I signed up for a Comprehensive School Package covering two schools - INSEAD and Tuck. I was admitted into both.
The team at Fortuna Admissions played a significant role in helping me achieve this. My lead consultant was Caroline Diarte Edwards and Jessica Chung was my expert coach.
The first step of the program was a comprehensive strategy questionnaire, containing questions that kick started my process of self reflection. The questions guided me to think carefully about my values and key experiences, and this formed the core of all essays that I wrote.
Both Jessica and Caroline were always very quick to respond to my questions. Jessica consistently ensured that I was on course to complete my applications on time. I found the frequent conversations and brainstorming sessions with Jessica to be extremely useful in helping me pick the right experiences and personal qualities to focus on in my applications. I really liked that there was no spoon-feeding during the process, and instead the focus was always on helping me think in the right direction, therefore ensuring that my essays were completely authentic and reflected my own story.
The team was always supportive and encouraging, giving me the confidence to express myself in my application. As a result of their guidance, apart from having admits from my dream schools, I also have a better understanding of my own strengths and weaknesses, and what areas of growth I should focus on in the months leading up to my MBA.
I strongly recommend working with Fortuna Admissions for your MBA applications.
The course covers all the major type of questions covered in the Verbal section of the GMAT. Explanations for each of the concepts start from the very basic and move all the way up to the advance level. Moving through the course material really develops the skills, confidence and methodology required to jump straight in to solving the questions on the GMAT, without getting stuck or confused. But the real value of this course lies in the Scholaranium practice platform. The quality and quantity of questions and explanations is fantastic and really backs up the course content. Creating practice quizzes with customized difficulty level, timing options and topics really helps in doubling down and fixing weak areas. The difficulty level of the Critical Reasoning questions really made me feel like I was ready to face whatever the GMAT threw at me. I very strongly recommend this course to anyone looking to increase verbal scores, especially non-native English speakers.
The scholaranium platform provides three key things, that are invaluable in strengthening competence on the verbal section of the GMAT:-
1. Broad range of topics and difficulty levels on questions
2. Analytics to point out weaknesses
3. Customization to target weaknesses
By creating custom quizzes, and working towards towards setting time targets of 90 sec per verbal question, I was able to improve my verbal performance considerably. Official GMAT questions, from Official Guides and GMAT Prep software are a precious commodity. This tool provides the ideal playground to learn and develop skills needed, so that by the time you start solving official questions, you are already comfortable with timing and concepts.
