    Default arrange something/for something

    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there is any difference in meaning between the two:

    He arranged an appointment with a specialist.
    He arranged for an appointment with a specialist.

    Does the addition of the preposition change anything? Is it a matter of personal preference?

    Thank you.
