P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Best Consultant

    I am glad to have found Julia in my application process very early on. The initial part of introspection to get to your origin story can be daunting but Julia made it seem much easier. She heard all my stories and helped me to decide which ones to include in my essays. I'm extremely grateful to her for the n number of iterations we had to go through to get our final story out.

    I am so glad to have found Julia Brady and Judith Silverman from Fortuna Admissions. I have contacted 3-4 different companies, and Fortuna was the only place that willingly connected me with one of its former clients. She really connected with my life story and helped me see the best approach to tackling the application process. Thanks to her efforts, I was accepted to both Wharton and Haas.

  • Exceptional Service
    1 year ago
    I worked with Julia Brady and Judith Silverman and they both did an exceptional job of helping me navigate through the application process of Wharton MBA program. Julia was very knowledgeable about the process and made sure everything was done correctly with a keen eye on details. As a cardiovascular surgeon, I needed Julia's business school-focused overview of the application as well as advice on key components of the test-taking strategies. She was a great resource and a sounding board for structuring my vision of the candidate that I wanted Wharton to recognize. I was accepted to Wharton for my EMBA just a few weeks ago.
