Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
The biomed UCR/UCLA program is a complete scam!! Do not let this happen to you as it to me! This whole deal is about tricking bright student into going into this sorry excuse of a university, and treat you all like crap. The program used to limit only so many people into the biomed major, and only people who were admitted to the major were able to apply to their 7 year med school deal with ucla. Trust me, 24 is not a number you want to gamble your college education over with. They got greedy this time. Now they allow everyone to apply to the 7 year program, and dumped the whole biomed major. This just makes your chance of getting in even less. The education at ucr sucks, professors there are too busy with their research than the quality of your education. I had many experiences in which professors would allow their office hours ran completely by the TAs becuase they just don't care. The so call biomed office is like a fast food drive through. They don't have real offices where people walk in to talk to advisers. They so call "advisers" sit on a chair all day giving you "over the counter advise" and gives you no answers to your questions in which you don't already know. You just go there to pick up your pin number, and they tell you is to have a good day. There is no one to talk to when you need advise becuase no one in ucr care enough to give you any good advise. Non of them are paid enough to do a good job, so why bother. Good luck trying to get them from upper classmates becuase everyone is too competitive to give you any. All people do there is count the number of people left in the program as they go by each day. Just think about it, 24 spots out of thousands. Don't waste your life in this dump. Even if you didn't get into a UC, just go to a cal state. Trust me, if it is too good to be true, it probably is. Med schools do look at which college you go to. UCR is definitely not what you want to put on your application, and no, it is not better than a cal state. I don't know about other majors, but if you want to be doctor, don't go there.
