  • Jenifer IS AMAZING!!!
    2 weeks ago
    I worked with Jenifer as a Round 2 candidate for the Class of 2023. As a reapplicant, I worked with an Admissions Consultant to identify ways to strengthen my application since I knew how competitive the process would be this year due to the pandemic. That said, I'm grateful to have found Jenifer! I purchased an 8-hour package, and within this brief period, she took the time to get to know me and went above and beyond to offer guidance on my essays, interviews, and overall story. When interacting with her, I felt like I was speaking with a mentor I have known for years. She was genuinely interested in ensuring that I put forth the best application out there, and I suspect that not ...

  • Thank You Jenny!

    I worked with Jenifer for 6 months applying to 5 different schools. With her help and guidance, I was invited to interview with four of them. All schools are very competitive top MBA programs. Jenifer is an amazing person and coach. She goes above and beyond in getting to know her clients in order to cater to the best story about them. We built an amazing relationship that I am sure will last for good. She is very genuine in her feedback and guidance which what candidates need the most in preparing their applications. I consider myself very lucky to have worked with her. You are great Jenny! TYK!

  • A Wonderful Experience Working With Jenifer!
    5 months ago
    I was initially hesitant to use a consulting service given the financial commitment, but now as a new M7 admit I can confidently say that it was worth every penny! I chose Fortuna for hourly services after having an initial consultation that was head and shoulders above the consultation that I had with another firm. I was fortunate to be paired with Jenifer, who was a fantastic mentor and a kindhearted person. She brought out the best in my profile and helped me thread together my unique story in a way that I couldn't have done entirely on my own. She was also an invaluable support system when those inevitable pre-submission doubts crept in. The application process can be draining, and Jenifer is definitely someone you ...

  • Coach Beyond MBA - GSB/Wharton/Sloan Admit
    10 months ago
    I wasn't 100% sure what to expect when I sought a coach for my MBA applications, but Jenny Raver far exceeded any of my expectations. The application process is a mentally, emotionally, and time-wise taxing journey - I couldn't have done it without Jenny's patience, personalized guidance, and incredible ability to connect the dots across my life/accomplishments in ways that enriched my belief in my own potential. If you're looking for a coach who knows the process inside out and has your back beyond professional success, I would look no further than Jenny, with whom I look forward to staying close with over future milestones in life.

  • Jenifer Is An Amazing Coach & Mentor!
    12 months ago
    When researching for an MBA admissions consultant, I interviewed with two MBA admissions consultants and decided to go with Fortuna because Fortuna took the time to get to know me, my background and understand the reason why I want to pursue an MBA prior to assigning me with a coach. After the initial chat and based on my background/school of interests, Fortuna connected me with Jenifer. It was truly a pleasure working with Jenifer and the Fortuna team. Jenifer is a very knowledgeable coach and she genuinely cares about her students. I chose the 2 school package with Fortuna and worked closely with Jenifer on essay writing for two schools and one mock interview. Throughout the essay editing phase, Jenifer provided great feedback ...

  • Excellent Mentor & Easy To Work With!
    12 months ago
    As a reapplicant, I was trying to figure out how to improve my application. Even though I went to Jenifer late in the application cycle, she helped me through every step in detail. Her consistent guidance and support were amazing. I discovered new angles to my stories through our discussions. Jenifer's warm and encouraging approach made the application process enjoyable. Throughout the application cycle (including closer to the deadlines), Jenifer remained extremely professional and responsive. When I was traveling to different time zones, Jenifer still managed to find windows to speak with me even on short notice. Her commitment and open communication made working with her very easy. After securing admission in a top program, as an international student, the pandemic has brought a fair ...

  • Highly Recommend Jenifer
    12 months ago
    From the initial call to working with my coach to director reviews, I felt strongly that the entire experience with Fortuna was personalized. From the beginning, my coach Jenifer was keen on building strong connection with me so that she could get to know me professional and personally. The connection made it possible for her to later personalize strategies and guide me to realize my full potential in applications. At every step, she provided me support thoroughly and patiently. No matter what situation I ran into, I felt I could rely on her expert opinions to exam my actions to take. It brought me peace of mind especially as I had an unconventional background with few connections in the B-school cycle. Along the process, I ...

  • Jenifer! You're the BEST!!!

    I worked with Jenifer Raver to prepare for my Team-Based Discussion. The 1-hour session I had with Jenifer as she reviewed my mock TBD and provided feedback to prepare me for the main TBD, made me build a very strong connection with her because she's so caring, patient, and very insightful. I wish \ worked with the Fortuna admission team from the beginning when I applied to other schools. I believe I would have gotten all because of the kind of personalized support and extreme attention to detail that I had from Jenifer. I couldn't think of any better person to work with next time than Jenifer and the Fortuna Admissions.

  • An Exceptional Consultant & Much More!
    1 year ago
    I'm grateful to have had the good fortune of working with Jenifer. She helped turn the tedious application process into a pleasant and rewarding experience and was both a guide and mentor to me. When I began exploring MBA programs, I was uncertain if my profile would be appealing to the top-ranked schools, and wasn't sure which parts of my professional and personal background to emphasize. Jenifer was extraordinarily supportive, patient, encouraging, and earnest in her approach, which helped ease my anxieties -- a lifesaver for a worrier like myself! Jenifer helped me explore and find hidden strengths throughout all dimensions in my background, which allowed me to craft a cohesive story that was both authentic and showcased my non-traditional sides as unique assets. Jenifer was ...

    I worked with Jenifer Raver and the experience was truly rewarding. I got into one of the T10 with a scholarship and will be heading there this fall. I remember it was last year this time when I had the first meeting with Jenifer. Having already talked to many consultants who tend to sell you the same pitch and rosy prospect, Jenifer really stood out for her tremendous caring for clients. It was from that meeting I made the decision to work with her and I couldn’t be happier. The application process can be a rocky road filled with surprise (both good and bad). At the time I was the only one applying for an MBA at my office and it felt like I was ...

  • Jenifer Helped Me Secure a Fellowship to My #1 School!
    1 year ago
    I worked with Jenifer to prepare for my Team-Based Discussion. Since I came from a non-business background (military), the Fortuna Admissions team helped me showcase my strengths while also accentuating my personality. After the mock interview and debrief, I grew more comfortable influencing fellow applicants, whom had widely different personalities and backgrounds that I was used to -- a skill to improve upon for any applicant! My performance during game day rounded out my application and ultimately helped me secure a generous merit fellowship. Jenifer was insightful, patient, and empowering. Overall, working with the Fortuna Admissions team will give you invaluable glimpse into what it could feel like during game day. Take my advice, you won't regret it.

  • Grateful For Jenifer!
    2 years ago
    I was approved for MBA sponsorship by my employer close to the deadlines for round two and was very stressed and worried due to the time constraint. The decision to sign up for the Comprehensive School Package with Fortuna was the best decision I've made this year. Jenifer did a great job in walking me through the process and setting realistic deadlines for each part. She was also very responsive and attentive to my concerns and worries all throughout the application journey. It was evident that Jenifer has A LOT of experience with top program applications and her tips and feedback regarding my essays was invaluable. My GRE scores were not the best, yet Jenifer's help in putting together and polishing my overall application resulted in me ...

  • A Mentor Beyond MBA Applications
    2 years ago
    I started my MBA applications quite late, around August. A good friend who got into a top 3 MBA program introduced me to Fortuna and I was very lucky to pair up with Jenifer. At first, I was not that articulate in terms of revealing myself or explaining why I want to pursue a MBA at this stage of my career. I had a hard time connecting the dots together, especially for schools like HBS, which requires a deep reflection on my past experience. Jenifer provided me some very informative and authentic feedback. Most importantly, she guided me to get to know myself in a deeper level. She was literally there for me every step of the way. Throughout this process, I had a ...

  • Jenifer Is FANTASTIC. Got Into My #1 M7 School Because Of Her!
    2 years ago
    To start off: I got into my first choice school! M7 school, and I'll be starting this fall! My background: I'm an Asian engineer with a low undergraduate GPA. I did well on the GMAT, but I had some serious disconnects in my story. I was having some real real trouble putting my essays together, as well as a complete application. I applied to 3 schools, and each application was more daunting than the one before. The word limits were too constraining in my opinion. How was I supposed to fit my entire life story into 500-1000 words? How was I supposed to stand-out from the rest of the crowd? What should I even write about? What makes me special? Jenifer helped me do just that. Jenifer, ...
