  • Admitted to Top Choice Thanks to Jessica
    4 months ago
    I chose to go with Jessica and Fortuna after doing a few initial consultations with different companies. After the initial consultation, Fortuna paired me with Jessica because her background closely aligned with mine and the schools I was most interested in. I come from a fairly non-traditional background and had scores slightly below the average for my top school, but Jessica helped me frame my experiences and define my story in a compelling way that helped set me up for success. Our conversations were always candid, constructive, and actually helped me reflect more about why I am pursuing an MBA and what my ambitions are. I was admitted to my top choice school after applying in Round 2, and I don't think it would have ...

  • Jessica - Great Help With Part-Time Program Applications
    5 months ago
    Jessica was great in helping me define my story so that admissions can see the full picture of who I am and why I am planning to go to business school. I worked with Jessica specifically on the resume and essay pieces where she would ask questions and provided feedback making me reflect on myself, career, and aspirations. During the grueling task of completing multiple applications, she helped to keep me on track to meet deadlines. She often would respond and provide feedback on weekends as well, I could tell she genuinely wants to help applicants achieve their goals. I have heard back from one of the programs with positive results, and fingers remain crossed for more success. Jessica certainly will help you put your ...

  • Great Experience Working with Jessica!
    11 months ago
    I had a great experience working with Jessica Chung at Fortuna on consulting for my MBA applications. Jessica was always quick to respond as I asked her questions throughout the process and helped keep timelines on track so I never felt overwhelmed. She did a great job not only editing my essays and resume but in helping craft my overall admissions story and brainstorm ideas for essay topics that would differentiate me from other applicants. I applied to three schools, got interviews at all three, and have so far been accepted to two with major fellowship offers! I would definitely recommend working with her.

  • Low GPA Admit At T15 Top Choice School Thanks To Jessica
    1 year ago
    I started working with Jessica about a month before my application deadlines and was looking at 6 different top tier schools. Given I had a sub 3.0 GPA and 6 school applications to complete in one month, I knew the odds were stacked against me, especially since I needed to have every part of my application perfect to make up for the lackluster GPA. I looked around at reviews for admissions consultants and immediately came across Jessica's profile and decided to work with her. During that month, Jessica worked tirelessly with me to make sure every aspect of my application was top notch. Her experience and guidance were both invaluable and knowing my tight deadline, she would always get back to me on questions or ...

  • Wonderful Experience with Jessica Chung from Fortuna Admissions!
    1 year 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. Jessica proved to be a very knowledgeable, professional and easy to communicate with a person. She correctly understood my background, ...

  • Amazing Experience With Jessica From Fortuna Admissions
    2 years 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!!

  • Highly Recommended - Global EMBA Applicant

    I worked with Jessica on an application for a highly competitive global EMBA program. Jessica took time to do a deep dive into my background to assess my strengths and areas for improvement, using her expertise in admissions and coaching to craft a clear plan and strategy to make my application shine. With less than a month before the application deadline, she helped me re-focus my narrative and broke down the application process into manageable pieces. We re-tooled my resume to make it more results-oriented and to highlight the significant impact I made across multiple functions and companies. She also provided invaluable and candid feedback on my essays and overall helped make the application process much less stressful. Ultimately I was admitted to my top ...

  • Great experience working with Jessica
    2 years ago
    I could not have asked for better experience working with Jessica. We focused on my top choice only and I ended up being admitted to the school. Throughout the few months we worked together, Jessica was always responsive, discerning and honest. She provided valuable insight of what the program’s admissions committees are looking for, which helped me keep my essays in the right direction. I also appreciated her providing clear timeline of how the application should move forward and making sure I was on track. With Jessica’s help on my interview skills, I was able to walk into the actual one feeling confident. I would highly recommend her to any future applicants. Thank you Jessica!

  • Highly recommend!

    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 ...
