Universities and colleges seek independent thinkers in today's challenging environment
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. colleges and universities are no longer focusing primarily on grade point averages (GPA) and SAT/ACT scores when it comes to college admissions. Because of this shift, parents and students need to understand that college admissions departments are placing an emphasis on admitting multi-dimensional students. UCEazy has developed a program to help 8th to 10th grade students become multi-dimensional.
UCEazy specializes in guiding students whose parents were born outside the U.S. Co-founders Vinnie Gupta and Vaitheesh Kolady, both born outside the U.S., started UCEazy to level the playing field for these students. The company helps these families understand the nuances of the American education system to assist students in securing admission into top tier universities.
The company also works with 11th and 12th grade students by providing one-on-one college admissions counseling via videoconference and high touch educational seminars on critical college admission topics for parents and students.
"A multi-dimensional student achieves in academic, social, emotional areas, communicates well and has the ability to think independently," said Gupta. "It's recommended that students, as early as the eighth grade, must begin to lay the foundation to becoming a multi-dimensional student."
UCEazy's Multi-Dimensional Student Program works with students and parents in four core areas: academic, emotional, extra-curricular activities and creative writing. This is achieved by offering:
- One-on-one guidance for key decisions such as coursework selection, extracurricular activities, summer planning, stress assessment, testing strategy and understanding best career options.
- One-on-one coaching for creative writing to improve student's ability to write in their own unique voice.
- Educational webinars for parents and students on topics related to the high school journey and study skills, as well as the discovery of passions, career options, emotional well-being, soft skills, public versus private high school decision and more.
- Parent Resource Group, a platform where parents seek ideas and solutions from other parents, in order to help their children to be successful in high school and become more competitive in the college admissions process.
As UCEazy continues to grow nationwide, the company is hiring community ambassadors in targeted areas across the nation.
