The founders of UCEazy, Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady (VK), are both first-generation immigrants. Each had a successful Silicon Valley career in technology, but they both came to the harsh realization that they were not prepared to help their own children get into the college of their dreams. They found the U.S. college application process confusing and overwhelming. They narrowed this problem down to one very specific issue:
Students from first and second generation immigrant families do not have access to resources and experience from their parents or high school counselors.
First generation immigrant parents are often unable to help their own children because they did not attend either high school or college in the US. Meanwhile, the average student to counselor ratio in public high school is 500:1, so it is impossible for counselors to meet the individual needs of every student.
UCEazy solves this problem by providing their experience in the form of a college counseling service based on:
- High Quality Counselors - All of our counselors have at least a Master’s Degree and average 15 years experience in college admissions.
- Lower Price Services - When compared to chains as well as independent counselors, our prices are 30-70% lower.
- Flexibility - You have an option to choose your UCEazy college counselor based on your specific needs, preferences, and budget. Also, you can choose between a package and block of hours. Lastly, you can choose between one time payment and monthly payment plans.
- Protection - Life happens and we always make sure the relationship between you and your expert counselor is the very best it can be.
Vinnie and VK created UCEazy to ease the college admissions process for confused parents and ambitious students from 8th grade through 12th grade. From guidance with extracurricular strategy to selecting target colleges that best fit the skills of each student, and assisting with college application essays, UCEazy exists to help children of first and second generation immigrant families get into their dream colleges.
