The smart, ambitious people in LA are in technology, entertainment, finance and business. In that sense it has similar demographics to New York, and a similar culture of excess that New York has. Spoiled valley girls or spoiled long island bridge and tunnel crowds don't vary. There's less entertainment and more finance (or at least there was in New York), and the girls are skinnier in New York, though more athletic in LA. I think the advantage for that one goes to NY. But I don't see the city comparing unfavorably in terms of people to NYC. It's a similarly large, hard to generalize city.
However, I think it's less uniformly politically aware/ecoconscious than a Boston or an SF, and like every other city in the union, less wonky/brainy than DC. But there are lots of niches in LA. LA is probably only a conglomeration of niches...

I think it has to do with indigos, being a surreptitious snake-oil salesman, and because of the Latino vote.
I'm a 3.3/171 and was accepted last week.
