Good Idea? I wouldn't be a resident (at least for the first year until i qualify for residency status) but they seem to have a strong program in moving images archival studies (which i guess makes sense because of the access to film and television in los angeles). Anyway I don't actually know much about the area other than the stuff you see in movies which i'm sure aren't completley accurate (just like CSI: MIami isn't an accurate portrayal of Miami). What are some good areas to live in if i go to UCLA (i'd want roommates, so I guess rent would be cheaper), and what are some things to keep in mind if I get accepted and do decide to make the move. Or is LA a bad choice to be a student because of the fact that I won't have a big income due to going to school and working at the same time.

So you would be doing undergraduate studies? You should come here and go to a community college for the first year to earn residency. Then, I think if you go two years to Santa Monica College, you are guaranteed admission to UCLA. I think that's how it works. That way, you wouldn't have to pay for out of state.

If you can afford it, then I think coming out here would be a great experience for you. The UCLA area is a very nice area, there are plenty of places to live, plenty of roommates to find, etc. Just figure out what it is going to cost you, and if you can afford it, why not do it?
