UCEazy's mission is to simplify the college admissions process for first and second generation immigrant families by providing eazy access to top-quality experts and resources at affordable price.
The UCEazy Co-Founders, Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady (VK), are first-generation immigrants living in Cupertino, CA. After their Silicon Valley careers in information technology (IT), they decided to change the landscape of college admissions counseling. Vinnie and VK believe their college education was imperative to their professional success in the U.S. As parents, however, they found the college application process for their children confusing and overwhelming. From reporting AP/SAT scores to selecting target colleges, Vinnie and VK didn’t know how to help their children get into their dream colleges. Therefore, they created UCEazy to ease the college admissions process for confused parents and ambitious high school students.
The process for admissions to US colleges and universities has become highly competitive and complex. Many students are excluded from rich resources, or even the bare minimum of college admissions advice.
Unfortunately, first and second generation immigrant families do not have access to resources. Why?
- The parents did not attend either high school or college in the US.
- Most public high schools cannot offer personalized help with college admissions because the average public high school student to counselor ratio is 500:1.
As a result, most families face a massive barrier from the college admissions process and students end up missing prime opportunities or selling themselves short.
