Our Mission:

UCEazy's mission is to simplify the college admissions process for students whose parents were born outside the U.S. We provide easy access to top-quality admissions experts and resources, while laying the foundation for the multi-dimensional student all the way through college admissions.

Our Story:

UCEazy Co-Founders Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady (VK) are first-generation immigrants living in Cupertino, CA. After successful careers in Silicon Valley, they wanted to change the landscape of college admissions guidance for students whose parents were born outside the U.S.
As parents, Vinnie and VK found the college admission process for their own children to be confusing and overwhelming. From preparing a college list to writing college application essays, they struggled to help their children get into the college of their dreams.

Based on these experiences, the framework of UCEazy was born. At the beginning, UCEazy’s sole focus was to help in navigating the college admissions process. One-on-one counseling was done via video conference. Also, educational seminars and webinars were offered.
In 2018, UCEazy rolled out the Multi-Dimensional Student Program for students in grades 8-10. The goal of this program is to help students differentiate themselves in colleges admissions by becoming multi-dimensional instead of just focusing on academics.
