  • The Perfect Coach!
    7 days ago
    I worked with Jenifer throughout the entire INSEAD application process. Jenifer was able to provide a wealth of knowledge alongside bespoke advice to help me achieve an R1 offer. Through our detailed initial consultations, Jenifer was genuinely interested in my life and as such, was able to guide me in crafting my own story, showcasing and balancing both my strengths and weaknesses.

  • A Kind Mentor
    6 months ago
    I worked with Jenifer over the course of this past year to apply to dual-degree programs. She was great to work with – she was detail-oriented in reviewing my materials, and very responsive in making herself available whenever I had a question. She struck a good balance between talking me up so I’d feel confident (especially during interviews) while also telling me the truths that I needed to hear. More than that, she was a wonderful person to have on my team during the application process – she genuinely cared about me and made sure my story was authentic to me – which was only possible because she took the time to get to know me. Her mentorship went beyond just my applications. I am ...

  • Jenifer: Competence And Compassion Personified
    7 months ago
    I worked with Jenifer on my applications to 2 leading schools in the UK and I must say that I was really satisfied with her services. If you are serious about maximizing your chances at any leading business school, then Jenifer is a must-have on your team. Jenifer's strengths are: (a) She will push you (and that's a great thing!): This is by-far her biggest strength. During my applications, Jenifer gave me a lot of advice that felt like more work. She stress-tested each line in each material I gave her, and she never let even the smallest detail go unaddressed. While this means that you will work harder at your application, it also means that the quality of your application will be that much ...

  • Best Coach And Mentor
    7 months ago
    From the first time, we talked I knew I could trust Jenifer. I have only good things to talk about Jenifer while we worked together for many months. While working with her, I could tell that she cared about my success and my goals. She will build your confidence and lead you to the right path. Even when she is busy, she will make time for you and spend as much time as needed to help you. I feel that a consultant like Jenifer is very hard to find, with her commitment and passion she has put out into helping me achieve my goals. Many like me during the application will feel stress and anxiety, but just talking with Jenifer has allowed me to turn ...

    7 months ago
    Working with Jenifer has been an amazing journey. I felt the instant connection with her right during our first initial call and I decided to work with her, even though I was still undecided about the consulting companies right before the call. She was more than just a coach, but also a mentor at the same time. She supported me at some of my personal decision and genuinely had my best interest at heart, and would look out for my wellbeing in this somewhat taxing journey of MBA application. I could always trust her to have my back as she would encourage me on my GMAT journey, reassure me during my application process. I felt supported and not so alone in this arduous application journey. Her ...

  • Great Experience!
    7 months ago
    I worked with Jenifer for my MBA applications and had a great experience. I felt comfortable with Jenifer from the very first free consultation call itself, and knew that I wanted to work with her as my coach. She truly helped me understand that the application doesn't necessarily have to check every box (I was applying with only 3 years of work experience, lower than the 5-6 year average at the schools) and that highlighting my strengths and truly embracing my values and presenting them well is more important. I enjoyed working with her both on my essays and interviews. I got great constructive feedback from her on my interviews and it really helped me be more confident at my actual interviews. I would strongly ...

  • Jenifer is a coach with a heart!
    7 months ago
    Jenifer is a coach with a heart. My interaction with Jenifer started during my first half-hour consultation with Fortuna. I had no expectations of Fortuna then, and was undecided in signing up for a coach. But within the first few minutes of our call, Jenifer’s warm and friendly persona drew me in like quicksand. There was never a mention of business sale. Our conversation was personal and authentic. It was at that point I knew engaging Fortuna was the right move for me. Even though Jenifer was not a direct coach to my application, she played the role of a pseudo mentor and friend throughout my MBA application journey. She checked up on me every other week to see if I was doing well, giving me ...

    I worked with Jenifer from last May for my b-school applications and she not only helped me get into my top choice school, but she also helped me navigate a very difficult year and ensured I produced the best application that I could put forward. I struggled a lot when I was not able to crack the GMAT and apply in round 1, but her belief and faith in me and my capabilities kept me going, eventually resulting in me getting a 700+ score and an admit. She completely understood my aspirations and goals and even believed in what I wanted to do in my life and that was really important for me as it made working with her so effortless. It's safe to ...

    I was introduced to Jenifer by a friend of mine who had already worked on his MBA application with her and he was very happy with Jenifer as he got admitted into some of the most highly-ranked programs. I must say that Jenifer far exceeded my expectations. I worked with her for almost a year, a period in which she helped me in every aspect of my MBA application journey. After understanding my interests and objectives, Jenifer helped me find the right schools for me and motivated me during my GMAT preparation. Despite I wasn’t yet a client of her, she was constantly helping me and giving me precious suggestions on how to reach my goals. My first GMAT attempt did not go as expected, ...

  • Amazing Experience Working With Jenifer!
    8 months ago
    I had an amazing experience working with Jenifer! Not only did she help me with my application, like other reviews here said, but she was also a great mentor, and I learned a lot about myself from her during the process! I decided to apply to MBA mid-year last year, quite late, and storytelling/essay writing is definitely one of my weaknesses. MBA application can be an extremely stressful and vulnerable process, but Jenifer was very patient. She learned about me in detail to make sure I can tell the best stories about myself to admissions. It was so easy to connect and open up to her, and from her global experiences, I felt like she really understood my experiences living in different countries and working ...

    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 ...

    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!
    1 year 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 ...

    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.

    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 ...

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.

    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 ...

    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.

    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    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.

    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, ...
