For one, it’s the only M7 program besides rival HBS in which the interviewer – who is a member of the admissions committee – will have reviewed your entire application. Applicants invited to interview are also required to respond to two pre-interview<a href="https://fortunaadmissions.com/2020/11/18/mit-sloan-interview-tips-sample-behavioral-questions/" class="more-link"> […]</a>

As I was applying to 3 schools simultaneously, Brendan was excellent as helping me to manage my time and keep on track for each deadline. He was a huge help especially during the online interview process for INSEAD, providing critical feedback and techniques that helped me to successfully complete this relatively new aspect of the application. As Brendan went through the application process himself with most of the schools that I was applying to, his first hand knowledge was invaluable in helping me to understand which areas of the application to focus and how to best present my candidate profile. I would definitely recommend Brendan and and the Fortuna team for anyone looking to apply to any of the top 10/20 MBA programs both in the US and abroad. Their team is familiar with all of these top schools and can get you set up on the right track for success.
