"With an average GPA, and over 30 years of age, most admission consultants considered me an “unfavorable” MBA candidate. However, working with Fortuna helped me to capitalize on the unique aspects of my story. They are proactive, details-oriented, supportive, and genuinely resourceful. I always found their feedback sessions to be exceptionally useful and practical. I have met over 10 admission consultants who are either MBA graduates from top schools, or self-claimed admission experts. Both groups told me useless stuff. You need someone who knows the admission process and can confidently show you the real tips and secrets of your target school. Thanks Fortuna for the dedication and professionalism. You made my dream come true!”"

"The team was extremely professional and informative; they know their field. They spent a lot of time with me understanding about my journey in life and guided me to pick up the right stories. My coach has a great attention to detail and was able to pick up the insights that even I didn't know about me. I found the whole process to be very reflective. I got accepted by MIT Sloan and I don't think I could have made it without Fortuna."

"Because Fortuna has years of experience on both sides of the admissions process (both as admissions consultants and admissions gatekeepers), they really know how to get the best out of you. For example, while I did not have a ton of international experience prior to applying, Fortuna helped me successfully emphasize the things that were most relevant to the INSEAD admissions team. The Fortuna team know INSEAD better than anyone, and I am forever thankful for their guidance over the past year."

"I can't express enough thanks to my Fortuna coach who worked with me both on positioning my story from the plethora of others with good scores/brand name firms and the minutiae of my essays (29 drafts in total across 3 schools!), as well as my resume and outlines to guide my recommenders. She was able to add a layer of structure, experience and project management to an otherwise intricate and idiosyncratic process. The entire Fortuna team has my gratitude and full endorsement."

"My Fortuna coach assisted me in preparing my applications to the Booth and Wharton - Lauder MBA programs. This is my first time applying and I only applied to a selected few M7 schools, hence I was quite stressed out during the process. My coach provided me with candid feedback on my strengths and weaknesses as an applicant and clear strategies to tailor my applications to the schools. She gave me specific suggestions on how to draft cohesive storylines, and always pushed me to sharpen my messages. Thanks to Fortuna’s assistance, and some luck of course, I have been admitted into both programs. I am excited to start a new chapter of my life!"

Kellogg '18

"I worried that my lack of relevant business experience meant I had to aim low. My Fortuna coaches helped me to mold my application in a way where my left-field work experience became a boon and not a hindrance. They took what I thought were weaknesses and turned them into strengths, and convinced me that telling my story honestly and fully was more interesting than just giving the Admissions Committees what they wanted. The best applications reflect people, not achievements, and it was with this holistic outlook that Fortuna gave me the confidence to attack my applications with conviction. I was accepted to Columbia and Kellogg, and I can't wait to attend my first-choice school in New York next year."

"Working with Fortuna was one of the best decisions I made in my MBA process. From their detailed knowledge of the MBA process to their thoughtful approach to helping me convey my life goals and vision to schools, they helped me at every step of the way. Not only am I going next year to my dream school, but I got a full scholarship in the process."

"After working with Malvina and Judith over several months, I can definitely say that Fortuna shines in the following two regards: 1) Approachability – In order to get the best essays out of you, you have to feel comfortable bouncing ideas back and forth with your counselors. I had a million questions regarding my applications, essays and interviews, and never had any qualms about emailing or setting up a skype call with either of my coaches. They were prompt and gave me useful, direct advice based on their years of experience. 2) Interview prep – Fortuna not only gave me access to dozens of school-specific interview questions but also connected me with alumni and a prior admissions officer to schedule multiple practice interviews. As someone with little to no connection to any of my target schools, this access was invaluable."
