REAL REVIEWS
YOU CAN TRUST

We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purchase 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

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 $10 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultant 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.

Consultant: Ravit Warsha

Regards from Fontainebleau INSEAD campus!
Applying to business school with little work experience and 710 in my GMAT was not a good starting point and I had some doubts regarding my chances of being accepted to the top schools.
BUT, after being accepted to 3/5 schools, I think my worries were for nothing… My consultant Ravit did a fantastic job in finding the interesting things in my profile to talk about. The strategy stage, QA and final review by an alumnus from each school I applied to made the real difference… and last I had great interview prep before each of my interviews…
I am currently halfway through my INSEAD studies and loving every minute. I could not have achieved this without your help!

Aringo review

This review is for: ARINGO School Packages
Consultant: Ravit Warsha

I will start with the most important facts: I got a deal for three schools applications with Aringo - Ravit Warsha was my consultant. I have applied to three schools with Ravit's help and to a forth school on my own. All four schools had an average GMAT of 20-33 points above my 660 score. The fact that I got accepted to all three schools I applied to through Aringo (Cornell Tech, HEC Paris, IE), and got rejected from the only school I applied to on my own (Cambridge Judge), is the bottom line.

Ravit was extremely tentative - even in relaxed periods, I don't think I had to wait for more than a few hours for a response. Not to mention when the application deadlines were approaching.

Finally, Hila Yerushalmi from Aringo was very honest with me regarding my expectations and the schools I can get accepted to - together we built a list of schools which were all very challenging for me to get accepted to, but also realistic. I am very thankful for Hila's advise on the schools, and scholarships I chose - aiming as high as possible with my background.

Consultant: Lainie Cogan

When I sought to realize my dream to study at one of the top schools in the world, I decided to go through the process with the most professional support I could get, in order to achieve the best results.
I was fortunate enough to face a dream decision - Chicago with a full scholarship versus Stanford, and I know that a great deal of it is thanks to Lainie, my consultant who supported me throughout the entire process: the dedication, professionalism, availability, and ability “to get into my head” in order to translate my experience into the best application possible.
I have no doubt that in such a competitive environment, when demand for top programs meets new heights each year, it is of utmost importance to seek help with experienced consulting services in order to maximize one's chances for success. I feel that Lainie helped me convert what previously seemed only as a dream to reality.

I had a great experience with Lainie, and wholeheartedly recommend working with her!

Dear ARINGO team, THANK YOU! I applied with you to three schools and got into two with a substantial scholarship (IESE and LBS).
I am currently studying in the best institution in Europe (LBS of course) and loving every minute of it

Hila, Shimri and co, I would not have done it without you.
and Joy, my consultant, wow. I know you have been doing this for over 10 years, full time, but still, wow…
The strategy process really set me on track, and the guidelines to what to write in my essays and what not were spot on.
The huge advantage of ARINGO is definitely the school specific experts and I remember several conversations with Shimri over LBS strategies.
So big kudos to you ARINGO. Keep up the good job!

Consultant: Danielle Marom

I could not have gotten into business school without Aringo. I purchased their package and was teamed up with a consultant that fit perfectly with my somewhat unconventional career goals. She was there to help me through every step of the way and really helped me improve all of my essays. I ended up getting into three schools on a full scholarship at each, including my top choice. The process is still stressful either way, but I would have been lost without my consultant. I was also teamed up with a few other consultants for my interview prep, which was really helpful.

Consultant: Ori Elkin

With 690 at the Gmat and much lower than average GPA I thought top 10 schools would not be realistic for me. After a few calls with the management team at Aringo (Hila and Shimri) in which I shared my background story, I became much more confident about my odds getting in to a top school. Ori Elkin was my consultant and he did an incredible job, helping me build my story through the different essays for the different school in a very time pressured process (started early August for a mid September first round applications). End result - got into 4 out of 6 schools. Couldn't do it without the Aringo team!!!

Aringo is a Bridge to your MBA

Consultant: Joy Pincus

I had a fairly short time between my GMAT test and the first round deadlines which meant I had to make a decision mainly based on my initial conversation with Hila. They understand their clients' mindset and don't try to push their product. Aringo's biggest advantage is their strong personal relationship building with their customers, which doesn't end with essays and getting ready for interviews. Aringo helped me navigate issues I had with my previous employer, offering advice and practical solutions leveraging their experience within the process. I can honestly say the process has been efficient, productive and fruitful. (I got into two out three schools with a nice scholarship offer). Two thumbs up from me! good job guys!

Consultant: Chaya

My husband and I applied to all of the spanish schools, with only 1 year post BA experience and not so great GMAT scores (his was 610, mine was a bit higher). We worked with Chaya Benyamin , who was professional, supportive and availble. The all-inclusive package was a great choice- it covered EVERYTHING from A to Z and while the service was not cheap it was worth it- we were accepted to all 3 schools we applied to! We definitely recommend ARINGO for anyone who is thinking of applying, especially in a couple, which is a field they specialize in (so I've learned)

Crucial for my acceptance

Consultant: Sriram Emani

I was kind of late in the applying process, I didn't have a good GMAT, and was very worried about my chances in an MBA. I decided to hire a consulting company. ARINGO was not cheap (I would say in the range of other companies). I got a deal for 4 full school applications. I was lost in the application process with all those essays. Sriram was crucial in my acceptance in an MBA. He walked me through all the questions of the essays. He replied quickly and I was very happy with my final product. I ultimately got accepted in two business schools. I definitely recommend ARINGO services.
The strengths: consultor were very strong and suggested the right changes on essays.
To improve: I would rather to have a defined process, since the beginning, of communication, review process and timeline.

I had a great experience with ARINGO and here is my MBA admission consultant testimonial…

When coming to choose my admission consultant I only had price in mind.
I had a feeling all consultant use the same people and methods.
From the first conversation with ARINGO, I understood how wrong I was. Unlike other consultants who told me how great I was and how I should maximize my application (and pay them for many schools), ARINGO's strategy was different. The CEO spoke to me very honestly and to the point not trying to push anything. She spoke to me about my weaknesses (yes, a male software engineer with 640 in the GMAT and no managerial experience is a weakness that needs addressing !!!) and about my chances at each of the schools I mentioned.

At the first stage, my entire profile was sent to a 4-person strategy team. I got a lot of feedback regarding how to show my past experiences and future career goals. This helped me focus on what the general message I am trying to convey is. My consultant (Joy) was amazing!!! She is a very experienced consultant and in a short time my application was ready. Well, that is what I thought  but ARINGO have two more verification processes before submission which involve alumni from each school going over my entire application. I did a few interview preparation sessions with Shimri and Shay and had a great interviewer who understood my story and my potential.

ARINGO's statistics just got better with another LBS proud student!
Way to go ARINGO! And thanks
