If you are deliberating over which admissions consultants to hire, look no further. ARINGO played a pivotal role in turning a distant dream of mine into a reality, helping me obtain admissions offers to five programs - including a full scholarship to one of them. The team with which I worked (Shimri, Gwen, Jenifer, and Emily) was masterful in assisting with the crafting of my story and application materials, highly attentive to my particular case, and consistently available. Five stars are not enough to express my satisfaction with ARINGO's services and my gratitude for the contribution the team has made to my future.

I got into Tuck with a high scholarship. Gotta thank Aringo for that.
Lots of pressure and unknowns when applying, so thank you Gwen for spectacular work on helping me fine-tune my profile and guiding me through the process. Applied to three top schools and it would have been 10x harder alone (if at all).
My suggestion for you the reader is to go for the school package for several schools and apply for more on your own.
I'm sure Shimri would advise the same. A BSchool education is an expensive one, and even a 10% scholarship in a top school would buy you this service back.

If you choose purchasing advising service I highly recommend Aringo. They are well organized and work professionally. Since the price is not negletable I would say that if you have the time and energy you might be able to write the application forms by yourself, but be sure that you'll work harder and will have to find what the schools want to know about you and how to present it.
The process was stressful for me, I was emotionally invested into it and it had it toll. My adviser, Gwen, did well in soothing my fears by pointing out and reminding me what are my key strengths. She taught well me how to write and how to "sell" my story better. It is something I'll carry with me.
Bottom line - with Aringo's help I've been accepted to two out of two schools, they have made good work in consulting me, and I'm sure they'll do great job for anyone else.

I've worked with Aringo from the very first start.
I did my research before, but came to the conclusion that Aringo is the best admissions consulting company out there.
I purchased full school packages, and it was definitely worth it!
I got in to my top choice school and to another school, both with scholarships!
I had the privilege to work with Gwen as my consultant. She was amazing!
She responded super fast, was very thorough and organised, and was available to me whenever I needed her.
For each school I was given all the information I needed to get going with the essays, and her insights were extremely helpful and important.
In addition, Shimri was always there to help and give a second opinion when I needed it (and I nagged him all the time!)
I am SO HAPPY with this decision, and I really couldn't have done it without Aringo!

Not only that I Gwen helped to get me into Olin with a full scholarship, but she also made that whole process fun and efficient. I didn't have much time and I had quite a few not ideal constraints that required creative thinking and flexibility. Together we managed to build a strong application very quickly. It's a very stressful process, and it is very important to have experienced advice that can guide you through it. Gwen was super supportive, confident, and on spot in helping me how to highlight my key strengths and accomplishments. I am very grateful. Thank you so much!

I worked with ARINGO on applying to 6 top schools: Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, MIT, Chicago and Columbia. I received 6/6 interviews and 4 amazing offers (all with fellowships).
My consultant was the best and helped me with other questions about immigration strategy, picking school that is a good fit and morale support whenever I needed it. She is worth her weight in diamonds.
Looking at the my work before and after getting their feedback is like night and day, it's amazing how ill equipped I was to do this on my own even though I thought "how hard could it be". Just looking at the fellowships $ it pays itself and even without it - worth every $ I spent!

After scoring 710, and with 4 weeks to application deadlines, I chose to work with ARINGO. We worked on 5 schools, and I got into Wharton and Cornel Tech. Starting at Wharton this July. Couldn’t be happier!
Working with Gwen Dreilinger and Shimri Winters, they were extremely attentive and available. They helped me figure out which schools I wanted to apply to, how to structure my resume and overall application, and even prepare me to the interviews I got (with specialized consultants depending on the interviewing school).
I thought long and hard on which admissions consulting services should I hire. In retro spec I know I made the right call.

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!

I have nothing but praise for the service I received from Aringo and from my consultant. I received constant feedback, many times in a matter of hours or even minutes. I could always talk to my consultant and to others in Aringo.
Other than great feedback and very high preparation, both for the application and for the interviews, I received help for even the smallest things: writing a formal mail to admission in different school, my consultant went over my application before I submitted it and I could always call them and ask questions.
I got into a top school and needless to say, I am very pleased with every part of the service. I couldn't ask for more.
