College Admissions Made Eazy
★★★★★–Sravana S (Parent)
"UCEazy has been a tremendous support in our College Planning process for our daughter (starting college in Fall 2020) removing anxiety from parents. Deanna Goldberg, our UCEazy counselor, has been extremely understanding, diligent and resourceful by providing expert advice and step by step guidance throughout the process since mid-Junior year – starting with the summer extracurricular activities, identifying a list of colleges that suits the student’s portfolio, reviewing the essays and reminding on application deadlines. As we contemplate deciding on picking a college, Deanna is still supportive in responding to our college-specific questions. We highly recommend her and UCEazy."
"UCEazy was a great way for me to understand the different aspects of College Application. My counselor (Kellee) was very helpful and stepped me through the entire process. She was also readily available for communication and responded promptly and completely. Although I was not told "Do This, Do That", I felt that UCEazy provided me with enough knowledge and prepared me well to make my own decisions regarding my College Path."
"UCEazy has been beyond helpful during the college admission process. My counselor, Melissa Royal, helped me through out the process and gave me advice on which colleges to pick, how to stand out, and help with college essay's. She gave me the proper insight and feedback I needed to make my college essay's perfect. This made by admission process much easier and helped me reduce a lot of my stress."
★★★★★–Duleep Pillai (Parent)
"UCEAZY was very helpful in our son's college application process and Spenser Barr was there to guide him every step of the way. He and other members of the team stepped in whenever we had any questions. Really appreciate their help."
★★★★★–Sunni Aggarwal (Parent)
"I highly recommend UCEazy for counseling services.
They made the college admission process very stress free for us. Their Counselors are very knowledgeable of all schools all over US and they provide excellent guidance. Counselors maintained very good communication throughout the application time and replied very promptly to our emails.
They work with each family individually and pay attention to all factors to make sure the students can achieve their goal of getting into good universities."
"UCEazy made my college application process stress-free and efficient. They gave me many resources to make sure I submit my application with the best version of my essays weeks before the due date. Special thanks to Deanna for always being available to revise my essays and making this application process a breeze!"
"UCEazy was very helpful throughout my admissions process. The college admissions timeline was very hectic, and they helped me stay on track. The counselor assigned to me, Kellee Carter, seemed to be very knowledgeable about the entire admissions system, and helped me come up with numerous ideas for essays and also helped me understand what sort of college was right for me."
"UCEazy was beyond helpful in my college admissions process. My counselor, Julia Tushaus helped me with my essays and allowed me to express myself in a more appealing way to colleges without straying from myself. I was stressed in the beginning, but along the way with the help of my counselor, the process was much easier and Ms. Tushaus is a wonderful person to work with. I'm glad to have chosen UCEazy because of their professionalism and I felt that I received quality tips and guidance."
★★★★★–Anu Anantharaman (Parent)
"Our UCEazy counselor, Andrew Jezierski, played a really important role in our son's college admissions. He quickly established rapport, which was really helpful in making the process near stress-free. Andrew was very prompt in setting up video meetings and editing essays, whenever needed. The results pretty much tell the whole story - admission to all UCs (including UCLA and Berkeley, which were Reach Schools) and USC. Many thanks to Andrew and UCEazy!"
"UCEazy was such a formative program to help me through the college admission process!My counselor, David Campos has helped me since 10th grade. From helping me choose what classes to take to reading and editing my college essays, I truly felt very supported in what is such a confusing process for both students and parents alike. I think my favorite thing about UCEazy is that they don't simply give you the answer, but motivate and challenge you to think outside the box to really show you how much potential you have. Overall, I highly recommend UCEazy and encourage families to start young to get the most out of it!"
★★★★★–Raghunath Bansal (Parent)
"Karen Rowe has been in constant communication, helping our son with picking electives, planning,SATs, essay editing, picking colleges to apply to. 5 stars for sure.
Hi Ms Rowe,
We want to thank you for your guidance, your clear and focused communication with Niket as well as parents during this somewhat confusing journey.Your help made a big difference in helping Niket get to his dream school.
Thanks once again!"
"I had Jen Brookover as my counselor and she was amazing with helping me plan, set deadlines, edit my essays, and weigh my options. I’m very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend her as a counselor!"
"It has been an absolute honor to work with Melissa Royal through my college application journey!! The college essay writing tips that she had provided me were really good, as they directly tackled the inherent flaws that were prevalent in my writing ability. I will always be very thankful to Mrs. Royal for helping me realize the importance of thinking critically about where I stand as a well-rounded individual and what I envision myself to become in the future. She is also a VERY KIND person, so don't hesitate to reach out to her and ask any burning questions you might have! She is easily reachable by Gmail or text. Looking back, if Melissa Royal was not my UCEazy counselor, I don't think me and my family would have been able to dream about my post-high school future with as much optimism as we are doing now."
"UCEazy was so helpful throughout my college admissions process, and I highly recommend it! The counselor assigned to me, Melissa Royal, made the applying experience extremely easy to understand and worked with me every step of the way. Any question or concern I had, whether about my applications or essays, was quickly answered, and it definitely reduced my stress! Thank you so much UCEazy!"
"UCEazy made my college application process really smooth and simple. The counselor they assigned me helped improve my essays and give the insight I needed from a college admissions officer to take my essays to the next level. Thank you UCEazy!"
★★★★★–Yingfang Chen (Parent)
"We selected UCEazy based on my colleague’s referral. We are very grateful to have Karen as my daughter’s counselor. She guided my daughter through whole process from summer camp application, planning, college selection and essay editing. As busy working parents, we seldom involved and let her lead this process. She is always there whenever my daughter needs to talk to her and really cares the well-being of her students.
Thank you Karen. You are the best."
★★★★★–Lokesh Tatke (Parent)
"We went with UCEazy as we were a little overwhelmed with the process of admissions. Being first generation immigrants, it was a little challenging for us to navigate all the processes and timelines.
Deanna Goldberg was assigned to help us navigate through the process. We had a wonderful experience working with her. She fully understood our position and was extremely patient with us throughout the process. She helped us plan, select, know our choices in great detail. Recognizing our position she took the lead in the process and helped us navigate the process with extreme ease. At one point, I just left everything to her and my daughter to figure out. She was very prompt with her responses and helped us build a strategy which suited our unique position.
We thank Deanna and UCEazy for making our first college admissions process stress-free."
★★★★★–Vilas Patil (Parent)
"Our experience with UCEazy was great. The service was vital in making sure we did not miss anything during the strenuous application process. Our counselor, Jose Ireta, was amazingly helpful and amicable throughout the process, and our decision to buy this service will not be regretted."
"I worked with UCEazy to apply to colleges last year and although college applications were so stressful and confusing, having Karen to help me gave me confidence in my application. It was much easier to navigate and when there are so many different people giving you their opinions on college applications, I was so grateful to have a counselor to give me constructive advice"
★★★★★–Moreshwar Purandare (Parent)
"I want to thank you for all your help with Atharva's college application. This was really a last moment request and you helped us during Thanksgiving break. Last night Atharva was able to get his application in and without your support this would not have been possible"
★★★★★–Anand B. (parent)
My daughter is a senior at Cupertino, CA and we had engaged UCEazy for getting help on the college list and essay review. All our interactions with Vinnie Gupta, co-founder has been great and I would highly recommend their services to anybody.
Few things that have really stood out while working with Vinnie and his team are:
1. Team Ethics - We were impressed by the team's integrity and the flexibility to adjust with our changing needs during this journey
2. Based on our research, they provided highly experienced counsellors at a very reasonable price
3. Our counselor was very flexible in understanding our requirements and providing the right guidance and motivation to our daughter
4. Video collaboration with the counselor was in fact an asset as we could work with experienced counselors in the comfort of our home. All the video meets were professionally done and we never missed the need of in-person meetings
I would especially like to call out Vinnie for his friendly nature and his willingness to work with us on any requests during our engagement with UCEazy.
"Worked with Karen Rowe and she was such an amazing mentor! Off that bat, she knew how to help me in forming a college list that was perfect for me. She helped me select which colleges were exceptional in my major of psychology/neuroscience, fit with my interests, and were most importantly located in California. She helped me through every milestone of the college process. From the beginning steps of essay brainstorming to the final stages of hearing back from colleges, she was there every step of the way. She's super proactive and whenever I'd have a question I'd just send her an email and she'd reply right away with the best advice! She guided me into getting into my dream school (UCSB) along with other schools such as UC Irvine, UC Davis, Cal Poly SLO, etc. I'm so forever grateful for not only Ms. Karen but the entire UCEazy company for making my college application process less stressful and unforgettable!"
★★★★★–Sundaram S. (parent)
"We used the services of UCEazy to go through the college admission process of one of our child. For someone, who started very late in the process and knew little about it,UCEazy was god send. It was a very good experience working with both Vinnie and Vaitheesh. They are always available to help and very responsive.
Above all, they are nice human beings, their philanthropy effort with this being a testament to it.We also had a very good experience working with Nicole Jackson.
Essentially, we just didn't take a back seat, but completely backed off and let the counselor-student relationship work through it's process and reach it's culmination..
"I would highly recommend UCEazy."
★★★★★–Piyush M. (Senior)
"Karen was super helpful throughout the entire process!! I started off very nervous about the applying to college and had a lot of questions but she was able to answer them and keep me on track and on schedule with my application. I enjoyed working with Karen and would recommend her to anyone who needs a helping hand in the application process!"
★★★★★–Ash B. (Parent)
"My daughter is a Junior at MSJHS in Fremont. We reached out to UCEazy to get help with research and building the college list as well as to seek guidance for deciding on the Major. We worked with Katy, who my daughter found to be very knowledgeable and friendly. She was able to answer all her questions and provide guidance and very helpful actionable tips. Online meeting was very convenient and worked out well for my daughter's schedule. The rates are definitely very, very reasonable for the quality of the service. We will be seeking more help from UCEazy during the essay-writing period as well. Definitely, recommend UCEazy to anyone looking for affordable and high-quality college counselors. Keep up the good job, UCEazy!"
★★★★★–Priya Ram. (Senior)
"Hi Ms. Rowe, I have committed to UC Davis and I just wanted to give you a small token of gratitude for all the help you provided me during application season. Your feedback was extremely thoughtful and my application was enhanced by your edits. Again, thank you so much for everything and I hope you are able to enjoy this gift card!"
★★★★★–Rashmi P. (Parent of a senior)
"We are very happy about the interaction and working experience with Esperanza. She gave good feedback on Amogh's personal insight questions and worked with us multiple iteration till it became perfect. She answered all our queries and I am glad that I took UCEazy help for application process. It was less stressful."
★★★★★–Vijay R. (Parent)
"Very unique offering which fits my key requirements:
- pricing meeting my budget. Compared with other on premises college consulting groups, UCEazy is 1/4th the cost.
- video based meetings. Having recently moved from North Carolina and with time wasted on commuting, it makes ample sense for student and teacher doing consulting on video
- high quality counselors anywhere in US brought to your doorstep. As the meetings are video based, my son's student counselor is from Irvine and we are very happy with the progress so far.
- Flexibility in setting the meetings. With my son's many commitments on weekdays, having a slot on a weekend evening works out pretty good. Again on video based helps a lot in finding a mutual agreeable time slot.
My son is still a freshman in Cupertino high. I was heartened to see him start narrowing down his future career path to an existing area and trying to build foundation around it. His counselor, Anna provided links for all summer programs and internships. Even having my son start proactively planning all these in his freshman year wouldn't have happened without Anna."
★★★★★–Sukhreet Deol (Senior)
"Spencer was very helpful. He helped with the entire college application process from answering my questions to fixing all my essays to the smallest mistake. I did not know much about the college application process and he helped me with all the steps and answered my questions in complete details. We took small steps to completing the applications and that made the entire application process a bit less stressful. I am truly appreciative of all his help. He was a great teacher, and I learned a lot from this process. With all that I learned, I will be able to help my younger siblings during their application process. Spencer was really helpful throughout this entire process and with that a wonderful teacher."
★★★★★–Ramesh Visvanathan. (Parent)
"Navigating thru the maze of U.S college admission process for a student living abroad is mind boggling to say the least. The support and guidance we received from UCEazy counselor (Pam Ohriner) made a huge difference in every step of the way including college shortlist, narrowing it down, essay reviews, college selection and fin-aid appeal. Happy to say that Arun got in to the college he wanted with the desired major. Sincere Thanks and appreciation to UCEazy. Couldn’t have done it without you !!!"
★★★★★–Karuna K. (Parent)
“We have utilized UCEazy services for our son's college applications. It has been a great experience so far. During introduction Vinnie walked us through enriching information about how UCEazy can fill critical knowledge gaps and prepare students for college. Upon meeting the councilor our any remaining doubt was cleared. She meets weekly with our son establishing the goals for the week with the clear charter for the year in mind. With constant guidance my son understands the goals and stays motivated to complete them. Video meeting has been great without any trouble. I find charges very reasonable as compared to other services around.
Overall I recommend them, and would use them in future for my other one.”
★★★★★–Sub R. (Parent)
“Our family found this college counseling outfit after researching several firms in the SF bay area. My daughter is a sophomore at IrvingtonHigh Fremont.
Given the student to counselor ratio at public schools ( 700:4) we felt the need for private counseling, but the costs were prohibitive. Most private counseling firms charged in the tens of thousands of dollars per year.
Enter UCEazy. They have a very reasonable price-point and option to tryout the counseling without locking you on to super long contract periods. After a short-trial period, we liked the counsellor and signed on for a 3-year plan.
★★★★★–Reena Gupta Bansal. (Parent)
"I highly recommend UCEazy consulting. UCEazy has a vast selection of experienced and knowledgeable consultants. My daughter got admission in the college of her choice and wanted to request for financial aid to support her education. We sought advice by Dr. Monica Randall, a college Admissions/financial aid counselor affiliated with UCEazy, regarding the financial aid process and were offered the option to consult with her via Video–call. Dr. Randall is highly knowledgeable about the college financial aid process. She gave insightful advice regarding the process of administering aid from a college’s perspective and advised on what to address in order to maximize my daughter’s chances of getting financial aid. After the meeting, she helped my daughter edit a rough draft of the request and gave quality feedback. Video-call based interaction with Dr. Randall was very convenient and it was pleasant to collaborate with her. I highly recommend her service.
UCEazy pricing is reasonable especially for the services it provides when it comes to selecting California colleges and majors and relatively low compared to other college consulting companies."
★★★★★–Vikas M. (Parent)
“I came to know of UCEazy from one of my friends whose son did very well get into a great college with help of UCEazy.
I met with the founders few times regarding my son using them as well and found them very knowledgeable about the problem and solution regarding college admission process. They were very helpful through out the process and there was no pressure from them to take the service. They also listened to our needs and tried to match us with the right counselor.
Counselor Experience: Nicole is very knowledgeable and very patient with students. She knows what she is talking about and is very prompt in responding to our queries throughout the process.
Overall, they have helped in bringing clarity to the whole process and has taken out anxiety for parents as well as students. A top notch team of professionals and i will highly recommend them.”
★★★★★–Wenshan S. (Parent)
“UCEazy - Pam is one of most efficient, helpful, and warm of her field. She has really been a lot of help to me and my daughter as we urgently needed to write a waitlist appeal letter; she helped us accomplish the letter within a week, as we had a tight schedule. Pam was always accommodating and strengthened my daughter's arguments in the letter. Pam takes pride of her job and enjoy what she is doing. It was a pleasant experience to work with her. Thanks UCEazy to connect me with her.”
★★★★★–Rob W. (Parent)
"My wife sent me a pic of upcoming free webinars for assisting your student with UC,CSU and other college admissions. The first webinar we attended was on Saturday, it was about scholarships and grants.This is just what we needed and was looking for! The info was great, timely and well delivered. The presenters of where very knowledgeable of the material and had Phd's and or the work experience which complements the company. They were quick to answer the few questions that were asked. The session was so informative that there were few questions left to ask.
We have attended the second webinar today, on entrance essays. It was well put together again, timely, starting right on time just like the previous one. The info was great, well thought out, and again all questions answered fully. I enjoyed UC Eazy's policy on giving back to the community. Vinnie G, the owner was on also today and he shared his heart with us about giving back to the bay area, the under privileged, and his love for helping young adults in gain admission to one of the schools of their choice.
Vinnie called me and we had a good discussion. He answered my questions and if we need this service in the future Vinnie will be the first I call."
★★★★★–Sheela S. (Parent)
“I strongly agree with all the reviews on UCEazy here so far. If your child is going to a public high school and if you are looking for 1:1 college counseling for your child, definitely you need to hire a private college counselor given the counselor to student ratio in public schools. For us, having no prior experience or no contacts in the counseling business we ourselves needed guidance to find and pick the right counselor. That is when our family friend and the co-founder of UCEazy, Vinnie Gupta reached out to us and walked us through their services and platform. We learned that they provide access to top-quality, fully vetted experts and tools tailored towards guiding first gen. immigrant parents to help guide their children through the high school planning, resume building and college application process through the high school years. They guaranteed us the best services from the counselors and if for some reason the selected counselor doesn't work out they guaranteed to replace at no additional cost. Right away we signed up for their services, they helped us connect with the right counselor and it's been going well so far! Another advantage is that you don't need to schedule in-person sessions with these counselors as they all are set up do the counseling remotely through video conferencing. It works out very well for us as we don't need to do the traffic planning or driving the kids around. I would highly recommend UCEazy to make your life easier in giving a great life to your child! UCEazy makes it easy!”
★★★★★–Latha S. (Parent)
“We learned about UCEazy through our friend and signed up with them for an initial consultation. Our kid is applying for college admission this year. UCEazy assigned the Counsellor Dr. Nicole Jackson to us.
Dr. Nicole Jackson is very knowledgeable. She listened to our requirements and suggested various options. She was very helpful; she answered all our questions. Dr. Jackson has more than 25 years of experience in this field as a counsellor. We are very satisfied with the initial consultation and so we decided to use their service for our kid college application process.
We are very satisfied with our one hour consultation and we are hoping for the same for the rest of this college application process. I am already recommending UCEazy to my friends.”
★★★★★–Kevin D. (Parent)
“UCEazy has a vast array of resources available to its customers. They have a number of highly qualified counselors that know the application process and have worked on college admissions boards. The counselors know exactly what admissions officers look for in an application.
Along with their experienced staff, UCEazy provided me with a lot if information through its webinars. With college applications, there is just so much to do that it can be very daunting to start somewhere. The webinars gave me a good starting point with my applications.”
★★★★★–Manoj R. (Parent)
“Clearing a lot of fog around college admissions, Vinnie and the counselors provided really life changing advice for our daughter. The flexibility offered by UCEazy in terms of different packages and targeted counseling provides unique value proposition for every student family.
★★★★★–Rachel H. (Parent)
“Anna Cavanaugh is an exceptional counselor. She went above and beyond for both of my daughters in this role at their high school, taking the time to truly understand their strengths and their interests. This included helping them to choose classes, assisting withsecuring internships, and using her knowledge and experience to guide them in choosing and applying to colleges.”
★★★★★– Cindy R. (Parent)
“Ms. Cavanaugh is a brilliant counselor. She is very kind and we always knew that she
was genuinely interested in making sure our daughter achieved her goal of attending the right university for her! We began working with Ms. Cavanaugh when our daughter was a junior in high school and her help was invaluable in navigating the college admission process especially for a student athlete. Our daughter had official visits to Harvard, Stanford, UCLA and USC. Harvard required our daughter to submit her entire application in mid-august before her visit in early September. The Common Application had changed that year and there were some technical glitches. Ms. Cavanaugh assisted us in getting through the glitches in the system, by diligently working on our behalf to get in contact with the Common Application administrators. Our daughter successfully submitted her application prior to arrival and was offered admission to Harvard during her visit. Our daughter stated that the other student athletes on her visit had difficulty completing the Common Application and attended the visit without submission. Harvard allowed them to attend, but asked our daughter how she was able to submit her application. My daughter shared that she had a very dedicated and caring college counselor that found a way to work through the glitches. Harvard was impressed!”
★★★★★-Dileep Panjwani (Parent)
“We used a few sessions with UCEazy’s counselor to help our child review and fine-tune college application essays. She helped my child stay focused in answering the open ended prompts and reduce essay length without losing the essence and tone. The video sessions worked well and scheduling was flexible. I found their rates quite reasonable compared to other local college counseling services in my neighborhood."”
★★★★★–Harshaan K. (Student)
"The entire application process can be very confusing, but with UCEazy’s webinars and online tools helped me decode it and make informed decisions. The webinars guided me through the process by giving me the information I needed and helped me track down the resources I would need to do the best I could as I applied for college."
★★★★★–Chirag N. (Student)
“While working through college applications, I was adding in my information but I did not know what information was more important and better to include. UCEazy’s webinars gave me insight into what college admissions officers look for in an applicant and a potential student. I was able to structure my extra curricular activities appropriately and get good advice on how to write my application essays.”
★★★★★–Sumana K. (Student)
“UCEazy’s webinars helped me find a starting point for my applications and guide me through making decisions throughout the application process. They gave me information and tips on building a successful application. UCEazy’s online tools also helped me organize the information I needed in the applications. This allowed me to keep all the information I would need for any application in one place where I could reference it quickly as necessary.”
★★★★★–Sachi B. (Student)
“I highly recommend UCEazy consulting. UCEazy has a vast selection of experienced and knowledgeable consultants. I got admission in the college of my choice and wanted to request for financial aid to support my education. I sought advice by Dr. Monica Randall, a college Admissions/financial aid counselor affiliated with UCEazy, regarding the financial aid process and was offered the option to consult with her via Video-call.
Dr. Randall is highly knowledgeable about the college financial aid process. She gave insightful advice regarding the process of administering aid from a college's perspective and advised on what to address in order to maximize my chances of getting financial aid. After the meeting, she helped me edit a rough draft of the request and gave quality feedback. Video-call based interaction with Dr. Randall was very convenient and it was pleasant to collaborate with her. I highly recommend her service. UCEazy pricing is reasonable especially for the services it provides when it comes to selecting California colleges and majors and relatively low compared to other college consulting companies.”
"UCEazy app was really easy to navigate through, with videos always there to help.
* Highly customizable and amazingly easy to provide basic scholastic information and preferences to assess which colleges are in reach, safe, and target zones!
* Quick results that are easy to understand; fun exploring options; awesome that planning calendar is in place too!
* Very user-friendly and a really cool way to strategize for upcoming UC/CSU students!
Great that I got to it just in time!"
★★★★★–Agrima S. (Student)
“UCEazy is an extremely helpful program and resource for everyone, not only those that immediately sign up for their services. It is obvious that their effort is genuine; I attended one seminar, and by the next one, they remembered my name and previous questions, something that made me realize that they truly do care about each and every student going through this process. I have become a lot more knowledgeable through the free seminars, and am now confidently signing up with the program to gain even more knowledge!”

★★★★★–Sandeep K (Student)
“The college application process is one that has continued to confuse high school students. They often feel lost and do not know where to begin. Googling can help but there are countless different responses. UCEazy was a solution that put me on the right track to finishing my applications. Its webinars gave me the information I needed to make the right choices while the online tools helped me organize my information. UCEazy is a great tool for anyone going through application process”
★★★★★–Alexander K (Student)
“It is hard to stay organized during the application process trying to handle all if the different applications at the same time. UCEazy's online tools helped me keep everything in order. I had all my information in one place easy to access. I was able to track my applications individually. Organizing during the application process can be hard but UCEazy simplified it drastically.”
★★★★★–Nikhil K. (Student)

UCEazy's webinars are very informative and gave me the insight I needed to make educated decisions. It also helped me find the resources I needed to help me through the process.
I would recommend UCEazy to anyone going through the application process as it can help keep students organized and on schedule while providing them with the resources to succeed!”
