Los Angeles, CA - What Do You Think?

So, with me starting my senior year of high school in the fall, it's that time to start considering college options. I am planning on majoring in some form of business.

I am from Portland, OR and would prefer to go out-of-state. Someplace that is not like Portland.

Several of my west coast options are in the L.A. area. These include LMU in downtown, Whittier College, Cal State in San Bernardino, and University of Redlands.

I have heard lots of mixed reviews about L.A and its surrounding areas. Some say it's awesome, and some say it's awful. So I am curious...

What do you think of Los Angeles? Any feedback would be great!

They're probably both right. Lots of very distinct communities which vary immensely.

I assume you mean the LMU main campus in Westchester, since I think only the law school is downtown.

Frankly most of those do absolutely nothing for me, but LMU is the exception. Nice campus, nice neighborhood, near LAX!, fairly close to a lot of nice areas. I think LMU is the runaway standout here.

That would make sense considering how big the city is. (or how big it looks on a map, anyways...)

Cool, thanks. It seems to be marginally outside of my "range" (looking at ACT scores, etc.) but I would still definitely consider it as an option.

It should also be pointed out that CSSB and Redlands are waaay out there. It's a whole different world to LA, you might as well be on the moon. It has some positives, surrounded by nice mountain and desert scenery in a residential setting. But just saying, anyones thoughts on "Los Angeles" aren't going to really apply out in the far Inland Empire, for better or for worse.

I wasn't very familiar with Whittier College and that area, but quickly looking it seems nicer than I thought.

LMU is about the only one really in LA. A decent part of town, near the ocean and LAX.

Whittier College, Cal State San Bernardino, and University of Redlands are all in the boonies so to speak.

Whittier is in the city by its name, a bit of a mixed city, both a lower class bedroom community with some nearby neighboring industrial cities, and also a bit of an upscale town set against the foothills.
San Bernardino is a different county. The campus is a bit isolated but newish set against the mountains on the road to Las Vegas. The community nearby has lots of cookie cutter style suburbia home communities.
Redlands also is out in San Bernardino County. A more urban setting than Cal State, but still out in suburbia and far from LA proper.
If you go visit anyone of the last two schools fly into ONT. Much much closer to both. Oh and it can be quite hot out that way.

Good luck !

Los Angeles as a whole is awesome, sucks, is too big, just right, too crowded, too sparse, too industrial, too much sprawl, beautiful, ugly.....basically I love it and I hate it.

Pros: the weather, the weather, did I mention the weather, the very distinct communities, very distinct cultures, the weather, some beautiful areas, nice mix of landforms (mountains, hills, desert, beach, ocean, etc.) and their associated activities, and the weather.

Cons: the sprawl, having to drive everywhere, it taking an hour and a half to drive from Whittier to Calabasas on a Saturday, some of the not-so-nice areas (though you get used to them), lack of greenery, too much asphalt and concrete.....

As stated, LMU is in Westchester, which is part of LA, but not near downtown. It's a nice area, though, near the beach and LAX, in between the South Bay (Hermosa, Redondo, etc.) and the Westside (Venice, Santa Monica, etc.).

Whittier College has a nice campus right near uptown Whittier, which has shops, restaurants, etc. More a small-town feel than big-city feel. My girlfriend lives in Whittier, so I'm out there a lot. As LAXintl stated, it has (at least) two distinct feels. Near the hills and uptown, it's expensive, with large houses and yards and such. Farther south, it's more working class, though still suburban. I wouldn't call Whittier boonies; it's about 12 miles east of downtown LA.

I wouldn't go to college in San Bernardino if you paid me.

Redlands is a nice town, and the campus is nice as well, but it's WAY the hell out there (near San Bernardino). San Bernardino county will be in the 90s and 100s during the day from mid-spring to mid-fall.

It seems like you aren't stressing too much over which school to pick. I envy you because when I was graduating highschool I was losing sleep over where I wanted to go!

With that said, as a business student, I'd suggest making sure that location is a very small component of your selection formula. At the end of the day, it's the quality of your education, not the location of it, that will ultimately shape what you take away from university. In my case, I decided to attend a school that was located in the middle of nowhere, in a city that is the antithesis of my personality. Although the location is less than ideal, I chose this school because the program itself was a best fit for me.

If you're dead-set on going to school in California, so be it, but just make sure you're giving the quality of the program a much greater weighting than the campus itself.

I've been to Los Angeles several times, but never actually left LAX, so I'm not too much help there. But I wish you the best of luck with your tough decision!

It is a pretty good location. Although there isn't that much directly adjacent to it (mostly quiet residential), you're between two hotspots of beach and nightlife. Go north on PCH and you hit Marina, Venice, and Santa Monica within 6 miles; go south on PCH and you hit Manhattan, Hermosa, and Redondo within 9 miles.

I believe that, if I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would go the community college route to save money (which might be spent on Graduate School), then go to a state school - also to save money.

When I look around today I see a lot of successful people who went to state schools. Areas like Business and Engineering are ideal fields for state schools. Same with various fields in Medicine. The costs of a college education today is so extremely high that I would want to avoid the long term debt associated with school. Getting out of university with minimum debt should be one criteria for any high school student who isn't from a wealthy family.

Another reason why I would hit the CC level first is that I could get the "general education" courses out of the way at a far lower cost. It also provides more time to change majors if you were not on a firm path.

3 of those 4 I woudl not even consider "LA" and as others said, are a world away. LA to me is really about a 'feeling' and not a city in that sense, so it's hard to answer what one feels about "LA" as it is a cornucopia of neighborhoods and suburbs. I actually grew up there, IN Westchester/Playa del Rey of all places and went to Westchester High School when it was a really good school (in the 80s). The area around the school is very good but the high school may no longer be., students bussed in from outlying areas and those students living in Westchester going to private schools. But Westchester is suburban, but is part of the City of Los Angeles and uses the "Los Angeles, CA 90045" zip code, is close to LAX and the cool beach areas of Playa del Rey, and further south to El Segundo, Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach. You could probably find a share apt in Playa del Rey I would imagine. Im sure many attending LSU do things like that. I m sure you have your options squared away...

Anyway , I guess you have to figure out what you are looking for during your time there.

I lived in San Francisco for several years and there was always a friendly ribbing between the two cities, but I dont' always get the 'hate' of LA. I mean, it is really scores of suburbs and towns in a huge area, you don't like one area, go to another,. lol. Just like the US, you dont like one state, move to another... Big country. Big City (well I wouldn't call it a city like San Francisco or Seattle are).

Unless you're fortunate enough to have affluent parents or you're receiving full-scholarships, do yourself a favor and commute to a public university close to home. No, it's not as sexy as going off to college but you'll discover that four years will come & go much quicker than your four years of high school -- and when it's over certainly don't want to be owing $800/month in student loans while being told by prospective employers to pursue a graduate degree. As the cost of college has soared in the past decade, many top financial advisors actually recommend against going off to college ,believe it or not... And God Bless those parents who delay retirement or take on additional hours to pay for their kids' educations. I won't be one of them  Smile.

In regards to college choices, there's no value at all in going to a california state university and being an out of state resident. You're paying tuition at near private school rates for public university access--not a good bargain, IMHO.

Way overrated in my opinion. People are lured there based on what they see on TV, however, living there for any extended period of time has too many drawbacks. L.A. is expensive, crowded (traffic is terrible) and too spread out. Also, LA will not give you a true, traditional college experience.

I would highly recommend selecting a college located in a smaller metro area. It will give you a much better college experience. Colleges located in large metro areas tend to lose their "college" feel due to all of the distractions of a large metro area.
