Any advice on decent and inexpensive areas to live in Los Angeles???

  1. I am currently waiting for an acceptance letter from a school in Los Angeles so I thought I'd start looking now since I am not familiar with the area. Any advice anyone? I am searching for decent areas (low crime rate) but inexpensive as well because I will not be working if I'm in the program.

    Los Angeles covers a lot of square miles. In fact, I believe it's one of the largest counties in the state. It would be helpful if you told us what school you were going to attend.

    That's an excellent point. I applied to Dominguez Hillls in Carson.

    Cal State Dominguez Hills has an excellent nursing program. Congratulations!

    Torrance, Gardena, Hawthorne, and Long Beach (other areas too) have some reasonably priced places.
    I know one fortunate public health nurse (PHN) Dominguez Hills graduate who rents a lovely guest house from an 80 somthing lady, who lives in the big house on the same lot for $400.00 a month!

    Her landlady doesn't seem to know how rents have risen over the years.

    Doubt you'll find someting that inexpensive without roommate(s).

    I'd ask students who live nearby.

    Thank you for that helpful info...It's def a great start for me in terms of searching because I had NO CLUE.
