THREE stations at USC - I count the one at Exposition/Vermont - the other two are Jefferson/USC and Exposition Park/USC which opens out to the campus at Trousdale Ave.

This is USC in 2012. You are thinking of the USC kids circa the 1960's to the 1980's. MOST of the USC student body these days are quite serious students. The school's brain power has really gone up in recent years. Of course, on a college campus there will always be some party animals.
I notice Sal that you and I are often on the same page on things

I live in a building downtown that is about 20% USC students. People stay out late and have people over on the weekends. I stuff in my earplugs on Friday and Saturday nights when I'm in before 1am. On weekdays, its never an issue, not even on artwalk nights.

I am in a similar position as the OP (well, my gf is, i will be finishing diss).

We have heard good things of Culver City (especially with the metro stop getting completed), but have also heard good things about Los Feliz, Silver lake, and Echo Park. Any particular ranking of those areas in terms of safety/fun areas for PhD students (bars, coffee shops, restaurants, etc).

Any suggestions beyond CL and padmapper for narrowing down a location? I may be in LA in July, but that is only if I get accepted to a summer seminar.
