“Joy, I’m on a plane right now heading to Seattle, and I wanted to say thank you. In January we set up a tough challenge – to get admitted into an MBA program and start it this year. You helped me get things in order, understand where I stand and use all the resources to succeed. Working with you was pleasant, thorough and inspiring. I’m so glad that we’ve met and I’m sure many others will enjoy working with you! It was intens and fun.
That’s it, I’m going to school 🙂 Thanks again!”
“Joy is very proffesional and availble, she gets me well and helps me personalize the application. makes me think of the application it ways I didn’t imagine.”
“Joy is very professional, working at a good pace. She is a phenomenal writer, helped me a lot.”
As you know I recently received the news and got in a couple of great schools, one of which was my top choice (MIT). These decisions mark the third (!) time that I tried applying to various schools and never before got in. Your thorough, diligent work and analysis to my situation, as well as advice on what to do beyond the application, were crucial to my success, not only in achieving admission from these schools, but also in guiding me through my the introspection process and therefore affecting my personal growth in other areas as well. I wish to thank you and the Aringo team from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all the hard work, the quick and urgent responses, and the smart advice.”
“When I started my application process for an EMBA program, I was looking for support from someone who understands the nuances of an executive program in comparison to a full time program. This is one of the main reasons I chose Aringo in the first place.
Throughout the process, I found the entire Aringo team attentive and supportive as well as always there to provide a word of advice. Applying to two top schools simultaneously while working full time with almost weekly travel is not an easy task, and I was lucky enough to the Aringo team to guide me along the way. The results speak for themselves – I got accepted to both schools I applied to.”
A few months ago I got a warm recommendation for you, and when trying to coordinate with you it became clear that you were overloaded and unwilling to compromise on the quality of the service you offer even at the cost of losing customers. The day after you helped me get in to all four schools to which I applied (Berkeley, Ross, Duke & UCLA), three of them with a significant scholarship, I’m so glad I waited for you. I want to thank you for the extraordinary professionalism, availability, flexibility to adapt to me and not the other way around, and sensitivity you have shown throughout the period we worked together. After completing the last application, I thanked you personally for the work together because I felt already then that regardless of the results, you helped me to get the best from myself. Special thanks to the amazing Karin who accompanied me throughout the process, listened to my speculations, and always knew to give the right advice at the right time.
Thank you to the ARINGO team, and continue bringing as many students to leading universities in the world!”
“Joy, I got the admission of Schulich MBA. Thank you for all you have done in the past 2 months. I couldn’t achieve that without you. You are so professional and thoughtful.”
“Joy, a minute after submitting one application and two minutes before submitting the next one, I wanted to thank you for all of my heart, for all the help, the support and the incredible insights.
No matter what the outcome is, I really believe I wouldn’t have gotten here without your help.
I know that it has been a rushed working process, and I very much value your patience, understanding and efforts.
It’s an amazing experience working with you!”
“Working with Joy was a great experience. She was very patient and attentive and offered great help for my process. She is very available, very balanced between giving me guidance and letting me “do my own thing”. I can understand her notes and apply them to the material.”
“Just read the comments you sent, and wanted to stop for a moment and to thank you Joy. I know this is your job and I know that’s the service I’m paying for, but those comments and feedbacks are really priceless and I feel how each version is better than the previous one. You make me work hard and think a lot about each and each sentence I write. So thanks again.”
“Joy, thank you so, so much for being patient with me throughout this whole process…seriously. I learned so much about the application process and grad school in such a short time span, all on the fly, and I know that it probably drove you a little crazy as much as it did for me with all the different choices and possibilities going on. I seriously underestimated the work that was needed in the beginning for every piece of the process and did not always have the best schedule to accommodate to it appropriately. Now, I absolutely know.
So, again, thank you, you are the best, and I feel great about all the work that has been done. You’ve really made a difference.”
“Working with Joy was enjoyable. She pushed me to think hard on some of my essays and was honest and upfront when she didn’t like any part of my it. I appreciated her feedback and the edits she made for my essays.“
“Joy has been great, she’s been a huge help in this whole process and her expertise with writing is very impressive. Have nothing but good things to say!“
