I was accepted to UC Berkeley but I am going to UC Riverside, will I be losing anything if I do this?
UCR is closer to home and seems more laid back, but I know people do not think highly of it. I don't really care what others think, but I know that the reputation of the college has an effect on future job opportunities. So, will choosing UCR over UCB affect my future in any way? Assume that I would be a moderately above average student at UCB and a near-top student at UCR. Also, I have gotten 3's on the non-math/science AP tests. Will UCR accept these scores and give me college credit?
