Michelle and Lin were very responsive throughout the application and always provided critical feedback. I chose the hourly service since I only need to polish my essays. I was able to get most of my essays done within a short amount of time, and received interview invite from 5 out of the 7 schools I applied.

Once I received the interviews, Michelle was able to line up with different consultants from those schools to conduct mock interviews with me. I find it really helpful as I get to know more about the schools as well as the specific things each school is looking for.

Overall I had a great experience with ARINGO and would definitely recommend it to other applicants!

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!

I would recommend ARINGO 100%. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. The mock interview was almost identical to the school MBA interview and the staff was very responsive. I communicated with my assigned consultant via cell phone and email anytime.
The staff was very helpful while completing the essay and other information, with great analytical and writing skills.
Although I did not had to complete the GMAT because my program is an executive MBA, the assistance of ARINGO made my admission process fairly simple and brief. I would have spent a great deal of time going through the admission process by myself.

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!

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!

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!!!

I HIGHLY recommend Aringo!! I can't stress this enough.

Let me give you a brief of my background.

I'm from the Dominican Republic with a major in economics and 5 years of experience in commercial banking. I scored 620 in the GMAT. I applied to Goizueta, Fuqua, Kelley and McCombs. I ended up at Goizueta.

My experience with Aringo, and especially my consultant, Rachel, couldn't be better. These guys are truely professionals and accompany you in the whole process.

I started with a single package of 3 hours just to try the company, and eventually went to a more elaborated plan. I highly recommend the latter. The expertise of these people is amazing. What I found most useful was not that they help me with to correct any grammatical error (English is my second language), but how good they are at taking out the best of you.

I really enjoy the process. They respond very fast. I remember telling Rachel that I will miss a lot waking up and read in my inbox the new comments she had made on my drafts. I miss it! It was such an interesting and fun process.

Overall my experience was great, and I really really don't have anything to complaint about. I will always be grateful to Rachel and Chaya, the CEO, with whom I also spoke and was really really nice and handy.

Consultant: Pankaj Agarwal

I contacted Aringo to help me to prepare an application package. The attitude for my request was very professional. I was assigned to a very good consultant, Pankaj. He really showed me week points in my application and gave valuable pieces of advice how to improve all package. The result was amazing. Several top schools invited me for interview and finally I accepted an offer from one of them. The completion was high and without Aringo it would be difficult to get in the short list. In addition, the mock interview was very valuable, since I was asked many the same questions during real interviews. Thanks a lot!

Consultant: Shimri

It had been more than a decade since I had been through the rigors of drafting school applications.
Nonetheless, based on career progression, I felt I was a strong applicant and thus only applied to one of the top 10 schools initially.

One observation is hardly basis for meaningful inference, but after receiving a negative response, I gathered the application likely had been too unfocused.

Pleasantly impressed by Aringo's website, I thus signed up for the hourly services for help in structuring the many essays required by the two others schools that most interested me -both also clustered around top 10s-.

From the inception, I was pleasantly impressed with the structure that Shimri, the consultant I worked with, helped convey to my applications.

After devoting lots of my limited free-time to the process, I was honored to receive a positive response from both programs, and look forward to start my studies.

For completeness, I have to say I am fortunate to count as close friends a handful of graduates from Booth and HBS, whose helpful advice I also could rely, though Aringo was the last go-to point. Highly recommended.

Consultant: Joy Pincus

Overall, i was happy with the services i got. I got a reasonable discount the first time around which is what encouraged me to sign with Aringo. Most of the work done involved polishing existing stories so that they become business school ready.

I didn't take any school package, primarily because I couldn't afford them. I'm not a native English speaker, which is why I think I needed an admissions consulting service. I decided to go with Joy Pincus as my consultant and was satisfied with the decision in the end.

Pros:
Well organized.
Excellent time-keeping.
Value for Money.
Access to many additional resources like, documents, samples, essays, deadlines etc.
3rd person review of essays and online forms for free.

Cons:
Will be expensive if you don't know what you're doing.
Skype sessions are a big no, if on a budget.
Discount only applies once.
Hard to choose the right consultant due to many options.
