Encouraging, Kind and Knowledgable - Highly Recommended

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by school email address [?]

I looked to Fortuna for help with my HBS admissions process after I was deferred in Round 1. I was paired with Malvina for interview coaching, and I really couldn't have asked for a better guide. She was compassionate in approaching the often stressful process of interview prep, and curious to understand me as an applicant. Moreover, she was clearly very knowledgable about the subject matter of HBS, and what specifically defines their interview process.

We started our coaching with an introductory call in which she sought to better understand my application and goals, while also providing a thorough summary of what I should expect in my interview (a robust written guide with tips and practice questions was also provided). She followed up with an hour-long practice interview with specific questions tailored to my background and the "HBS way." I'd note that there was an incredible amount of overlap between the questions she asked in my practice interview, and the questions asked in my actual interview, which allowed me to feel confident and well-prepared.

I engaged her services for the post-interview reflection as well, where she continued to offer incredibly useful support and direction.

In the end, I received offers to HBS and Wharton, and certainly feel that I have Malvina to thank!
