Karen Hamou and Fortuna are excellent!


When I first started looking at MBA programs, I didn't even consider applying to top schools as I didn't think I had a shot. I was originally looking to apply in round 3 2020 (last minute decision) and after the 30 min consultation with Karen, she gave me a lot of confidence about applying to top schools. That was really the sign for me (in addition to Karen's positive attitude) to chose Fortuna instead of the other firms I had a free consultation with. For the 7 months I've been working with Karen since then, I have had nothing but great experiences! She always has the right things to say, the right answers to my questions, she's always available and is the greatest cheerleader and supporter. From the beginning, Karen always made it a point to show me how much she believed in me and my chances of getting into the top schools I am applying to (even with a not so stellar GMAT or GPA). She knew that with my great professional background, lined-up recommenders and personal story, I could make a good compelling case for myself. She found the best way to tell my story, something I don't think I would have thought of or even would have know where to begin with without Karen. She also always made herself available any time I had a question, was nervous about something or felt down about my GMAT scores.

I would hands down recommend Karen to anyone looking for great guidance, support and encouragement throughout the MBA application process. I did the comprehensive school package, but since Karen is so immensely helpful, effective and efficient, I would say, get whatever package works best for you and I guarantee you'll be very happy you went with Karen.
