Great Instructor and Valuable Program

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

Several of my friends recommended the Manhattan Prep course, so I decided to sign up for the in person classes in Houston. The program transitioned to an online format due to COVID, but I never felt that the quality was compromised.

Jamie Nelson was a superb instructor and was always available outside of class times for questions or guidance. Going into the class, my biggest struggles were time management and test taking strategies. Jamie was able to clearly break-down the structure of the test and explain how to tackle each question type (short-cuts, alternatives to traditional algebra, eliminating answer choices, etc.).

If you're diligent with studying outside of class and stay true to the test taking strategies Jamie teaches you, there's no reason why your score shouldn't improve.

Admitted to LBS - Emma is a rock star

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by score report [?]

I opted for the Admissions Director's Evaluation over the Comprehensive Package because I already covered a lot of ground with MBA research and applications when I started researching consulting services. I was really just looking for a service that could help get me across the goal line. If you are pressed for time with applications or unsure where to start your MBA journey, I believe the Comprehensive Package with Emma could be very useful.

Emma was an absolute rock star throughout the whole process and knows LBS inside and out. She was INCREDIBLY responsive and did a great job of explaining what LBS is looking for in its applicants. Trying to distill my entire life's experience into 2 essays and an application form was an incredibly difficult task, but Emma knew exactly how to showcase the aspects of my life/experience that LBS values. This is an exceptionally difficult year for admissions, so your essays and your "story" are more important than ever - Emma will help you make your best self shine on the page.

Emma did such a great job with the Director's Evaluation that I also signed up for the interview prep with her. LBS has a much different interview process than most programs, so there's a lot of value in getting more bespoke tutoring.

If you're applying to LBS (or any top 10 global program), Emma/Fortuna is an investment you will not regret.
