    5 months ago
    When I started looking for a admissions consultant for the purpose of my application to Schools of Business in the US offering specialized Master of Sciences programs in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, I stumbled upon a series of articles in Forbes magazine, which specifically mentioned Fortuna Admissions. From that point, I understood that it is a serious company worth working with. When Fortuna offered me a list of their consultants I noted that Jessica had an extensive experience with universities in the SoCal area where I wanted to apply. After an introductory call, I realized that Jessica would be the perfect consultant to work with during my application process.

  • Amazing Experience With Jessica From Fortuna Admissions
    6 months ago
    It has been a great experience working with Jessica from Fortuna! With her help along the way, I got into my dream school with a GMAT that is 20 points below the average. Jessica was always very professional and went beyond her way to help me during the application process. During the six month process, we had regular communication about my concerns, rewrote my essays countless times and discussed what the best strategy was in certain situations during the process. As an ex-admission officer herself, she had tremendous insight into the schools that I applied to and was always willing to share these. Big thanks to Jessica and Fortuna Admissions!!

    I worked with Jessica to help me with admissions to multiple schools. I wanted to the best chance at getting into an MBA program and Jessica was the perfect person to help me! She broke down the overwhelming application process into much more manageable chunks. She helped me clean up my resume so it was less wordy and more to the point. She helped me through several drafts of essays to multiple schools. Not an easy feat considering the number essays per university. She was always there to guide me in the right direction anytime she found out my essays were going off topic. She was there to prep me for my interviews to make sure I was prepared with content, help me get over ...
