About Fortuna Admissions

Fortuna Admissions is a consultation service with a strong team of former MBA admissions staff. Their consultants also include a number of advisors in other fields (student resumes, career services, etc.) to help round out the expertise of its members.

Basics

Fortuna Admissions offers a wide variety of services, starting from early-stage planning to school selection, application strategies, school visits, and all the paperwork needed to be done. Their primary offering is a full school package, but they also offer services for rejected applicants and hourly consulting for those who don’t need quite as much help as the full package provides.

One major difference between Fortuna Admissions and other consulting services is that users can book time with a former Director of Admissions. While this costs more than the standard service, it also provides access to some of the most experienced people in the entire admissions industry. Some students feel the extra help more than justifies the cost.

Fortuna Admissions Cost and Contact Info

School packages are available starting at $4,500 for one school with an additional $1,400 for the Premium School Package, which includes guidance by a former Director of Admissions. Fortuna Admissions has a relatively low rate of increase for additional schools. They also offer a full review of your chances for $525, a Director of Admissions’ evaluation for $1,600, and hourly consultation starting at $345 or $460 for Directors. Discounts are available for larger bookings.

Fortuna Admissions can be reached by email at info@fortunaadmissions.com, as well as through a profile questionnaire on their website at www.fortunaadmissions.com. They can also be contacted by a Skype Call (to FortunaAdmissions). For Skype calls, it may be best to set up an appointment through email before calling.

    :

    I chose FA because of their team experience – consultants previously worked at INSEAD Admissions team and have a first hand experienced in selecting candidates. Knowing that INSEAD doesn’t support reapplications, I though I needed to maximize my chances.

    We started off by making a deep dive into my experience (through a 2-to-1 Skype interview) and preselected “stories”. Going forward I worked with a very skilled, structured and disciplined consultant who helped me to fully prepare my application in about 5 weeks.

    Her feedback was insightful and she clearly knew what the school expected.
    I also had access to the former Director of Admissions who reviewed my application and gave a number of valid comments. Her involvement was minimal though (not that it was needed, but somehow I had expected a bit more).

    What I also missed is a bit of a personal touch and support. 80% of communication is by email and comments are given directly in the essays (in track changes mode). Calls were limited which sometimes left room for misinterpretations and unanswered questions. I feel that I could have made my pick even better if we had 2-3 more calls.

    The interview preparation was just right – I got a list of questions and we had a nice long and thorough mock up interview. That helped me a lot, and I got some (very much needed) encouragement from my consultant.

    Generally the guys know their job well – I got accepted in the last round, which is all that matters at the end of the day.

    • Business School Attended / Year Graduated: INSEAD / 2015
    • Your MBA Application Advice*: Quality process, quality service, great consultants, but don't expect babysitting and handholding. These guys are not therapists. Their job is to make your essays better and they are good at it.
