Meet Your Coach, Alex Ruiz Lee

Alex has been helping applicants get accepted to their dream schools for over 12 years

Founder, Managing Director and Lead Consultant

MBA Admissions & Career Coach | ex-HR Head

MBA Admissions Consulting | Get Accepted! | INSEAD, LBS, IMD, HEC Paris, HBS, Stanford, Wharton, MIT Sloan, Kellogg, Booth, Columbia, IESE, ESADE Check Out Alex's CV    

Alex started coaching applicants right after graduating from INSEAD in 2011. At that time, it was more like a hobby while focusing on his career at Samsung as Global Strategy Consultant first and as HR Head later.

However, over the years, he found himself more and more interested in the admissions consulting world and realized it was the perfect job to complement his HR career: after all, one of the main focuses of HR is helping people advance in their careers, which is precisely what he does now as a fully dedicated admissions coach.

Hence, in 2017, Alex left Samsung and founded ARLee Consulting.


Alex specializes in MBA, Executive MBA (EMBA), Undergraduate Admissions, Masters in Management (MiM), Masters of Finance (MFin), Masters in Public Policy (MPP) and any other graduate programs.

The best choice I could have made | United States | Female | GMAT: 760

  Accepted to Stanford, Wharton, Kellogg ($$$), Booth ($$$), Columbia, LBS

Alex was an absolute dream to work with. I applied to 7 programs, all top 10, and was accepted to 5 of them, waitlisted at 1 (ultimately accepted), and interviewed but rejected at 1.

I'm so glad that I found him while Google searching for a service that I felt would suit my needs and though I was hesitant at first, I can say that this is one of the best decisions I made.

Go With Alex for Results! | United States | Male | GMAT: 700

  Accepted to HBS, Stanford, Wharton, MIT Sloan ($$$), Booth ($$$), Kellogg ($$$), LBS

Alex was a pleasure to work with and his advice had real results. I applied to 7 of the top 10 programs and was accepted to 6 of the programs and waitlisted for one (ultimately accepted).

I was hesitant at first about using a consultant, but Alex proved me wrong. He was thoughtful and thorough with his advice which led to materials that helped me tell my story in a unique and impactful way.

If you are looking for someone that will provide an excellent service at reasonable cost, Alex is your guy. His experience will take you to the finish line. I couldn't have done it without him!

Simply the best | France | Male | GMAT: 660

  Accepted to INSEAD

I found Alex on the GMAT Club around two weeks after I began to write my documents for the INSEAD application. He contacted me after I posted my profile for an evaluation on the forum. We exchanged a few emails, had a phone call and finally, I decided to hire him for a two school comprehensive end to end package.

Our first task was to reorganise my CV. From this point, I knew I made the right choice of hiring him. I went from a standard work application CV to a perfectly organised and synthetic summary of my life. From this point, I followed all his direction for the next months.

Alex Made My Dreams Come True!! | United Kingdom | Female | GMAT: 680

  Accepted to INSEAD

Alex is an absolute gem of a coach, and I can confidently say that my journey to my dream MBA program wouldn't have been the same without him. From start to finish, Alex's dedication and expertise shone through, making the entire process not just manageable but almost enjoyable.

Despite the inherent stress of applying to top-tier business schools, Alex's unwavering support and round-the-clock availability eased any anxieties I had (especially during results week!). His insightful advice was always just a message or call away, providing me with the guidance I needed at every step.

Got me accepted to my dream school | Vietnam | Male | GMAT: 680

  Accepted to INSEAD and LBS

I was applying to 4 top business schools which 2 of them accepted me and I believe ARLee Consulting played a very important role in helping me getting the admission to such great business schools.

With the comprehensive package, I could consult with ARLee Consulting almost every day. Alex was very helpful in reviewing and suggesting changes for all the materials. Alex helped me to express my true self in the essay so my motivations and ambitions are clear to the admission team.

I believe ARLee Consulting's offerings are the best for the buck that one can find out here. I extremely recommend ARLee Consulting if one needs help with the applications to his/her dream business school

Alex Rocks! | Italy | Male | GMAT: 710

  Accepted to INSEAD

Working with Alex was truly a pleasure. His approach is efficient, timely, and definitely comprehensive. In terms of quality to price, his service is hard to beat if your goal is to get into a top business school: he has an extreme sensitivity in evaluating you and understands how to best enhance you in the eyes of the admission officer.

His support is constant throughout the entire selection process, through email or WhatsApp you can rest assured that he will respond in a very short time.

Also, no less important, this journey with him not only got me admitted to INSEAD but also helped as professional mentorship: I gained greater awareness of my strengths and weaknesses with clarity and synthesis. Highly recommended, really!

Perfect Consultation | India | Female | GMAT: 710

  Accepted to INSEAD ($$)

ARLee Consulting was recommended to me by my college senior who consulted Alex and made it into INSEAD. After having the first conversation with Alex it was the obvious choice to go ahead for INSEAD application with him. His approach was very personalized, friendly and honest. His advise was always logical and correct. In fact, his judgement of the quality of the essays, resume and interview preparation is quite refined and accurate. Even though the whole MBA application process is a stressful phase for an applicant, I never felt so because Alex not only managed every task so perfectly but also motivated me to stay positive and stress free. His complete support till the end of the process and even beyond is highly commendable. I am really thankful to Alex for supporting me endlessly to get into INSEAD and making it a memorable journey!

A real competent consulting service | China | Male | GMAT: 710

  Accepted to INSEAD and HEC Paris

Alex helped me with my application for INSEAD and HEC Paris. I got admitted by both.

He paid a lot of attention to my personal experience to help me get the best out of my past. I'm not a high GMATer nor a stellar applicant with an IB background. But he knows what I should present in my essays.

The application process was exhausting and time-consuming. Alex was with me all the way. His response is super quick. It's easy for us to write un-necessary stories in the essays or derive from the right direction. He can identify those pain-points and give good advice.

At last, Alex is a friend to me now.

Our success journey to INSEAD through ARLee Consulting!
India | Married Couple | GMAT: 720 & 710

  Accepted to INSEAD

I am currently an Oil & gas professional. My spouse and I applied for INSEAD for the MBA J20 and received admissions in R1. We both hired Alex Ruiz Lee to help with our application process and that truly made a difference to our attempts. Coming from the competitive Indian pool of applicants, we were disappointed with our below average GMAT scores (for Indian applicants) and wanted to make up for our probability of success by writing an extra-ordinary application. INSEAD was our top priority school and wanted to hire some consultant who has a thorough knowledge of INSEAD and its application process.

Alex is truly the BEST! | Cameroon | Male | GMAT: 700 | INSEAD Reapplicant

  Accepted to INSEAD ($$) and HEC Paris ($$)

I found Alex on the GMAT Club after being Ding by my target school INSEAD without even an interview. I was so disappointed that I asked for a Ding analysis to 2 admissions consultants. The first one pointed out all the flaws in my application and made me understand that with my profile, it was like a joke to believe that I even stood a chance for a business school like INSEAD or even an MBA at all. To be honest, he discouraged me a little bit about my MBA plans. Then, Alex proposed me to perform another ding analysis. Same thing, he pointed out flaws in my application, but conversely to the other consultant , he took time to understand my profile and my goals and encouraged me to apply for an MBA. He told me that my profile had so much potential and that with a proper application, I would get admitted to other European business schools like LBS, HEC or IESE without even much efforts, with the right guidance of an Admission Consultant. I decided to take the bet and started a new application to HEC Paris, doing all over again my essays, CVs, goals articulation from the beginning with Alex's help.

Alex has helped me get into INSEAD! | Slovakia | Male | GMAT: 640

  Accepted to INSEAD

I owe Alex a big thanks for being accepted at my target school (INSEAD). I cannot express by words how much Alex was helpful during my application process and frankly speaking I could not have made it without his help.

I struggled enormously with my academics, sat multiple times for GMAT and GRE, and fought hard to reach 'average' of my class. I failed. From academics' point of view, I did not make it. I even delayed my application by one year because I was so desperately not able to cross GMAT/GRE threshold that I felt ashamed to apply with my scores.

  Accepted to INSEAD ($$)

With the deadline for INSEAD applications looming and a hectic schedule at work, I knew I needed assistance in making sure I put my best foot forward. I have also made some interesting choices in my career, so telling my story was always going to be challenging. What I had in mind was someone to read over my essays and provide feedback - what works and what doesn't. I sent a few cold emails and Alex was the first to respond. I had read the testimonials online, so thought it was worth a try. Alex's services far exceeded my expectations.

Excellent Service | Greece | Male | GMAT: 700

  Accepted to INSEAD

With the assistance of ARLee Consulting I succeeded in my dream of getting accepted by a top-5 b-school.

Before deciding to refer to ARLee Consulting, I was skeptical about the MBA admissions consultants. Having myself gone successfully through the admission process for my master's at a top EU university, I believed that an external help would only be of limited value. However, as I had been previously rejected by 4 US b-schools, I could not afford another rejection.

It has been as smooth as enriching to work with Alex.

Since our first contact, he has been very responsive and caring, answering every email no later than 24 hours, at any time, providing insightful pointers and corrections, pushing yourself to excel in your essays and taking the best out of your CV.

With him, I applied to INSEAD and NUS being admitted to both BS.

  Accepted to LBS and Rotman ($$$). Waitlisted at UCLA and NYU

Working with Alex was a pleasant experience and brought the most desirable result to me; admission from London Business School.

Before his service, I had not received any invitation from any school but, with his service, I received 4 interview invitations out of 5 applied schools; 2 accepted, 2 waitlisted.

Couldn't Be Happier With Alex! | Malaysian & Hong Kongese | Female | GMAT: 700

  Accepted to INSEAD (Round 4)

When I first decided to apply for an MBA, and for INSEAD specifically, I wasn't particularly looking for an admissions consultant to help me with the process - I'd attempted to work with consultants in the past during my application process for undergrad, and generally just felt that the advice given out was relatively cookie cutter. My impression of consultants was that they wouldn't really try to figure out what made you unique and wanted to stick to a formula to try and get you in.

Alex Is The Best For INSEAD | Thai | Male | GMAT: 700

  Accepted to INSEAD and IESE

I was applying to 2 top business schools, IESE and INSEAD, which all accepted me. ARLee Consulting was a key factor in helping me getting admission to INSEAD.

Alex was a pleasure to work with and his advice had real results. He was a frank person and not shy to tell you that your score wasn't good enough for an elite school; however, he was always very supportive and never gave up on my application with a low GMAT score. Once I took another test and achieved a better score, he always believed I could do it.

Best deal ever - admission offer with full scholarship! | Chinese | Male | GMAT: 730

  Accepted to Ross ($$$$), Fuqua ($$), INSEAD, LBS. Waitlisted at MIT Sloan and Yale SOM

To give you some context, I'm from one of the most competitive pools - Chinese Male in the consulting industry, with an average GMAT score and a rather low GPA. I applied to 6 schools, all of which are my dream schools. With the crucial help from Alex, I successfully received interview invitations from all schools I applied to, and ended up with 4 offers from INSEAD, LBS, Fuqua($$), and Ross($$$$), and 2 waitlists (withdrawed later) from another 2 top US schools.

Alex is the expert of experts! Highly reccomend | United States | Male | GMAT: 700

  Accepted to INSEAD

I approached Alex with an unconventional background in the fashion industry, coupled with the fact that I was 35 years old. Crafting a cohesive narrative for my MBA application and explaining why I was pursuing it at this stage posed a significant challenge. I met with several other consultants, all of whom expressed doubts about my chances at INSEAD. They offered standard feedback and suggested alternative schools as safer options. However, my meeting with Alex was different.

Best decision I made | Indonesia | Male | GMAT Focus: 655

  Accepted to LBS GMiM

Working with Alex was one of the best decisions I've made in my application process. Alex helped me gained an admit to the LBS GMiM programme, the only programme I applied for. I decided to seek the help of a consultant because I was unfamiliar with the business school admissions process and I have non-traditional career goals and background, so I was looking for someone who can guide me in the right direction, help me structure my story, and help me understand what the school is looking for. I had a great first impression of Alex, because firstly, he was very quick to respond to my initial enquiry email, and secondly, during our initial call, he took the time to really understand my background and to understand what I was personally looking for.
