Where should I go next fall? / Re: Housing around UCLA

they give you priority for weyburn the earlier you apply?  I've seen the UCLA Housing website and weyburn looks awesome (but i think you pay an extra 100 or 200-something a month if you want a parking space) but it seems like it would be hard to get a spot.  I was actually considering submitting my Statement of Intent to Register (even though I'm not sure if I'm going to UCLA), just so I could apply for housing.  I figured you don't have to pay a deposit anyway!

So culver city is nice/quiet/safe?  Why only nice if you get off the main streets?  what's wrong with the main streets?  (btw, thanks for the offer stephkay -- if you've got a hot brother, maybe i'll think about it  ;D)

Do you think I should even bother bringing a car?  I know it's ridiculously hard to get a parking permit (esp. if I live close to campus) but I figured i'd want to drive around LA and such.

What about thoughts on roommating with people you don't know, via craigslist or the ucla roommate finder?

I'm thinking about attending UCLA this fall, and I'm looking for advice on housing.
I'm from NJ and my first time vising LA will be during the Welcome Reception 4/9, so right now I have no idea what i'm getting myself into. 

Is it difficult to get on-campus housing?  What towns do most students live in, and what are the best ways to find apartments? 

About how much should I expect to spend on rent (assuming I'm going to get my own place and would like to live in a relatively safe area)?  Also, I want to bring a car -- is it hard to find apartments that come with parking?

How do most people get to classes?  Bus?  Is public transportation reliable in the area?

Thanks in advance for any info you can give.
