Your GPA seems pretty weak for UCR as well. Getting into UCR became competitive because it is more selective than previous years. It is no longer a referral campus.
Right now, it seems like the only UC school you could get into is UC Merced.
If you really want to get into UCR, make noteworthy of yourself RIGHT NOW. Study for standardized tests and try to get a SAT score over 2000 or an ACT score over 30, or do as much extracurricular activities as you can. That way, it can cover up your GPA and you can be competitive among the applicants.
Oh, also keep in mind that personal statement counts a lot too.
