UC Davis has more bikes on campus than any other school I've ever seen - few students there need to drive at all.

I hope I'm not insulting you and I'm sure you've done your research, but why Pierce College in Southern Cal and UC Davis in upper Northern Cal? Bigdumbgod is correct Davis is very bike centric, where Pierce is more car dependent.

It's ok,no insult taken. I find pierce to be more diverse in the veterinarian studies,also that it is the most popular college to transfer to UC Davis. I am also informed that in pierce if you keep your grades high you can go directly to your masters degree.Also the community in pierce seems very friendly.

Well one of my sons lives near Woodland Hills, which is close to Pierce and he found several affordable apartments in the area, so good luck to you.

Hey CiiCii! I just moved in from Puerto Rico to Canoga Park. I dont know if you're still looking for help or not but hey, let me know. Let me tell you this, there are NO caribbeans around this area! LOL! It would be nice to meet a friendly face around here...

I just graduated from Engineering and began working in this insane awesome city!

Alittle off topic.

I wanna know one thing, what do you think of Mexicans?

I just always wanted to know. I got nothing against you guys, infact I had friends in Chicago and we hung out like I do with other Mexicans.

I never understood the beef.

Were not Mexicans... If youre implying that puertoricans do not get along with mexicans well then let me tell you a story.

Every half assed latino that was born IN the states and NOT in the island and hates mexicans and proclaims himself puertorican or "boricua" is NOT a puertorican at all.... Its just another problem child with an identity crysis.

I would give an arm and a leg if I had to for my very close mexican friends that I met in the island.

There are some people that think that becuase their mother or father or great, great whatever, were in fact born and raised in the island, then that gives them the right to go about saying that they are puertorican and THEN you have them yelling down on mexicans and looking all macho and acting all ghetto.

Let me tell you, this is NOT a puertorican and they only stain my island's reputation for humbleness multi-cultural, ethnic acceptance.

So hey, to all those "boricuas" in chicago, new york and wherever that do not know a drop of spanish, are not lively, humble, party hungry and friendly with EVERYONE than sir, you are NO puertorican... youre, youre not even american... youre just some dude with a major identity problem....

Thanks!
Sorry to burst your bubble, but that is a dangerous conclusion to draw. A car is, in most cases, absolutely necessary in Los Angeles - especially in the Valley. If you live/work/go to school/shop along the Orange Line, you might be able to make it work, but it very rarely works that way. Coming from New York, you will be in for a rude awakening very fast. I have no idea who ranked L.A. the 3rd in anything that has to do with transportation, but I would take that with a huge salt lick (forget just a grain).

Just read your last post re Mexicans and Puerto Ricans. Great attitude, love to hear that.
