Speaking of the #friendship you make at #JSOM, ITM majors Sayli Potdar and Richa Shah became close after a particular incident: "When our passports got tampered within only a week of coming to the United States, we were completely helpless. The #JindalSchool was our light at the end of a dark tunnel and was very cooperative and even funded our whole new Passport Issuance process. We are so glad we chose JSOM. We don’t know what we would have done without the school’s help.” #jsomfaces
