I was accepted to UCR but I'm not sure if its worth the money. I want to go into Computer Engineering or something similar. Everyone says UCR is the low end of the UC system, someone even said "The "R" in UCR is known to stand for rejects, or retards, for a reason." There is a good community college nearby my house and i'm not sure if I should attend DVC (Diablo Valley College) for 2 years and then transfer to a more well known UC such as Irvine or Davis. I am worried if I attend UCR for 4 years, graduate and receive my degree, that my education simply will be outshadowed by those comming out of more well known UC's as UCB or UCLA.
So the question is, UCR or CC? All your input on the Cons and Pros of the situation are greatly appreciated.
