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

I am very glad that I manage to find ARINGO on GMAT Club. I spoke to them and Jenifer and her team are very patient and keen to help me throughout the process.
As attested by many people, ARINGO has a very structured, collaborative approach to help me figure out my application story which is reviewed by multiple experts on the team to further refine them.
I spoke to Kfir, Jamal, Mark and Uri who gave me a lot of advice especially on preparing on the interviews. These really put me in good stead to have a genuine conversation with the alumni interviewers. Before that I have experts like Jen, Lainie and Shimri to review my written work and help me see areas of improvements that I would not have uncovered myself.
I got into 2 top schools (including 1 M7) with $80,000 in scholarships offered – ARINGO has been instrumental in guiding me in my application process. Thanks Jen and team!

I am thrilled that I chose aringo among all the admission consultants out there. Their experience is visible in their approach to the process.
The work started with some brainstorming sessions regarding my why mba and career goals. I spoke to Shimri several times and he gave me the comfort that I have the potential to get into good schools and with a scholarship, which was vital for me, as I will be moving with a family. Joy is a real professional (she has been doing this for 15+ years) and very patient and understands the anxiety of the candidate. I still remember my CV alone had 15+ revisions. Joy helped me steer through the applications with comfort and ease. And in the end, the promise was kept. I got into 3 top schools with $200,000 in total scholarships – which made my decision very tough. They do not oversell. I highly recommend aringo for their professionalism.

I did some research on many admissions consulting firms and decided to go with Aringo due to a recommendation I got from a close friend who got into MIT the previous year with their assistance. When I made my decisions, little did I know that this will be one of the best decisions I ever made! The one thing that I loved about Gwen and every single one of the ARINGO reviewers is that they don’t sugar coat. They are brutally honest with the feedback at every stage from strategy, school selection, resume, essay to interview. I could always count on the team with their critical feedback. My story for each essay was finalized and they helped me to put across the unique aspects of my profile with customizations to each school. The Aringo team doesn’t just do the work, they make it personal and guide you on all- recommendation letters, interview preparation, etc. With the guidance of Gwen and Shimri, I successfully admitted to 2 top B-schools and had the opportunity to select the one best fit for me. Thank you Shimri, Gwen, and Aringo for making my MBA ambition a reality.

I first met Aringo 2 years ago, I was debating if my GMAT score, would be enough for a top business school. I was actually prepared to compromise on some tier 2 schools, and then I met Shimri and the Aringo strategy team. Shimri assured me that, my profile, a programmer in a big tech firm, can be presented in a strong manner, and I should aim high for some dream MBA programs. I worked with the incredible Chaya Benyamin on 5 applications and received interviews and admissions to all and some scholarship money too (including Cornell Tech, NYU Tech, and UCLA).
I could not have done this without the entire Aringo team who share incredible knowledge and experience. Their process includes multiple rounds of reviewing, commenting and strengthening. Chaya is my NUMERO UNO. I owe you so much!
Off to UCLA of course, for a life-changing experience. Thank you Aringo!

From my first conversation with Aringo (Shimri) to the one-on-one attention I received from my fantastic consultant (Ori Elkin) and the rest of the Aringo team, my experience was excellent. Coming from a technical background, they helped me understand what MBA programs would be suitable for me. Ori shared with me his impressive experience and offered me constructive feedback to help me shape a compelling story for my essays. With two scholarship offers, I chose Kellogg, for its strong brand and the great sense of community. I am very eager to join this incoming class of 2021 and embark on this new journey.

Reaching out to ARINGO was the best decision made for my MBA applications. Shimri and Chaya guided me from day one and helped me with everything that I needed for my applications. I come from an unorthodox background, both personally and professionally, and ARINGO helped me turn my diversity into my strength! They helped me align my essays, shaping my resume, etc. ARINGO’s process is very streamlined and they are very resourceful. I applied to various top programs and got 5 out of 5 interviews. The result- I received admits from MIT, Wharton, and Kellogg! The icing on the cake was Wharton admit with a whooping full scholarship!!! I could have never got 3 M7 admits without ARINGO. Kudos to you guys!

I am writing this review in the middle of my ARINGO experience, which is terrific. At first. I was intimidated by the daunting application process but after speaking many times to Shimri who answered all my doubts and calmed me down I jumped right into it. Shimri and I spoke on a daily basis and he is an awesome advisor. I decided to work with Gwen Dreilinger and could not be happier with our joint efforts. Shimri and Gwen devised the application strategy so that I am not overwhelmed with the process. They made it simpler and their extended knowledge of what each school is looking for made the difference in my essays. My final applications were reviewed by other ARINGO school experts and everything was up to the mark and the interview preparation was excellent.
Thanks to ARINGO, I will now be attending the Fall 2021 class of the prestigious school – INSEAD (my number 1 choice). I did get interviews to Chicago, Wharton, and LBS as well (but who cares, INSEAD is the best 😊 )

With a 690 on GMAT, I started my research on admission consultants and that’s when I came to know about ARINGO. I thought since I could not break the barrier of 700+ I would need to compromise on my applications but ARINGO's strategy team head, Shimri Winters, thought otherwise. He evaluated my profile and gave me the confidence of applying to my dream schools. With Rachel Segal's incredible support and storytelling skills, and the ARINGO team, I got 4 out of 4 interviews and 3 admissions, 2 with scholarships. I am now headed towards joining the Cornell Tech program for the class of Fall 21. Looking back I can undoubtedly say that ARINGO was the best investment ever made. They really go the extra mile to provide all the support and work towards a common goal of getting admits. Thanks ARINGO for believing in me and making my dream come true!

Having experience in Cyber Intelligence and the Air Force, I wanted to do an MBA to help me achieve the next level in my career goals. I decided to work with aringo as they seemed very sure about my profile and chances. In my first interaction with Shimri, he helped me understand what the schools are looking for and how my application can stand apart from the pool. Danielle Maron, my amazing, incredible and best in the world consultant 😊, and the complete team at aringo helped me throughout the various MBA applications stages. At every single stage of the process, I could see the value being added to my cv, essays, and other application components, which made my application stronger and stronger.
Post submission, I started receiving interview calls and was surprised to see the resources available by aringo for the interview preparation. I made it into INSEAD, UCLA, and Darden and was super content with the aringo team.
