  • Jessica Is The Best!
    3 months ago
    I am so grateful that I found Jessica to help me with my application process. Before I found her, I wasn't sure exactly what type of help I needed, or even where to start - all I knew was what schools I was planning on applying to. She helped me prioritize what I needed to get done, gave great feedback that pushed me to think past the words in front of me, and checked in with me every step of the way. The insight and support she provided for me with my resume, essays, and even admissions decisions after I was accepted helped me navigate through it all with confidence. Highly recommend Jessica for all application needs!!!

  • Admitted To UCLA
    5 months ago
    I purchased hourly services from Jessica to help adapt my essays to UCLA and Yale. Given that I had already had essays to work from, I wanted to use Jessica's expertise on both schools to tailor my essays to the values of those schools. Jessica was very helpful with letting me know what the schools are looking for, how they would perceive what I've written in my essays and suggesting ways to cut down and redraft my essay to highlight a better story for myself. She always turned in the edits within the 24 hour SLA and often even faster. She helped with interview practice as well and was very proactive in reaching out to make sure I was on track and that there was ...

  • Very Helpful And Knowledgeable!
    5 months ago
    I had a great time working with Jessica throughout my MBA application process. Going into the process, I was apprehensive about how to approach MBA applications and knew that I wanted a consultant to help me along the way. What stood out about Jessica was not only her background, but I felt she genuinely cared about my success and not just giving routine advice. The feedback she gave to my essays and overall application was very logical, made sense, and pushed me to think more about my goals and why I wanted to pursue an MBA - things that I found really important beyond just 'getting in'. Many times throughout iterations and drafts of documents, I found myself being the bottleneck - which is a ...

    Jessica is a light and such an amazing coach to work with! She is so attentive to the admissions process and knows exactly how to bring her client's best foot forward. I valued her insights coming from an admissions background herself and always felt as though she had my best interest. 10/10!

  • Amazing Experience With Jessica Chung's Hourly Services
    6 months ago
    Jessica Chung was EXTREMELY helpful in my process of re-applying to UCLA Anderson School of Business's Full-Time MBA Program. Because I had already written my application essays and filled out most of the application, I came to Jessica for specific feedback on my essays and overall application approach. Not only was she extremely willing to chat over the phone and work through my essays and questions (she was very generous with her time!), but she was able to give me direct advice that was specific to Anderson. It was very evident that Jessica had Admissions Committee experience throughout the process and I have no doubt that Jessica would be an amazing resource for anyone applying to Anderson or another MBA school, whether for hourly services ...

  • Great Experience Working With Jessica!
    6 months ago
    I had a wonderful experience working with Jessica! She helped me tremendously with updating my resume, briefing my recommenders, and tailoring my essays for each school, all of which would have been really difficult to navigate not having any friends or coworkers who were applying at the same time as I did. As a result, I knew what to highlight in my applications and how to approach different problems and questions. Jessica was also quick to answer my questions and gave me confidence when I was preparing for my interviews, which meant a lot considering her wealth of experience working with students and in admissions herself. All of this resulted in an acceptance to one of my top choice schools with a fellowship! Would highly ...

  • Fabulous Experience Working With Jessica
    6 months ago
    Jessica greatly helped me throughout the stressful application process from start to finish. She genuinely cared for my success and gave me honest opinions from selecting which programs to select based on my background, statistics, and career interests. She is very knowledgeable about the process as she was previously part of the admissions team at UCLA. Without the help from Jessica, I would not have been able to finish and submit the best possible application to the schools of my choice. From knowing not too much about how to approach each application, Jessica provided detailed steps to tailor each application to specific schools. As a result, I was able to get accepted to a great program with a scholarship! I'd highly recommend Jessica to ease ...

  • Admitted To Kellogg & UCLA

    I had an immensely positive experience with Jessica! From the beginning, Jessica was warm and understanding. She helped me draw out my impact through several iterations of my resume. When we began brainstorming essays, Jessica pointed to specific things I wrote in the strategy questionnaire as well as information she gleaned from our conversations that she found resonant. Through the editing process, Jessica helped ensure that my voice and personality came through clearly, whilst one of the directors, Bill Kooser, provided very pragmatic feedback. She provided very actionably constructive comments when preparing for the video essays and interviews. When it came time for my Kellogg interview, she reached out to Willie Kotas, another amazing coach who is a Kellogg alum and has had extensive experience ...

  • Amazing Experience with Jessica - USC Full Time - Waiting on UCLA
    10 months ago
    Jessica is an amazing consultant, and I had a wonderful experience working with her. I went with Fortuna in general after Stacy Blackman told me not to bother with my top two choices (UCLA & USC). After the initial consultation call, I was given a few choices based on my needs as to which consultant I wanted to work with. After talking to them I went with Jessica, and by extension Lisa, as the coach of choice. She helped me with everything A to Z, and without her expertise and insights I would not have landed interviews at all of the school I applied to, and at the time of this writing I was admitted to USC and waiting on UCLA decisions. She guided me ...

  • Admitted to Top Choice Thanks to Jessica
    1 year 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

    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 ...

    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
    2 years 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!

    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, ...

    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 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!
