Overall, i was happy with the services i got. I got a reasonable discount the first time around which is what encouraged me to sign with Aringo. Most of the work done involved polishing existing stories so that they become business school ready.

I didn't take any school package, primarily because I couldn't afford them. I'm not a native English speaker, which is why I think I needed an admissions consulting service. I decided to go with Joy Pincus as my consultant and was satisfied with the decision in the end.

Pros:
Well organized.
Excellent time-keeping.
Value for Money.
Access to many additional resources like, documents, samples, essays, deadlines etc.
3rd person review of essays and online forms for free.

Cons:
Will be expensive if you don't know what you're doing.
Skype sessions are a big no, if on a budget.
Discount only applies once.
Hard to choose the right consultant due to many options.

Before I first contacted Aringo, I got a warm recommendation on Joy, but when I asked to work with her I was told she was too busy at the time, and would not take on another client in order to keep her high level of quality and commitment. I had to wait a little while for her to be available to work with me. Today, after Joy and Aringo helped me get accepted to all 4 schools I applied to – UCLA, Berkeley, Ross, Duke – and 3 of them with a scholarship, I'm also happy that I waited for Joy.
I want to thank Joy for her exceptional professionalism, availability, flexibility and sensitivity she displayed while working with me. After submitting the final application I thanked her personally for our joined work since I felt that regardless of the results, she helped me put everything I got into this process.
I would also like to thank the lovely Karin who accompanied me throughout the process, listed to me and always gave the right advice at the right time.
Thank you so much Aringo! Keep on helping candidates getting admitted to the top programs!

The story behind the success

Yes - school of my dreams

The MBA admission process for a top MBA program is different from anything I knew before. Not only it is long and exhausting, but it is conducted in a completely different language, especially for someone like me who is not used to present and "sell" himself. In this game, where you compete against other people, who are as impressive and successful as you, the Aringo contribution is substantial.
Starting with building the strategy – how to sell the story and ambitions of each candidate in the best possible way, selecting the most suitable schools – and until helping the candidate through the application process and preparing for the interview, the added value of Aringo made all the difference between success and failure.
Joy, Moshe, Karin and the rest of the Aringo staff – a big thank you for your uncompromising professionalism, your dedication and your ability to see the big picture. I have no doubt that without you I would not have finished the process with two offers from top programs and full scholarship to Chicago Booth!!

This is the time to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I cannot tell you enough how instrumental you were for my successful admission to Harvard MBA program and how much I loved working with you.
It was apparent to me from the start that your editing was a lot more than just correcting grammar or styling sentences; You put a lot of thought and effort into making my essays shine in every possible perspective, and you poured into them tremendous knowledge about each school. It was moving to see how truly invested you were in my success and how hard you worked to help me achieve my goals. You truly cared. It was also obvious that you love what you do.

After I considered and checked a number of professional consultants, I chose Aringo. Great choice!

I was accepted to Wharton and Chicago thanks to strenuous work, very professional strategy, loving and close service, and primarily a wonderful match fitting to me and my needs.

It was not easy, and I think I survived this rocky road mainly thanks to the efforts of the Aringo staff with me, and the endless support to which was I privileged and still am. Being that I believe that professional help is a critical part of any application preparation, I would be happy to take part in spreading Aringo's good name to the public.

A while ago I started the process of preparing applications for universities, with the intention to apply to 5 top schools in Round 1. Thanks to Aringo’s great help, the quick responsiveness and the terrific professional skill, I formulated a strategy and built a “plan of action” within a short period of time. When the interview invitations arrived, Aringo’s help in preparation was also great.

In the end I was accepted to all the universities I wanted (Harvard, Wharton, MIT, Columbia, NYU) including scholarships at Columbia and NYU.

Aringo's help was simply amazing, and I know that without it I would not have gotten to where I did (the year before, when I used a different consulting company, I applied to a number of universities and was rejected from them all.)
