|You graduated in 2000. UCR has improved drastically in the last 12 years. Stop bashing on a school if your experiences are no longer valid - the culture and rankings have changed entirely in the last decade.|
|Didn't go to UCR and don't know much about the school, but one point I want to clarify. College professors are not medical school rejects. Many of the professors at the UC's went to elite PhD programs, which are much harder to get into than medical school.|
|Lol, so Medical school is hard but PhD's are easy?|
|Your information is way out of date. UCR is a campus of choice and students are excited about coming here. Sorry you had a bad experience. Maybe you should have gone to a community college.|
|I agree with this review. The other UCs are actually renowned (except for UC Merced because it barely opened around 2005), unlike UCR. No one has UCR as their first choice or even their top 3 choices unless maybe their parents went there and the parents told their kids how great UCR is. Some alumni said that UCR is great only because they went there.|
|Didn't go to UCR either (although I was offered admission). But I will say this. In many fields (business, engineering, law, etc.), the reputation of your university matters more than we like to admit. Big companies will likely recruit from big name schools. I've seen this many times.
College professors are not medical school rejects.- TRUE "Many of the professors at the UC's went to elite PhD programs, which are much harder to get into than medical school." - I'M NOT SURE ABOUT THIS PART OF THE STATEMENT.
|The responses would be helpful if this site would attach a year (As of 2015) UC admissions overall is getting harder (competition ?) even for UCR|
