REAL REVIEWS
YOU CAN TRUST

We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purshase Verification

We verify that the reviewer was a client by comparing the email address they provide with the company's database.

Step 2

Identity Verification

We verify the reviewer's identity through one of the following:

Official GMAT Score Report

GMAT Club Membership Term

School E-mail Address

(Admissions consulting only)

Step 3

We manually process all reviews, and if a review does not meet any of the prior criteria, the review will not be posted.

Step 4

We pay $20 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultan review only if we are certain it is a real review. If we cannot verify it, we won't issue a giftcard for it and we won't publish it.

GMAT Club requires that users verify their identity before posting a review.

I utilized Aringo's services for the following:

- Application advice to particular schools (LBS, INSEAD, Tuck and Northwestern)
- Essay writing critique
- Interview preparation
- Scholarship advice

Aringo's consultants had an incredible breadth of knowledge for each of my target schools. Their consultants were beyond helpful and went out of their way to attend to each of my application concerns, and helped to identify and improve the weakest parts of my applications.

In particular, I found their essay critique and interview preparation to be the greatest factor to strengthening my overall application.

I highly recommend Aringo to any potential applicant to the elite business schools.

I decided to work with Aringo after I talked to several admission consulting firms and almost all of them gave me hints that I "should consider executive or evening MBA program" as I have "over 8 years of experience". Michelle from Aringo was very friendly and after a great 30-min free consultation we agreed to work together. I am very glad I worked with Aringo, as I applied to three schools and was accepted to all three. Two of them gave me a scholarship. I decided to buy 10 hours package from Aringo and I was in control of how we are spending those 10 hours. I was paired with consultant and he really helped me to think about very important questions and be ready to write them in the essays as well as tell those stories during my interviews. He always gave me food for though and it helped me to dig dipper and to differentiate myself during application process. I highly recommend Aringo if you are about to apply for a business school!

Consultant: Tim Potter

I'm very happy that I chose to work with Aringo. Michelle is a pleasure to work with and she's assigned Tim to work with me based on the school I'm applying for. Tim has been a huge help and a critical part of my overall application from the beginning. He's very professional and has a lot of great ideas in order to make my resume/essays stand out. Tim is a very nice person but he also constantly challenges me to think outside the box and to aim higher, which is super important when it comes to resume/essays critiques. We've done rounds and rounds of iterations of my resume/essays and all of this effort has helped make my application much stronger.
He also did a great mock interview with me where he asked insightful questions that's very important to build my confidence and be better prepared.

Last but not least, Tim has always been flexible and accommodating my schedules which makes the entire process even smoother.

Overall, I'm very grateful to have worked with Tim on my application and eventually got accepted to the only school that I've applied for.

Thank you Aringo!!

To Danielle and the amazing Aringo Team,
Thanks for all the support and guidance you have provided throughout the application process, which most can agree is one very stressful period of 3-4 months. Everyone at Aringo has been very prompt and professional with his/her response and that is just the kind of team you need to work with while multi tasking with applications, work and other activities. The feedback provided was very detailed and therefore extremely helpful. All in all, thanks again for all your help and for now, looking forward to Harvard Business School. My best wishes for the year ahead

Recently, I graduated with an MBA from INSEAD. It has been an incredibly challenging, rewarding and transformational journey. I am sincerely grateful to my classmates, professors, mentors, and support network for making this possible. Working with Aringo was a first step in achieving the goal of getting into one of the best business schools in the world.
Thank you very much, Aringo team! Your assistance was extremely useful and efficient.

Consultant: Danielle Ulner

I chose Aringo because of its strong track record of students going to INSEAD and its unique selling point of helping applicants with a GMAT score of lower than 720 (me).

I used the CV refining service and spent a total of USD600 for what was about 6 hours worth of work. The main takeaways for me were:
- Formatting of the CV to INSEAD's requirements
- Helping me to highlight specific experiences which admissions would be interested in
- Helping to quantify successes and unique achievements

However, as I did not think that the services were worth the final output, I did not continue with the essay review package. That said, I felt that they were very professional in their services and were very responsive to enquiries, which I appreciated.

Eventually, I opted to work a platform with alumni who offer their essay-reviewing services and where you donate the fee to charity. I would highly recommend applicants to get an alumnus or two to review your essays before submitting them.

Had a similar experience with Aringo ( 2 full school packages). Very prompt and professional, indeed.

I agree the final outputs are not worth the fee but most importantly, the value-add of the services (what they initially promise and what it is at the time of the delivery), given the price tag, is dubious. I will be posting a very detailed review separately.
I'm satisfied

I worked with Aringo in 2015 and applied for ~7 b-schools in the US (my gmat score was 710).
I got accepted into 2 schools and had interviews with 3 more.
I had a good rapport with my consultant and he was very helpful and accessible. I worked only with this specific consultant and I have no experience with other consultants or the company in general.
I didn't like that my last application was much better than the first one. I know it makes sense, but I didn't expect to have such a steep learning curve while working with a consultant.
I was satisfied with Aringo, but I believe they can do better, considering the price they charge.

Consultant: Nikhil Bhatia

I engaged the services of Aringo to help with my essays. The story was mine but Nikhil helped make it strong and weaving into a nice story line. This is important. Also, Aringo was very professional. they informed me the charges upfront and i was not surprised. In the end, it helped me get into Chicago Booth. I am glad i took professional help,even though i have almost 16+ years of mid-level management experience. My story did not get me into Kellogg, but with Aringo and Nikhil's help, i got Booth. I am 2 months away from Graduating. thank you Aringo.

Consultant: Tim Potter

I approached ARINGO for help with my application to the Berkeley-HAAS evening and weekend MBA program. The previous year I made it onto the waiting list but was not accepted. So the second time I applied I wanted to make sure I was accepted. The consultant from ARINGO, Tim Potter, was great at providing feedback on my essays and helping prepare me for the in-person interview. Tim was very supportive, providing feedback by email and phone for my essays and in-person for the interview coaching. He also provided recommendation of other MBA schools with programs in my area of career focus. I would definitely recommend him to any other MBA applicants.

Consultant: Sriram Emani

I strongly recommend to work with Aringo's highly professional team of consultants. They found the right consultant for my needs, Sriram Emani, who gave me invaluable feedback on my essays and prepared me very well for the interviews.
I already had first drafts when I used his advice but I got a lot out of a few rounds of reviews and feedback. This kind of refinement and improvement process of my essays would not have been possible without such a professional and experience consultant like Sriram.
Looking back it was absolutely the right decision to go with Aringo, which helped me getting into INSEAD, the #1 business school in the world.
