Aringo and Lainie Cogan are real stars who helped me get accepted to 4 M7 schools- Harvard, Stanford, MIT, and secure a whooping 220k scholarship at Booth.
Lainie was incredibly supportive throughout the application process. I had many many rounds of revisions of my documents (resume revision alone had over 15 rounds of edits) but Lainie never showed reluctance. You can tell that she genuinely cares and works as hard as an applicant for making the admission happen. The Aringo process is long and methodological. It started with the strategy team led by Shimri, then Lainie and her magic. Later, each document went for a 2nd and 3rd review with school experts in addition to interview prep sessions with the entire team.
I would definitely recommend Lainie and the Aringo team to anyone who is looking for guidance through the MBA application process.

I got in touch with ARINGO in 2019, when I was working on my GMAT. Shimri advised me on an action plan and timelines which was super helpful. When eventually I got the desired score, I reached out to them again (obviously) and we had a detailed discussion on my profile and target schools. Shimri connected me with Lainie and shared the application strategy. From brainstorming ideas, editing essays, conducting mock interviews, there is no way I could have made it through this application process without ARINGO’s help. The feedback on essays by Lainie was honest and I could tell that she really wanted me to succeed. There were times when I thought the essays were school-ready but she pushed me to improvise them further. The result- Admits from Chicago, Kellogg, Stern and Yale most with scholarships. Thank you thank you thank you

I worked with Aringo on 3 applications and got admission in all of them with scholarships! Lainie Cogan, my consultant, was always responsive, professional, and straight to the point. Their best value was with the essays' writing and recommendations; they turn my and my recommender's words into coherent professional content and helped me choose the acute themes and structures. Additiaonally, they have adjusted themselves to the strict timeline I had with the schools and supported me even when I ask their help on short notice. The cost is not easy, but it got me to my desirable place, and now, when I am about to embark on this journey- I am very grateful that I invested the resources needed, and I am convinced that this will pay off in the future also financially.
Can you please mention the schools?

Aringo consulted me on MBA admission. I applied to 5 schools from the very top and got into 3 of them. I felt that Aringo had valuable insights on the schools and helped me focus on which schools are the best fit for me.
Lainie is a wonderful person which I couldn't recommend more on working with. She is a top-level professional and a true magician when it comes to her work.
In addition, I highly recommend visiting schools and speaking with current and past students. When you find the school which is a good fit for you, everything else is much easier and you would be making more of this investment.

Very professional and supportive. I got into 3/3 schools - LBS' Cambridge and Oxford with 3 scholarships. Lainie was amazing and it was great to feel that you have the top consultant there is, helping you and assisting you with EVERYTHING. I talked to several companies and Aringo was the most supportive. Highly recommended!!!
Furthermore, their pricing was great and competitive.
Aringo helped me shape my resume and answer all the difficult essays the best way possible.
Aringo also helped me prepare for the difficult interviews with mock interviews - how to answer in a meaningful way and how to make an impression.

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.

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.

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

With mediocre GMAT score and a lot of doubts, I used ARINGO's hourly services to apply to two Tech MBA program - NYU Andre Koo Tech MBA and Cornell Tech.
Throughout the entire process, Shimri and Lainie both were super nice and helpful. They were always available, clear and attentive. Also, they provided moral support when needed – a major part of the process.
The outcomes of my application speak for themselves - 2/2. I got into both into NYU Andre Koo Tech MBA and into Cornell Tech MBA with a scholarship.
All in all, I’m happy that I worked with ARINGO. Thank you!
