Criminal law. Fantastic.

LA is really not that superficial. They didn't want people looking like scrubs at the ASD, but I went in a t-shirt and it was fine. Whatever style you prefer, you'd fit right in in L.A.

Do people live in pasadena, culver city, or west hollywood? Mainly interested in living off campus..dont mind the commute..but dont want to be isolated! Where do most of the students live assuming you arent going the terrace-college dorm route. Any info much appreciated!
Pasadena and Culver City are pretty far and, in my opinion, too quiet and boring. West Hollywood is best if you are LGBT or into expensive clubs and high rent. Most law students live in lofts and apartments in downtown L.A. simply because it's close to campus and has some activity going on (Staples Center, LA Live, bars, etc).
If you want a S.F. vibe then find a place in Silverlake. If you want convenience, the neighborhoods just north of campus are great. If you want to be in an active area for 20-somethings, then Hollywood proper (near Highland/Sunset or Sunset/Vine).
I would personally find a place as close to campus as possible, but no more than a 15 minute drive in traffic. Don't subject yourself to a long commute every day during law school, that would drain the life out of you.
