UC Campuses: Risky to apply to several?

<p>Is it true that if I apply to the easier UC's like Riverside and Merced, I will automatically only be accepted to one of those and rejected from the more competitive ones (UCLA, etc.)? Thanks.</p>

<p>Not necessarily automatically; it depends on gpa, sat, ec, etc..A lot of people apply to all types of UC's, sometimes even all of them, so you should be ok applying to several</p>
