CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Still can’t believe it, I got in at INSEAD!  Fortuna’s advice was invaluable in helping me craft my application.  With timely and thorough feedback, I was able to draw upon the right experiences that allowed me to put my best foot forward. I would highly recommend this experience to any prospective applicants.

S.V., Ottawa – Admitted to INSEAD

You have first-hand knowledge of the admissions process (and not in a secondary role as many others) and can leverage that experience.
You are also a fun team to work with. Working for months on your applications can be stressful so this makes a difference.

J.F., Philadelphia – Admitted to Stanford GSB

Working with Fortuna is like having Warren Buffett as your personal financial advisor.

D.B., London – Admitted to HBS

I have been admitted to Stanford! This would never have been possible without your help. Beyond helping me correct the structure of the essays you helped me push my thinking especially on the ‘what matters most to me’ question.

A.B., Paris - Admitted to Stanford GSB
