Crap.  I hope a week is enough, because I am slightly picky myself. I really just need an affordable place with a den so I can study, a landlord who will allow me to have a cat and paint the walls, walk-in closets and hardwood floors.  Oh, and it has to be in the perfect location that is close to UCLA and my SO's job.  Is that too much to ask?!    :P

finding the ur "perfect" place in la NEAR ucla, in one week is going to be a challenge...more power to you if you can do it but you better set up like more appointments than you can handle BEFORE you come out...just for backups

I just withdrew from my non-UCLA acceptances.

See you guys in the fall.

Also, for apartment hunting, as an LA native I would say use westside rentals and be willing to entertain a loose conception of "westside"

Check out culver city, or better yet - westchester.  It sounds like westwood, is still somewhat cheap, and while not too exciting, is a safe, family oriented area with not too much crime - even though it is close to inglewood

Culver City is pretty much the center of the world, and the greatest place to ever live. It is in the middle of LA, yet is a small town. You can get anywhere soon, but still have a quiet and affordable house to sleep in when you get home.
OK, since I have lived in Culver City my whole life I might be a teeny bit biased.
There are actually a million great places to live if you plan on going to UCLA. Once they accept me off of their waitlist I will be more willing to talk about this very sensitive topic.

Wow, that's worse than UCLA's asking me for money during my Senior year there.

They also ask if you have any legal experience on the application.  I'm hoping since I have never seen the inside of a law office or read a brief that might help things a little. I certainly would not mind being accepted into the program.
