanations of only Official questions on online forums.

For my score,I'll give most of the credit only to Jamboree.

The main USP of jamboree pune is the instructor. He not only mentored me for GMAT but also guided me towards some crucial improvements in my profile.
But still i would suggest Pay a visit to some centres in pune and take only an informed decision.

JAMBOREE PUNE October 27 | 2015

This review is for: Jamboree GMAT Classroom Training | Location: Pune, India | Taught by: Rohit Ghosh

Got 720 in GMAT.

I would like to thank Jamboree Pune team and especially Rohit sir for all the support. The classes at Jamboree were focused. Constant emphasis was given on the process specific approach and result oriented efforts. Gmat is an exam more of attitude rather than quantitative and verbal skills and we were taught to build the right attitude for the exam from day-1. Constant analysis of the mocks by Rohit Sir helped a lot in identifying my weak points. One to one sessions with Rohit Sir helped a lot in maintaining focus and self belief. In short I would highly recommend JAMBOREE PUNE, especially classes by Rohit Ghosh, to all serious aspirants.

610 to 680 October 17 | 2015

I am a student of Jamboree Pune.
I had given my first GMAT in August 2014 and score a lowly 610. A little introspection and I realized I needed a helping hand. That is when I approached Jamboree and I must say joining this class has been worth it.
The instructor here is simply amazing. He not only taught well in the class but also solved the doubts in one on one session. This is something rare to see. Also the class size here rarely exceeds 30, so that is another advantage. The great thing about the instructor is that not only did he teach well but also kept motivating. There were moments when I thought GMAT was not my cup of tea but he kept pushing me and did not let me take a date till I was ready. Thanks to the instructor I score 680 on the GMAT which was a 70 points rise over my previous score.

My study material consisted of
1. OG and the prep pack
2. GMAT Prep tests 1,2,3,4
3. Jamboree material

I scored 750 over the last weekend. For this achievement, I cannot stress enough the importance of Jamboree Pune team and Rohit sir, in particular. Indeed, the scoring required a consistent effort on my part; however I was properly directed at the institute. In addition, I received the online support that kept my momentum going. If you are targeting a 700+ score on the GMAT, I would strongly recommend a guided training and a measured test preparation. In my experience, it takes more than throwing a bunch of formula at the questions that flash on the screen. For a really good score on GMAT, you must become a smart test taker. Over the course of last 3 months, Jamboree Pune did it for me. -- Best wishes, Prateek

This review is for: Jamboree GMAT Classroom Training | Location: Pune, India | Taught by: Rohit Ghosh

” It was 8;30 in the morning on a tedious Monday, I was sitting alone in the office thinking if this is what I ever wanted to do in my life . I liked the job but I always wanted to be involved in bigger things, have more responsibilities and see myself taking decisions that have a direct impact on the organization I work for. It was then, I decided that I would do an MBA and acquire the skill set I would need to get into such a position.

Now the confusion arrives. Where to do my MBA? Which exam to take? CAT or GMAT? Target the IIMs or the US Business Schools?After a lot of interactions with my consultant and other mentors, I decided to take GMAT and target a top 25 Business School in US. I did all my education where I was forced to run after the results and was always under pressure to score well in the examinations rather than to learn something. I wanted a change and I saw doing my MBA in US as the one I one I was looking for. Finally I made the decision to take GMAT and started to search the ways I can prepare for the exam. I searched on the net, asked my friends and finally shortlisted a few institutions. I took a day off to visit the academic centers personally and decide where to join. I started with one institute near my residence and then another one and finally reached this place called JAMBOREE. The name didn’t sound good and the center was equally gloomy. I entered with an opinion to just have a look and move on but when I did enter I never knew my life would be changed forever, for the good. I met this awesome guy called Rohit Ghosh, the man who emits knowledge and energy. He told me one thing, give me your time, never give up, work till the day you take GMAT and I promise you a top score. He is the faculty for both quant and verbal sections and also the one who strategizes the preparation for all the students at the pune JAMBOREE center. I was impressed and my GMAT journey started in the next 15 minutes after our talk ended.

My preparation started well. I gave up on my weekend fun and started to attend the classes regularly. After a few weeks, some doubts started creeping in my mind. Whether I can achieve this? Is it in my range? I failed in a subject during my under grad, where even a average student will not and here I am trying to achieve something many people don’t even dare to dream…a 750+ GMAT score. I could not concentrate and my morale got low. I went to Rohit and had a discussion about everything that bothered me and he just asked me to believe in myself and keeping moving forward. Those words got strongly imprinted in my heart and I restarted my preparation. The course was completed and I have completed the study material and started to give my mock examinations. Just at this moment I got transferred to Hyderabad and now I had to make a decision, either to take a break in my preparation or to take leave for a month from office, prepare and take GMAT. I know GMAT is my priority and I am not giving up on it. I have applied for sick leave for a month and decided to stay back in pune to prepare for the exam. My leave was not approved and had to struggle a lot to get it done but all I was saying to myself was not to get irritated with this and that when I achieve my goal , all these things will become sweet memories. I finally started my Mock examinations.

I took my first mock, did very well in quant and bad in verbal. I was not worried as it was expected and started working hard on verbal. Mock 2, 3,4,5,6 no change in the verbal and the number of mistakes in each exam started to increase and I panicked as the date I was supposed to take GMAT was approaching and I am not at the level I wanted to be. The next day I went to take my 7th Mock and when I was travelling to the center, I got a call from my home with terrible news that my mother’s younger brother died of heart stroke. I took a flight, went to Hyderabad, attended the ceremony and came back after a few days in a sad state. I got myself up and went to the institute to continue with my mocks and did even worse on that day. I thought that would be the end and I that cannot make it. I decided to take GMAT in the next few days and get a 650 score or so and move from pune to Hyderabad. I was about to book a date for the exam, only to be interrupted by Rohit. He came to me and said, “Nandan, you are not prepared enough to give the exam, just give 15 more days and I promise you a very good score”. I thought for a while, and then realized that my decision is not the right one. I said to myself, “when someone who doesn’t have anything to do with this believes in me and is ready to invest time and energy in me…why am I not ready to do that?” I felt ashamed and started to put in a lot of effort to get my verbal preparation on track.

I used to follow everything Rohit said and completed all the material that he has given me. I almost did 2000 sentence correction questions that improved my accuracy from 30% to 95% in that section. I started to improve on my scores each day and after a week I booked my Exam date just in a few days. Every day in the morning I used to be the first one in the center, write a mock and wait near the door of Rohit’s cabin to have his time for a quick discussion and finally leave after everyone left. I did this for 14 days and the results started to show. I had to take a leave extension, had people who believed in me along with me and life started to look good again. My friends Aravind and Vasudhar were there with me all these days and had a big role to play in my success. They used to listen to everything I say about my Mock, My exam and everything and always there for me. Finally the day I waited for so long had arrived and I went to the Examination center. I was scheduled to start my examination at 10 am in the morning and started it with an Essay in the Analytical writing. I did pretty well in quant and finished 17 minutes ahead of time and started my verbal. I never find time sufficient for verbal section but on the day I finished it 23 minutes before time and submitted my exam for the final score. I was terrified to see so much time remaining and thought that I did something wrong. I didn’t pray for any score but just asked god to give me the attitude to take any score in the right way. To my shock I saw a 760 on the screen and I screamed out of joy. I took my passport and rode to the Jamboree center. I didn’t say anything to anyone, didn’t call even my parents, went straight to Rohit’s Cabin and waited near the door as the way I used to everyday. After a few minutes he noticed me and was surprised to see me as it is 1 and half hour before the scheduled time, I was supposed to complete my exam. He screamed “Nandan! Didn’t you write the exam?” I calmly said I did and gave my score sheet to him. He didn’t say anything for a moment and I could see pride in his eyes. What better sight for a student than seeing pride in his teacher’s eyes? He congratulated me and I was on top the world and in the awe of getting such a score. I never knew that I was just half the way and the real struggle is waiting for me.

People started calling me for GMAT prep help. I got new friends and all of a sudden I became a famous guy in the world I live in. From a lazy talented to a hard working guy , from the one who had a backlog in college to the one who achieved a top score in GMAT, I had an amazing transformation in my life and with all this I started applying to the Business schools . I didn’t know the reality, I didn’t do any research. People started to praise my score to whomever I talked to and I took no care to script the essays or the LORs with all the pride I got. I applied to all the top schools and just one safe school. Got rejected from everywhere else without getting interview calls except the admit from the safe school. I decided not to join and that I would reapply for the next year. I was disappointed that not even one school called me for an interview but later realized that I never deserved one. I read my essays that I submitted and felt bad for the way I lost it with my negligence and pride. I got my feet back on ground and realized I need to work harder than what I did for my exam to get into the top schools and started my work well before the application deadlines.

I started to get involved in the business side of the work I do in TCS. Got into a role of Functional consultant and started to interact with the clients that added value to my resume. I gave time to get to know myself, what I wanted to do with my career, what are my strengths and how am I planning to use my time at the school. I interacted with alumni from the schools I planned to apply and got to know what are the ways the school can help me achieve my goals and how I can best use my time. I have scripted good essays this time around and applied to all tiers of schools in a good shape in round 1. The result I got was a reject again. I was down and lost all hope. I got rejected at my dream schools and my target schools waitlisted me. I took a break and analyzed what went wrong. I ran, I walked, I crawled but I kept moving and never gave up. I took extra care in penning down the essays and applied to schools again. Finally after 413 days of wait got my first admit at Tippie school of Business, university of IOWA with 100% scholarship and I was over the moon. I started to get the admits from all the schools I have applied in round 2 and finally got into McDonough School of Business, Georgetown university, one of the top 25 schools in US. The moment I saw the admit mail, all the days of hard work and struggle flashed in my head and tears of joy came out without a stop. After 2 years of continuous hard work often coupled with distress and disappointments, I emerged victorious and achieved my dream of getting into a top 25 business school in US and now I definitely don’t want to do the mistake I did before. I have learnt that success is not a destination but a journey and I want to continue my effort until the day I decide to hang my boots and relax. I don’t know what I would with my career post MBA but definitely every passing day I will try to be better than who I was yesterday and keeping moving towards my dream. And I did live my dream of doing an MBA and I am proud to do so…”
