Do not go here. UCR is often called UC Rejects because most people don't come here out of choice. They are rejected by all other UCs and think at least UCR is better than a Cal State. Wrong! Riverside community college is better than UCR. This school is a dumb. Academics- the professors aren't there to motivate your or themselves. They are most pre-meds you couldn't get into med school, failed at everything else, and figured hey I'll just get a PhD and be a professor to ruin others. They don't care about you or your education. Of course there are a few, but they often leave for better opportunities. You'll graduate in 4 years by divine intervention. Most students in the sciences are here for 5 plus years, most likely 7 or so. Those who ever do get into med school get into Ross or one of those major back ups. Do you really want to do that? Advising is a joke. They don't care and will never care. Students to them are just money making machines, nothing more. If you are willing to go in debt for education, go to a better college. If you can't get into any UCs, try Cal States. Students have a better chance in life graduating from anywhere else that's not UCR. Graduate school is just as bad. Students graduating in 10 years (ideally it should take 5 years) with PhDs can't find jobs because of the UCR name. Students with PhDs get two-three part time jobs at low paying jobs. The area is unsafe. It is riddled with robbery, rapes, assaults, etc. No one lives in the Inland Empire by choice, no one goes to UCR by choice. Either they didn't get anywhere or didn't know any better. Take the negative reviews seriously. This school, especially for sciences, isn't worth it. The WORST part of all of this is their humanities is actually good and ranked well. Unfortunately the school thinks its UCLA or USC and wants to compete in the sciences, which is worthless. Word of major ADVICE: If you can't get in anywhere else, go to a community college. Work hard, volunteer, get experience, get a job, anything to build your resume/cv. Transfer to anywhere except UCR and chances are you'll do great in your life in less time than any of the professors at the university combined. I had to work VERY HARD to get this school's name off my records. I got multiple degrees from well-ranked universities after this school so UCR no longer holds me back. And no, I didn't get into any good school based on being at UCR. This school is ranked low and will get you no where. I took classes, paying for them out of my pocket, as a non-degree student to show the other schools I'm worth it. Then only did I get accepted, despite having perfect grades at UCR. DO NOT GO HERE!!!
