Cal State Northridge has the best accounting program among the Cal States in southern Cal and many alumi are hired by Big 4 firms. Other good accounting schools are at USC, Loyola Marymount and Claremont, but the tuition at Northridge will be much less than these. If possible, try and go straight to a 4 yr uni, instead of LACC first. If you want to go to a community college first, Pasadena City College and Santa Monica College might be better choices than LACC (I don't know...LACC might be okay too). As for AUS vs. US, it probably depends where you want to live and work long term. The accounting standards are a little different and I think AUS follows the british/international standards (although there's talk of the US following suit, eventually).

There are quite a few pt jobs in LA - the tuition question is tough. Are you going to have residency status?

LAMC has a direct program with CSUN...I'd go to Mission College...small and you can get good profs and study while networking with peers that are most likely going to CSUN as well. I do that, but for Econ.
