I worked with Aringo to apply for several top business schools. The AMAZING consultant Lainie was there all the way for me through the process any time of the day 7 days a week. We worked together closely, and eventually I got into 4 schools with big scholarships to 3 out of 4!
Aringo helps you find the right strategy tailored made for you and consult you with how to express it in the right way through the essays.
I highly recommend ARINGO as consultants and Lainie Cogan specifically, as their unique method and the large variety of professionals really make a difference in bringing your application to its best.

It was a pleasure working with Sriram. He was amenable and affable for the application process. He helped me tremendously to bring out the best stories from my life. He gave great feedback which helped me articulate the stories for the applications. For instance, he advised me to improve my videos essay by giving feedback on the content and speaking style that assisted me to speak authentically. He has good communication skills that helped in improving essays. He was able to respond to queries within the expected time. He has great MBA consulting skills. I would highly recommend Sriram for MBA consulting.

ARINGO helped me to get into INSEAD, they were quick, flexible and supportive!
Lainie helped me to figure out what is the most important thing I should include in my application and write them in the most unique and interesting way. She answered me days and nights and help even though I have started very close to the dead-line. Thank you !
Shimri also was always available and guided me though the processes.
I am happy that I chose the hourly package because I feel that I got exactly what I needed with a better value for money than the large package.

Thanks to ARINGO, got into 4 out of my 5 schools, including HBS. Kellogg and Ross also offered full scholarships… 😊, Thanks ARINGO you are great! Special thanks to Lainie Cogan who is the best consultant I could've asked for.
It is yourself who gets admitted based on your own merits, but ARINGO will help you bring out the best in you, in a way which you would not be able to do on your own. They also help you manage the process while holding a full-time job, which could be very difficult and stressful.
I would not have been able to achieve this successful outcome with the help of ARINGO.

My eyes were set on the top two European business schools. With Aringo’s help, I not only got in both but received a scholarship at one too!
Shimri’s guidance in the essays really helped me demonstrate my personal and professional impact and Shay’s interview preparation took a lot of uncertainty out of the process and made me confident to narrate my stories. After multiple iterations of tweaking the essays and practicing the interview, I was extremely happy with how my applications turned out. Everyone at Aringo was also very professional and punctual and my queries were always responded to extremely quickly.
I would highly recommend Aringo to everyone as I would not have the privilege to be accepted to two top business schools without them.

From the moment I first spoke to Derin I was immediately impressed with her dedication to my application. I was unsure exactly which programs to apply for when I first started working with Derin. She took the time asking me what my goals were, my strengths/weaknesses and what I was looking for in a program. We then narrowed it down to 3 schools, Kellogg, Stanford and Berkeley. To say that Derin was there for me every step of the way would be an understatement. Any question I had she answered as quickly and thoroughly as possible. She helped me create my applications in a way that still felt like "me". (Which was something that I was initially worried about.) I decided on attending Kellogg, to which I received a fantastic scholarship. I could not recommend Derin enough!

When I was initially debating whether to even choose a consultant in this process, I vetted a number of options - ARINGO, MBAmission, MENLO coaching, Accepted, Art of Applying, etc etc. Applying with a lower GMAT score was a huge concern for me (taking it again wasn't an option) and while the other companies (both listed and not listed) made my low score the focus, Sriram at ARINGO saw my story for what it was, and believed in me from the beginning.
His belief, and his ability to see the candidate behind the numbers is uncanny. He knows how to get the right stories out of each person, and was able to help me really craft my personal brand + tailor it to each school I worked with him on.
Of all the schools I applied to - I was waitlisted at 1, and got accepted to 4, ultimately now matriculating at Wharton.
10000% could not have done this without Sriram's help - he helped me not only improve my storytelling, but also hone in on why I really wanted business school to begin with (since that often becomes unclear in the depths of the application process) and reminded me that my story meant more than the scores/numbers I was so worried about.
Could not recommend Sriram and ARINGO more - truly, they understand that we are all unique people at the end of the day, and all have value to add in the MBA classroom.

Not only did I get into the MBA school of my dreams (IESE Business School in Barcelona - DO NOT MISS OUT ON THIS!), but Aringo also got me a scholarship, which covered the cost of their consulting service.
They worked with me from step 1, and were kind and responsive throughout the process, that included 1-on-1 meetings, phone calls, emails and extra time (free of charge). I am confident their service assisted me greatly.
Shimri, Lainie and the team was amazing and simply got the job done!
Thanks Aringo for being there for me and helping me achieve my MBA goals. Thank you

I was admitted to the school of my top choice with Aringo team's help. My consultant Shay was instrumental in this process so a huge thanks for his support!
The toughest part of the process was understanding my profile/strengths/weaknesses and building a convincing narrative. As part of the package, I could get as much feedback as I requested for and this was great. The feedback provided was always so insightful - the team will make sure that your story is structured and communicated in the right ways.
Thanks also to Shimri for the interview prep session - the school package at such rate couldn't have been better!

Shimri and the team at ARINGO are incredible and I cannot speak highly enough of them. If you are stressed out about the application process or unsure of how exactly to spin your story they will be of enormous assistance.
I spoke to 4 other consultants before reaching out to ARINGO at the recommendation of a friend at HBS. The consultants at ARINGO were super responsive, not pushy at all and extremely knowledgeable. I started working with them on an hourly basis and I wish I had bought a package in hindsight because they blew me away. Their insights turned my application around 180 degrees and addressed the tiny details that make all of the difference. They took a stressful process and made it a constructive and reflective journey from drafting the essays and CV all the way through the interviews.
Bottom line is that I got into all the schools they helped me with and a year into my MBA I can say it was worth every penny!!
