I was told that Loyola is really in a nice neighborhood, but then I read that the law school is gated and that you need an ID card to access the campus. I am not able to fly out to LA to take a visit, so hopefully someone can help me out with this. Thanks.


Loyola is in an area that used to be dangerous but is not dangerous anymore. This is due to the area being mostly central american. About 15 years ago the area was mostly black and was significantly more dangerous. The school is a 5 minute walk to Staples Center and LA Live. You can also walk to downtown in about 10 minutes. If you afraid of brown people maybe you should reconsider law school in Los Angeles.


I am a "brown person" myself...so no I am not afraid at all. I was just wondering because I want to live as close as possible to campus BUT, I don't want to live in a bad neighborhood more. So if the neighborhood surrounding Loyola was bad, this means I would have to commute, which is a factor I am starting to consider now that I have a decision to make.
Thanks for your honesty though.

I know someone who got accepted to Loyola with a 3.6 and a 151. It maybe an exception, but it happens. Why not call admissions and seek their advice?


What did this person look like?


Ugh, who cares what the person looks like?

Oh. Well there has to be something we do not know. I would rather not speculate.

I can see you want to say it, but can't find the words. I'll say it for you.

Danteshek, that is clearly a very detailed and nuanced report about the LLS campus location bordering on Koreatown. I appreciate your extensively researched, non-racist report of the area. I will be coming to you when I need well-spoken information about LLS in the future.

i think the real reason the neighborhood has become safer is that all the black people realized they couldnt use loyolas basketball court and left.

black people love basketball.

Sorry for offending your delicate sensibilities. I do not think anyone doubts the reason the area is not as dangerous as it used to be.

Gentrification. And the disbanding of CRASH.

So less black people is just a good side effect! MIRITE?

Code for more wealthy people.

You might as well say crime is lower because the good basketball players left.
