I'm a recent MBA grad, two years ago I used Aringo to help me with essay writing. As an international student, I was looking for support not only in grammar/semantics but also tailoring of content and guidance.

Aringo was a great help! Always replying with in a day (sometimes hours) with candid and reliable feedback. The way the company is established allows one to benefit from one’s direct consultant as well as other consultants that as grads from other top B-schools and can collectively give you a broader and more nuanced perspective. For instance, my consultant was a Columbia grad, he was the lead consultant as I applied to Tuck and Kellogg and occasionally he pointed me to a Kellogg grad for interview practice and final essay review.

I ended my application process with three top 10 offers. I recommended Aringo to a few friends and it was mostly successful for them.

Two extra tips -- 1)it usually pays off to negotiate the initial price 2) be active in selecting the consultant that better fit your needs

What means/ how did you go about negotiating the price? $3999 is the price for one school application review.

Additionally, how were you selective? did you interview each consultant?

Thanks

Hi there! We no longer negotiate prices, however you can ask about potential discounts - for example we offer GMAT Club members a discounted rate!
Also the price is $3900. :)

I can't speak highly enough of Aringo and its consulting services. I was hesitant to start with a consultant because of the price, but ended up deciding it was worth the investment. Michelle at Aringo spent an hour on the phone with me answering all of my questions and making sure I was ready to use a consulting service. Working with Tim was enjoyable, professional, and incredibly efficient. He answered all of my questions, was quick to respond, and very good at elaborating on any of his recommendations. If you are interested in a great consulting relationship, I highly recommend him!

Aringo, and Lainie especially, helped me understand myself better and form the best version of myself for the schools to see.
I chose Aringo because I felt they align best with my personal values and how I view the application process.
They help you understand what business schools look for, they help you understand what are the strong and weak points and how to present them in the best way possible.
I had a more than a few hard times during the stressful application period, and Lainie was always there for me to help me go through it.
I strongly recommend working with Aringo, could not have expected a better service. In the end, I got into HBS :)

I used Aringo's 2-schools package. And I got accepted to HBS! I do not think I would have done it without Aringo and especially without Joy. Her expertise on the issue of essay-writing turned this stressful process into a pleasant experience. Joy also spent countless hours helping me find my story and figure out the proper way to express it.
I was in your position a few months ago and so I can totally relate to trying to understand whether admission consultants are worth it. I can tell you this: every dollar spent on Aringo was really worth it! In fact, in my opinion, Aringo offers a high value/money proposition as well.
All in all, I highly recommend Aringo and Joy Pincus to all people trying to figure out how to put their best foot forward in the application process! Thank you Aringo!

A warm recommendation!

I took two full consulting packages with Aringo.
Working with Aringo was a true pleasure.
The entire staff are real professionals. It seems like my success was at least as important to them as it was for me.
The consultant I was working with, Joy, was always available (so times also during the weekends). I worked on my applications while working full time and needed this kind of flexibility very much. I believe that without Joy's help I wouldn't be admitted to LBS.
Aringo provides a warm and optimistic environment, making the admonition process much easier to deal with.
I warmly recommend Aringo!

Consultant: Chaya

I took two full consulting packages with Aringo, and I could not be more satisfied with the process and the results. My consultant Chaya was very collaborative and helped me to make my application oriented towards what Business Schools are looking for in a candidate. In addition, I got full support from Hila, who helped me with any question or dilemma I had throughout the process.

Eventually I got admitted to both business schools with scholarships. I highly recommend Aringo for anyone who's going through the process of getting into a top MBA program. Their advises and experience throughout the process is invaluable.

Best prep service out there

Consultant: Hila

I do not know how to start describing the amazing aringo Israel time.
so friendly and professional. they helped me get my top 2 choices when I had only 3 weeks for application after passing the GMAT exam.
In addition, they were great at preparing me for the interviews as well. they were persistent with their feedbacks even when it was not pleasant to listen to.
I do not think they could have done anything better
I hate to talk bad at competitors so I will not mention names but I have to mention the bad service I received from their biggest rival in Israel.

I do not know where to start thanking Aringo.

I was in contact with them for over 3 years, getting free advice on what pre-MBA career to choose to maximize my MBA chances. Eventually, I went to management consulting which strengthened my why MBA story.

During the whole admissions process, Aringo were great. the strategy team helped me decide which schools to apply to and to what career goals to focus on. I ended up applying to 6 business schools, got dinged from 2 and was accepted to 4 (Ross, Kellogg, Booth and Sloan). All 4 came along with various scholarships ranging from $40K to a full scholarship in Chicago.

I could not be happier with my consultant, Gwen, who guided me throughout this process. She is AWESOME!

The main strength of Aringo is an exhaustive holistic review of each and every document. These reviews are done by graduates of these programs and add the inside information that is needed for each application.

I loved working with Aringo, I love the results, It was amazing!

Consultant: Kfir Catalan

So far, I still could not believe I can achieve my dream school. But I know that without Aringo and my consultant Kfir Catalan, I can never get there. Before that, I firstly would like to thank Chaya Pomeranz, the CEO of ARINGO International. It’s her effective work that made me catch the deadline of my first school and also it’s her who introduced such a wonderful consultant for me, Kfir Catalan. The communication with KC is very efficient enjoyable. He always gave me constructive feedbacks within one day. Also, he is very clever. He understands how to analyze the essays and what schools really want to know. He also taught me how to combined traits of different schools with my advantages in essays. Besides, he is very patient. Generally, all of my CV, every essay and even the LinkedIn had more than ten versions. Also we had very frank talk about different ideas of essays and tried to achieve agreements though communication. Finally, he is highly responsible and strict. We did more than 10 times of mock interviews for each school and every time he gave me the feedbacks based on my performance. Even sometimes I already found the answers were good, he still hoped to be more perfect. I think today’s victory was the endeavor of KC, Aringo and me. I really appreciate Kfir Catalan, Chaya Pomeranz and Shimri Winters. For those candidates who are still hesitant, just choose the Aringo and you will find it will be really worthy.

ARINGO was just great!

My essays, CV, basically everything would not have been as good as it was with the help of ARINGO. Because their consultants really know, what they talk about. They know, what to focus on, what not and what is perceived as important for which school.

Saved me a lot of time and got me into my favorite business school!

They are very fast and accurate in responding, very flexible and really a great help. For all the material you have to submit, further tips, the interview preparation and even on general GMAT tips.

Can just recommend them!
