What are you looking for with Forte? Forte is basically a network of and access to admissions, students, alumni, other female applicants, and admissions consultants. If you already know what you're going to do with your application, perhaps it's not worth it. I find that admissions have prioritized their attention on MBALaunchers (as well as those in MLT, etc.). I've been able to have 1-on-1 calls with admissions because of MBALaunch. It's made a lot more aware of what I needed to work on for my application.

Just got another rejection... Is exiting to FAANG or MB really this hard? Trying to go tech.. or mbb, but not getting anywhere. I have 2 masters (mba, ms) from top schools, been in consulting for over 10 years, I am confident that I know my stuff well..but still I keep getting rejected. Interviewed with Google, Amazon, Cisco, McKinsey, and a few others and every-time there is something that is not a match... are the hiring managers looking for like 100% match? That will never happen!!!
