Yeah, finding housing was the worst part for me! I just had to realize that in order to be in a safe area with a decent apartment I was going to have to pay a bit more than I wanted. What are your plans-keep looking or just wait until you get out there?
Sure! I just went there yesterday and took a tour and it's REALLY nice. Plus, if you sign a 12 month lease you get a month free-which helps a bit. Have you looked around a lot for a place to live Fred? I spent literally all day yesterday, looked at tons of places and for me this was by far the best. The area wasn't my favorite but I figured I'm close to school and can walk so that's all that really matters. Good luck finding a place!
Studios are $1449, but go up depending on your location in the building. Rent is high but I spent all day looking yesterday and everything is at least that much if not more-if you want a safe area with a half way decent apartment.
So I've decided that I will be attending Southwestern Part-Time this fall. I really wanted full-time but after talking to admissions today they informed me that no decisions will me made until the very end of July/beginning of August and I just can't wait that long to find housing and move. Also there was no guarantee that I would be able to still have a part time spot if not offered a full time one. So I figured, why jeopordize an opportunity when I can just go part time and then transfer to full time next year. So now I have to find an apartment in LA! Anyone have any suggestions?
Darlin- I really hope everything works out for the best and that you get a place at Southwestern this year! Do you know where you would live if you do get in? It sucks waiting around like this. I am currently in California on vacation and I would LOVE it if they would give me a real decision about the FT soon so I could find an apartment while I'm here.
But eitherway I hope they let you know something soon.
