    Los Angeles Housing 2019

    Would really appreciate any tips and suggestions on where to look and where to steer clear! Personally, right now the only school I've heard back from is Loyola Marymount (MFA), but I'm still also waiting to hear from UCLA, so any input on housing for either school would be greatly appreciated...

    Attending AFI - Cinematography 2019

    First time applying. Application process has been smooth, the admissions department is very helpful. They have some very specific guidelines for portfolio submissions and general rules which were different from other colleges.
