I was talking to ARINGO for about two years before I actually started working with them. Shimri understood my background, worked with me on a project plan and guided me throughout the process, and when I got my GMAT score we started planning the best timeline. ARINGO does not rush you at any stage. They understand that applying to a B school is a meaningful process and the client’s one of the biggest decisions with many things at stake. The genuine interest Shimri showed was the point I decided that ARINGO will help me achieve my target schools. I told him that while I can share my stories, I lack the flair of writing. He paired me up with Gwen who is a senior consultant at ARINGO. She was incredible to brainstorm with and quickly understood my background, my story, and my goals. Gwen was amazing to work with, and I am happy with my result. The team was very approachable and was always available for my queries. The edits that she had on my essays, made them exceptional. I ultimately made it through Chicago Booth (full-ride scholarship) and will join their upcoming class of 2021. I cannot recommend Gwen and the ARINGO team enough!

I can’t say enough good things about the Aringo team. The way they approach their clients is very unique and personal. Chaya was available anytime we needed to chat. She works meticulously. And even if we are not on the same page for the suggested edits, she would take the effort to explain me in depth until we both agree.
Her knowledge of what the school is looking for is very extensive. My essays got moulded accordingly. As I was playing only on my profile (with no GMAT score) and that too in round 2, I did not keep my expectations very high. But Chaya believed in me. I got interview calls from Ross, and Darden.
The interview preparation was also very structured. I was able to crack both Ross and Darden- I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so much, Chaya, to make those admit happen which I did not dare to dream of.
I am so grateful Aringo helped me fulfil my dream and land an amazing full time MBA admission!

I worked with Aringo on 3 applications and got admission in all of them with scholarships! Lainie Cogan, my consultant, was always responsive, professional, and straight to the point. Their best value was with the essays' writing and recommendations; they turn my and my recommender's words into coherent professional content and helped me choose the acute themes and structures. Additiaonally, they have adjusted themselves to the strict timeline I had with the schools and supported me even when I ask their help on short notice. The cost is not easy, but it got me to my desirable place, and now, when I am about to embark on this journey- I am very grateful that I invested the resources needed, and I am convinced that this will pay off in the future also financially.

I give the credit of my multiple admits to my amazing consultant Ms. Gwen Dreilinger and the entire team of aringo. After taking the GMAT, I started my hunt for the consultant that will suit me the most. I narrowed it down to two and chose aringo because of their personalized approach and honesty in assessing my odds to the programs I am intending to apply to. Gwen and the strategy team were able to help me brainstorm ideas and revise my essays so many times until they are perfect. I wasn’t an easy client, and my plans changed in the middle delaying my applications from R1 round 1 to round 2 without any issue from aringo. The application process can be very stressful. Gwen was a true partner who patiently helped me identifying my schools, my recommenders, giving me ideas to network, and everything that is needed. Gwen was very transparent and supportive at every step. And the final result was beyond my expectation- admits from Stanford, Wharton, Chicago, and LBS with some hefty scholarships as well.
I appreciate the dedication that aringo’s team has for their clients and I highly recommend them.

710 Q44 V44 (Online)
After doing the GMAT and scoring 710, I thought the toughest part is done. And I was so wrong. The struggle had just begun. Initially, I tried doing the MBA application on my own but eventually got confused (INSEAD alone has 7 essays…). As taking the MBA was going to be one of the biggest decisions of my life, I did not want to take any chances with the application process. I was also applying late and couldn't afford to wait for the next round.
Aringo believed in me more than I did. Rachel was there at every step and guided me thoroughly. She never spoon-fed but helped me think from a different perspective (they were very patient with me, we updated the CV over 7 times). And what I loved the most, she was always open to my suggestions (no matter even if they sounded silly). I was always given a rationale whenever the edits were given on my drafts. I got into 3 schools. I still remember when I saw the Congratulation email from INSEAD, the first thing I did was to share it with Aringo. I knew they would be equally thrilled.

The team truly cares about their clients. They just don’t blindly follow the application checklist but rather take time to know you better. I really liked the way they are transparent with everything. The feedback on drafts was always direct and supportive with ideas on how to strengthen the theme. The focus was more on honest opinion rather than sugar-coating words. That is what you need from your consultant- to be a critique, to make you realize your true potential, and of course, should be an expert in the field. I know the transition from being super anxious at the time of the start of the application process to be calm knowing that an experienced professional is guiding me. Big thanks to them.

I have been in my family business for quite some time and I now wanted to have a formal management education to prosper it further. For that, I reached to ARINGO and discussed my plans with Shimri. He took a good amount of time to know me on multiple levels, helped articulate my goals, and to choose the best-fit MBA program for me (MIT of course!).
Shimri team me up with Joy Pincus who is super experienced and has worked with many senior candidates in the past. She is brilliantly strategic in optimally using all the components of the application. She branded me well with my key strengths. Also, she always set the expectation right- when to expect the edits, the pending action items, etc. This calmed my anxiety as I was never guessing when the deadline was near. And the quality was never compromised. She genuinely cared and was equally happy when I received the acceptance letter from MIT. I am now headed to my school with a lot of gratitude.

I have been talking to ARINGO for years now, trying to decide how to build my profile towards my future MBA. This year, I decided to apply to several schools for a Master in Finance degree.
I worked with the amazing Danielle Marom, and the result was incredible. Despite not having a finance background, I got into one of the best schools in the world!
I love Danielle's passion, strategic mind, drive to help me apply, and naturally her writing skills and tips. Danielle, together with the entire ARINGO team, helped me shape my application, highlight my strengths and prepare the apps and interview preparations in the best possible way.
I really feel I could not have gotten into this top business school without the ARINGO team
Big thanks to the entire team. You're the best!

I was incredibly stressed about my MBA applications plus I was also preparing for my GMAT exam. I was unaware that MBA consulting companies existed; however, luckily I found out about Aringo and after reading great reviews about them I signed up immediately. Initially I signed up for 2 schools but I was so impressed by their service that I signed up for 2 more schools!
Their great strength is how they take time out to understand your story and then help you put it in your application. They tell you what is important for these MBA schools which I was oblivious too as I had previously thought that those things were just tirivial. They also helped me with interviews.
The beauty of their service is punctuality and they are always on top of things and quick turnaround!! Its professionalism at its best!

Overall a fantastic experience during an exceptionally difficult application season. Thankful and lucky I will be off for my MBA at a top program, largely due to ARINGO. I applied to 4 schools in total all above what would normally consider me due to me GMAT/GRE score. Nonetheless, we crafted a compelling story and I am off to a top 5 MBA program.
David and Shimri are extremely responsive and focus on the needs of the applicant and their goals. I would suggest the school package as ARINGO's is reasonably priced compared to others and you get the full suite of services focused on each essay and application.
Would highly recommend and currently referring ARINGO to my other friends applying
