Bolded is ridiculously true. Pasadena, Northridge, Santa Monica, Culver, Long Beach, WeHo, Brentwood, Ktown, DTLA, Lil' Tokyo. It's all what you're comfortable with.

hello potential future classmates,

i'd like to know your thoughts on attending loyola at sticker price. i'm on that same priority list that some others have mentioned but in the event that i'm not awarded any money, do you think loyola is worth attending at sticker? it's my top choice, i'd like to practice in the area and all that but its quite a large amount of debt to take on.

does anyone know if there is a shot at getting money if you do well after your first year?

is anyone else planning on attending at sticker?

thanks for any comments!

Looking for a roommate?

I have decided to attend Loyola Law School. Big shock right, being on this blog and all. I am looking for a roommate, male or female, but you must be cool with living with a female. I would prefer to find a roommate who 1.) Loves the beach 2.) Is respectful 3.) Not crazy

If you meet these three requirements you should post a reply! Also, I'm poor, so if you want to pay rent on the upwards of $1,000 and live in the Medici... find someone else!

^^ I normally just read these forums but HAD to let you know that Culver City would be a pretty intense bike commute five days a week... In my opinion, if you're looking to bike, you're a lot better of staying central, mid-LA. Mid-Wilshire is probably the most cost effective area if you want to bike or use the metro/bus system.

Currently driving down PCH in LA behind a shiny, black convertible Maserati with a Loyola Law School license plate holder. As cliche as it sounds, there is a chick riding shotgun, presumably a hot one. Can't tell from here.

Just thought incoming 1Ls would appreciate that image.

Accepted.

Primarily here looking for a roommate(s). I do not mind if you are a guy or a girl, just attitude/experience living out of your mother's home comes first (don't want to be raising children). I am primary flexible in choosing where to live, and have been living on my own for a while (5 years), looking for someone studious yet outgoing preferably. But again, attitude/experience is priority. Will be looking for a room up until mid July, let me know guys (shoot me a pm) and congrats to everyone! :)

Hi all! Has anyone who was on the priority scholarship list received news from Loyola yet? Or does anyone know if they are still in the process of awarding money? Thanks in advance.

what would you guys say is the average rent for a studio in LA? I know this varies very widely, i'm not looking for an exact number more just a range. i'm about to rent starting in a couple of days and i just want to make sure i'm paying an average amount.

also, i'm new to the LA area so if anyone is here or will be here this summer and wants to get together with future Loyola students let me know and we can figure something out!

In my experience, a studio can be anywhere between $700-$1200, depending on location, amenities, size and whatnot. A lot of times, studios include all utilities so keep that in mind as you figure out your rental rate!

I came to Loyola at sticker. Getting a scholarship is apparently automatic if you're in the top 10% of the class your 1L year. I'm expecting to hit or significantly exceed that goal but only time will tell since grades have not been released. For most students, I do not think that Loyola should be paid sticker (NOTE: this is assuming you don't already from a background of money where it really doesn't matter. but if taking out full loans for it, seriously reconsider).

That being said, it is extremely stressful and very tough to bank on being in the top 10% for scholarship consideration. I wouldn't necessarily suggest people do it unless they seriously have the drive and motivation to put in the requisite time (10-12+ Hrs per day, every day, including a good part of winter+ spring break). If you have other offers with scholarships seriously consider those as well.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Be sure to check the employment statistics before jumping to any causal conclusions. Judging from the students' cars in the Loyola parking garage, there is a good chance that the driver's parents purchased that car for him.
