  • All I Needed And More!
    1 month ago
    Working with Zach and Fortuna was one of the best decisions I made throughout this application process. As a "non-traditional" MBA applicant, I was reticent to apply to reach programs. Zach's encouraging and introspective comments boosted my confidence and supported me in crafting a wonderful application. On top of the guidance on MBA applications, Zach helped reframe my thoughts on my future career goals and helped me refine my story. Thanks to his insight and thoughtful feedback, I received an admit to the school of my dreams in an extremely competitive year. In addition, I had the chance to interact and work with other Fortuna staff members, who I found to be extremely supportive and professional. Highly recommend working with Zach and the rest of ...

  • Best Decision Of My Career
    3 months ago
    Working with Mr. White was the best decision I've made. With a combination of his communication as well as education experience, Mr. White was able to help my application and story on many different levels - levels that I did not know existed. His leadership style was laissez-faire (at least with me), encouraging me to take the lead and think deep within my life to proactively bring out new, creative ideas while he provided direction. This brought out the best in me and I was able to dig out stories and examples that I would not have otherwise been able to. He competently orchestrated these diverse stories into a well thought out application, as he understood my unique selling points and matched them to the ...

  • Zach Exceed Expectations
    4 months ago
    Zach is a fantastic Admissions Consultant. The first thing that struck me about Zach are his strong listening and teamwork skills. Zach listens, considers, contemplates, and raises questions. These skills, coupled with his design and philosophy experience, allows him to bring thoughtful, creative ideas to the table. Zach was invaluable in helping me with tasks both big and small, from refining my story and future goals to word edits and a more effective resume format. His broad experience across many domains really shined through here. Finally, when I had questions about a specific school, Zach went above and beyond to solicit information (and time) from other consultants at Fortuna. In summary: Zach really cares... and that's important. I give Zach my highest recommendation and am ...
