Overview

About Aringo

Aringo is an admissions service focusing on students who have a score below 720 on the GMAT. This is a notable point. Great work experience is important, but many MBA applicants are equally qualified in terms of work experience. Without a strong GMAT score, applicants will not stick out. Students with low GMAT scores require other strategies to swaying admission committees.

This firm also publishes statistics on how often its applicants get into popular programs, with independent verification performed by Ernst & Young. Potential applicants should familiarize themselves with these numbers, as well as the results of their “admission chances calculator” provided free online.

Basics

Aringo offers a number of different services with each of its packages so students can focus on the support they need. For example, a student who is excellent at writing essays but nervous in interviews could opt for spending most of their time with an interview expert, rather than editing papers that are already good. These packages are available in 5, 7, and 10-hour setups, as well as a full service package to cover one school.

Their website also offers free materials, including published essay questions, tips for visiting campuses, and a thorough overview of the entire admissions process.

Aringo Cost and Contact Info

Prices vary based on the package, starting at $1,150 for the 5-hour package and $3,900 for one school. Aringo also offers a per-hour plan with a flat rate of $260 (which is more expensive, per hour, than any of its other options). Discounts are available for high-performing students, and some refunds are available.

Aringo prefers to be contacted through their website at www.aringo.com, but also accepts emails to admin@Aringo.com for matters the contact form doesn’t cover.

    :

    I stumbled on the Aringo’s website while I was preparing my essays and I was very happy I’d find them. The guidance was very clear enough. They had a lot of sample essays to work with and seems affordable. I also recommended their website to my recommenders as they were first time recommenders to an MBA program and did not know the structure of the write-up.

    Aringo pros – They have various price plans and, although I took the most comprehensive plan, overall I got from them the cheapest quote. Tim my consultant was amazing. Michelle, the CEO, talked to me every few days to make sure I was on track. besides them, because I took the full comprehensive package, I also got my essays and applications reviewed by 3 different consultants.

    Cons – yes, it is pricey , but as I got into the school I wanted, it is absolutely worth it

    • Advice to current prospective applicants: I absolutely loved ARINGO. I worked with Tim, applied in r2 to only 3 schools, but got into 2 of them, with a little scholarship.I applied to 3 schools and got into two. I chose Columbia as I really want to experience the Big AppleMy advice - research the schools . Aringo can definitely help you get in, but it is up to you to decide which school to go to...

    A lot of fake reviews here i am guessing. Do not go for ARINGO. They are absolutely not worth the money they charge. It is better to go for a smaller consultant as there are no advantages that Aringo provides. While my consultant was very good, the company itself does not provide any research or insights. Also, post sales support is non-existent.Chaya, the CEO disappears once you make the payment. so its basically just you and the consultant, why pay so much for a one-to-one then?

    Being that I had limited funds to spend on a consultant I throughly researched the differing admissions consulting agencies before selecting ARINGO. I was especially attracted to ARINGO because of it’s flexible packages and prices and I must say I was blown away with the experience! I My consultant, Sriram, was incredibly responsive, he offered amazing feedback on my resume and essays, and he was especially judicious in how we used the hours I had spent!
    I was fortunate to get into Yale SOM, NYU Stern, and Stanford GSB and Sriram was integral in crafting my essays. I have to point out my Stanford GSB essays in particular because I submitted what I thought was a wonderful essay and would have used up my final hour for that essay. Sriram, knowing I could do better, gave me a fantastic set of notes and told me he only used half an hour for the essays so he could take a look at the next draft. ARINGO went above an beyond my expectation and I know I wouldn’t be attending Stanford GSB if it weren’t for the amazing feedback!

    I’m what these companies would call a non-traditional applicant, meaning I have a very unique background and goals after my MBA and so on.

    Therefore, I wanted to make sure I was working with someone who really understood me, what makes me different and why I need an MBA. While I talked to several different admissions consultancy companies, I didn’t get the feeling most of them “got it”. I could just tell by the recommendations they would make but Aringo was really different. I got a different feel from them and decided to have them help me get accepted to my dream school. I am glad I did, because as a first time applicant, I got in! Which might not sound as impressive as it really was, because going into the process I really had no idea what I was doing. So I was lucky the Aringo guys were so patient and understanding of “newbies” like me!

    I had a really great experience with Aringo. I was teamed up with a consultant the fit my needs perfectly and really helped me turn around my application. I also had three mock interviews with other consultants at the company which were very helpful. I feel like I wouldn’t have gotten in without them.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: Stern 2018
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Apply to the schools that actually specialize in what you are passionate about. Talk to students at these various schools. The vibe really differs from school to school and understanding where you best fit will make the application come more naturally.

    Pro:
    They took me as a candidate with bad GPA, low work experience, and high GMAT score, who also applied on round 3, and got me in a top school. Couldn’t ask for more. The consultant who worked with me invested a lot of work working with me on my resume and essays. I had no idea how to do it myself.
    Also, being under round 3’s deadline, we didn’t have too much time and he did a great job helping me meet deadline.

    Cons:
    Looking back at my application I think I could, today as an MBA graduate, do the application myself slightly better, at least for some of the essays I wrote.

    • MBA Program & Grad Year: 2015
    • Advice to current prospective applicants: Not a good question here - really depends on the school. - Generally, I think you need to know the school exceptionally well - classes, curriculum, etc. - Make sure you point out what value you add to the program. - Show them you want to get in the program more than anything else.

    Had a great experience working with my consultant for all of my schools. He helped me with everything from organizing and developing my story to helping strengthen my essays and when the time came, interview prep. He was very candid and straightforward.
