did you get an acceptance?

im from LA, and used to work for USC and hoping to transfer too. I wouldn't recommend living around USC at all. that area is horrible...non stop violence. Koreatown is cheap but also a crime ridden area.

I would reccomend anything on the westside, culver city, Santa monica. Way more expensive but you will have less problems than you would at USC campus.

I'm transferring to USC and just got a place. I got an apartment in Atwater Village, which is close to Los Feliz. It's pretty close to school (about a 25-30 minute commute). When I asked my USC friends where to live, people usually recommended Santa Monica, Los Feliz, Silverlake, Atwater, and the Wilshire area. I personally love Atwater Village -- it's perhaps a little hipster, but it feels very safe, my apartment community is gated, and I can see Griffith Park from my window.

i looked around there; it looked nice and safe.

i also recommend culver city. they actually just opened up a culver city metro which stops right in front of the law building so that's convenient in case you don't want to always drive.
