" When my daughter started her college search, she had some anxiety because there were so many school choices and she wasn't really sure where to begin or how to gather and organize all the needed information. Ann immediately put her at ease and worked with her to narrow down the list of schools based on her assessment of what was the best fit for my daughter. I felt like Ann knew exactly where she would thrive and my daughter ended up choosing a school that we would not have even heard of had we not worked with Ann! In just a few sessions, the college search became a fun experience for my daughter instead of a stressful one because Ann knew the right questions to ask, and how to organize all the data so my daughter could easily keep track of all the information about the schools without it being confusing or a burden to her. Not to mention, Ann was there to guide her through the entire application process. I cannot say enough good things about our experience, and I would highly recommend Ann to everyone who is looking for the right place to continue their education.
"Thank you so much for helping me during the college application process, because without your help I wouldn't be attending my dream school."
"Thank you so much for everything you have done for me! Your coaching changed my life forever! Thank you for your constant support!

"Mrs. Boldt is incredible. I feel so lucky to have met her and to have had her insight and guidance throughout the college admissions process. It is extremely rare to come across someone like her, who embodies the best possible combination of professional expertise and personal care. She is extremely knowledgeable about colleges and the admissions process, and she is extremely diligent in her work to help students figure out the path that works best for them as well as the steps to follow in order to get there. She invests in her students like no other. You are not just a client; you are someone she is rooting for, someone she truly believes in. She genuinely cares about her students and wants to see them succeed, and her work reflects this. She is also one of the kindest and loveliest people I have ever met. I consider her my “college counselor mom.” I would not have been able to get to where I am now without her help, support, and encouragement. She is one of the few people who have really made an impact on me. Even though eight years have passed since my first meeting with Mrs. Boldt, she continues to be a source of inspiration and a role model. There is no person I would more highly recommend."
"With the plethora of choices available, choosing the right college is a tougher decision than ever before. I'm so thankful I had Mrs. Boldt to help me find my perfect college fit! She helped me discover what I valued most in a school that matched my priorities. Her advice led me to choose a college where I'm happy, have access to wonderful opportunities, and have truly found my tribe of people!
"I’m the older child in my family so my parents were unsure about the type of assistance I would need for my college applications. Mrs. Boldt was extremely helpful and thorough when it came to feedback and brainstorming ideas for different essay questions. She has an exceptional view of and is very knowledgeable of what these colleges and universities are looking for when they read students' essays. She was able to give me great insight on what to research and include in an essay response in order to stand out from others. In addition, Mrs. Boldt gave important feedback while still allowing my voice and experiences to shine through my writing. On top of all this, as a busy student, she made it so easy to work with her virtually. She was extremely timely and understanding when it came to responding to my questions. My experience with working with Mrs. Boldt was extremely helpful and I would definitely use her again!"
"Before receiving advising from Ann Boldt, I had no idea where I wanted to go to college or what I wanted to major in. She was able to provide me with tons of information and assistance on schools/majors that I might be interested in, how to make my college essays stand out, and how to develop a good relationship with admission officers. She was always kind, encouraging, and informative. With her help, I was able to get into my dream school and discover a major that I am passionate about."
"The college decision process can be a stressful and at times overwhelming process. Ann Boldt’s services not only relieved a lot of this anxiety but also provided a clear pathway up until I made my final decision. To this day I am still grateful for the direction I was provided during Ann Boldt's counseling because I know I engaged in a thorough and meaningful way to choose my home for the last four years. Utilizing these services will not just provide you with the technical and soft-skills that you need to apply to four-year institutions but it will give you the clarity you need to feel comfortable in your decisions along the way, which I believe is the most valuable service anyone can offer before you arrive at college."
“If you are feeling overwhelmed by the college admissions process Mrs. Boldt is the person to go to. Not only will she help guide you along the confusing mess of deadlines and sat/act scores, but she will always be someone on your side rooting for you and your future. Mrs. Boldt does an amazing job of sitting down and listening to what you want from your college experience and then matching you with colleges that fit your description. For me this was a helpful, unbiased way, of figuring out which colleges would actually be a good fit. She also does an amazing job of helping you set deadlines for admissions essays and will help bring your essay to life. Not to mention Mrs. Boldt is one of the most kind-hearted people who so clearly wants what is best for you. Overall, I cannot say enough good things about Mrs. Boldt and her company!”
"I have always been so nervous about talking about college because I didn't think there were any options for me, nor did I think I was good enough for any music program. The thought of my future prior to talking to Mrs. Boldt made me feel sick with anxiety because I didn't believe I even had one in the first place. I have hope now, and I believe now. Because of Mrs. Boldt. I will never be able to thank her enough. She is incredible."
