Company Information

ARINGO’S roots were planted when our Founder, Gil Levi, was accepted at Harvard, Wharton, and INSEAD with a GMAT score of 650. Gil received a full, merit-based scholarship at Wharton upon admission. He formed ARINGO’s methodology based on the essay-writing tools that he originally developed as an MBA applicant.

ARINGO’S clients have been accepted to top B-schools such as Harvard, Wharton, Duke, INSEAD, MIT, LBS, and Kellogg with GMAT scores below 700. Since its inception, ARINGO’s heavy investment in research (over 3,000 man-hours and counting) has yielded a collection of invaluable resources for our clients.

ARINGO employs a Round Table Strategy with each consultant collecting expert opinions at the critical decision points throughout the application process. The final product is always reviewed by a second consultant to introduce a fresh perspective and ensure that it meets ARINGO’s standard of excellence. The collaboration within ARINGO’s team, which includes former admission committee members as well as experienced consultants with marketing and writing skills, contributes to the success of our clients’ applications.

  • Amazing Experience Working With Sriram – Real Expert In This Field. Highly Recommend!
    3 days ago
    After vetting multiple firms, Aringo’s commitment, service, and plan to help me get into one of my dream MBA schools really stood out. From the very first consultation, I could tell they were true experts in this field, and I really liked their ideas for which schools to target and why, what my strengths and weaknesses were and how to overcome them, and what the right game plan would be – and indeed they were successful since I’ll be attending one of my top schools this year (top 15 in the US). With lower test scores but a great background (professionally and personally), I knew I needed expert help to show business schools I had the relevant skills and background, and that’s where Sriram, the consultant ...

    Post-MBA I plan to play a pivot role in the health tech field and I know the brand of my MBA will play a large role in my success. This is why I sought an MBA consultant to help me put my best forward. I got way more than that working with Sriram at ARINGO. He was amazing at helping share my story through my applications and this fall I am attending my dream school, Columbia. Worth every penny.

  • Great Support! Wharton + 100k Scholarship
    5 months ago
    The Aringo team was so supportive. Sriram, specifically, as my coach, was incredible. Going into the application process I was concerned about having test scores that were a bit lower than required of the top schools. Sriram helped me position myself and my story in the best way possible. He was clear with his feedback and helped me understand the right strategies to gain the best result. Not only was I accepted into Wharton, but I also received a 100k Wharton Fellowship, fully merit-based. I could not have done this without the help of Sriram helping me find my best strengths to highlight to overcome the lower exam score. Lastly, one of Aringo's strengths is their process of feedback to make sure no stone goes ...

  • Oxford!
    1 year ago
    I was a little worried regarding MBA consultants in general as they seemed to be more focused exclusively on b-schools from the USA, disregarding those from Europe. So it was a very positive surprise when I found that Aringo is not the only expert in USA b-schools, but as well those from Europe and UK, with multiple admits in those Universities. If you want to take every possible step to secure a place in a top MBA, you should contemplate Jenifer and Sriram of Aringo as your consultants.

    Thank you ARINGO for making INSEAD happen.😊 The team is full of super professionals and I recommend them highly. What I loved the most is their commitment to the client. Sriram decided the strategy with me that we followed in the whole process. He helped me with all- career goals, refining the essays, CV preparation, selection of schools, recommenders, and whatnot. There is no cap limit on interactions and he was always available for any random question (even after office hours- thank you😊). If you want to get into a top B school, choose ARINGO. You will not regret it.

  • Highly Recommend Working With Sriram!
    1 year ago
    Coming from an over-represented application pool, my biggest concern was finding a way to get my application to stand out. Sriram immediately alleviated this concern. He is one of the most creative people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He helped me to sort through all of my professional and extracurricular stories to choose the most impactful ones for my essays and then spent countless hours working to make those stories as interesting and exciting as possible. We worked together on 5 schools and there were countless times where I felt stuck on my essays for those schools. Each time this happened, Sriram was available to help me brainstorm new ideas or ways to improve on the essays I was unsure of. ...

  • An Admit With Tuck- Sriram Is Nothing Short Of Excellent!
    1 year ago
    I had a few introductory calls with multiple consultants but after speaking to Jen, I knew I wanted Aringo’s expertise in my applications. Jen was really excited about my candidacy and introduced me to Sriram Emani. I was amazed by the experience Sriram holds besides the MIT degree. He helped me define my career goals which was the key component of my applications. I am the kind of person who does not like to talk too much about himself. Sriram ensured probing me with the right set of questions that made me think about stories on both professional and personal front. The feedback on the essays/resume was constructive in a manner that motivated me to improve. Simple gestures like proactively asking if I need any ...

  • Will Help You Reach Your Highest Potential
    2 years ago
    Sriram was great helping me build my story and highlight my strengths. Working with him also made me realize what concentration I should pursue and why. I was already happy with his work, but the best was yet to come when he helped me prepare for the interviews. If you work with him, I recommend talking with him on the phone and having Zoom meetings, not only for the interview preps but also to understand his personality. Do not think he will be doing the work for you and be ready to receive constructive criticism. I was aiming for the top 25 programs and applied late in the last round (April-May). I got offers from UNC, Emory (50k), Georgetown, UF (full scholarship), and USC (60k). ...

  • Best Decision I Made- Excellent Consultant!
    2 years ago
    I applied to my top choice school at MIT Sloan in Round 3 and I got admitted with Sriram's help. I cannot thank him enough. This was the best decision I made. I would say I have a strong profile, but I wouldn't consider myself an extraordinary candidate. By going to Sriram, I was able to really fine-tune the highlights of my application and story that make me unique to craft a great application. Sriram far exceeded my expectations. Sriram got me to think critically about my writing, videos, and interviews in a completely different way. He was so patient and made everything seem so easy. He helped me carefully handle some of my weaknesses and bolster my strengths. There were some cases where I knew ...

  • Complete Value For The Money - Souldn't Be Happier With The Outcome
    2 years ago
    I want to start by saying I had 100% success rate with Sriram because I got accepted to all three schools with $$ (2 in the top 5 US MBA and 1 in top 10). He has been of tremendous help during the application process and something that stands out about him is his response time with feedback (<24 hours). It took a rigorous effort to narrow down to one admission consulting services company. I had introductory interviews with 8 different consultants, making my pros and cons list for each. After my phone call with Sriram (8th call), I did not have to go back to making a list. I instantly signed up with Aringo. The biggest advantage with Sriram is that he's a storyteller (by profession ...

  • You Won't Regret Choosing Sriram
    2 years ago
    Sriram helped me apply for 4 schools: HBS, GSB, Sloan, and Wharton. I got interviews from GSB Sloan and Wharton and got offers from Wharton and Sloan. My time for the application was tight (only about one and a half months), but Sriram guided me through the whole process with experienced techniques, impressive strategic thinking, and quick turnaround. He patiently discussed with me on every essay, commented with super detailed suggestions, and helped me avoid numerous mistakes I would have made if I applied myself. He also conducted a series of mock interviews with me which helped me aced the real ones later. I truly appreciate Sriram's great help, and I would recommend Sriram to any MBA applicants without hesitation.

  • Sriram & The Aringo Team - You Are The Best
    2 years ago
    I got into Duke, my dream school, and I owe you everything. I took some time to write this review, but now that I am graduating from Fuqua, I decided I should write a candid review about the people who helped me get into my dream school. Let's start with the end. I am an Indian male engineer. I worked with Aringo on three schools and got into Ross, UCLA (40k scholarship), and Duke. I could not do this without Sriram and the entire Aringo team. Sriram's strategy thinking, essay assistance, turnaround time, attention to detail, and the simple fact of caring a lot, made the entire difference. After Sriram, I got a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th review by other consultants from Aringo and then some interview ...

  • Yea! Aringo & Sriram You Rock!
    3 years ago
    Hi all, I was not sure at the beginning if to use MBA consulting firms or not. After speaking to Aringo I felt they could really add me value to my application and I worked with them on 5 schools. Despite coming from a competitive background (male engineer) and having a low GMAT I felt the confidence from day one. I got offers from Tuck, Yale, and Cornell with some nice scholarships too. I could not have done it without Sriram and entire Aringo team. Thanks, guys! Worth every penny.

  • Thank You, Sriram!!
    3 years ago
    From start to finish, Sriram was the most fantastic consultant every step of the way. When I received my GMAT score I was initially devastated that I would never fulfill my dream of attending Columbia for my MBA. I just so happened to come across ARINGO when browsing other potential MBA programs. It seemed too good to be true. From the first time I spoke to Sriram, I felt that he truly believed in my potential to achieve my dream. He was so dedicated and committed to helping me create my application. He answered any question I had, at any time of day. I started my MBA at Columbia in 2015. Working with Sriram was the best decision I ever made!
