I just got accepted to USC (also got into Buffalo, waiting on several more) and am definitely excited about their program. I am worried, however, about living (hopefully car-free) in LA. I plan on studying and designing walkable places because I am passionate about them. Am I going to need a car to be in LA? To commute to USC? I know there is on-campus housing, but I am going to be moving with my girlfriend; can one live in on-campus apartments with a gf/bf? I am pretty sure married people are accommodated, but that may not apply to gf/bfs (we're not quite ready to get married yet.) If we get an off-campus apt, will my gf need a car to get to her job (wherever it may be) or is it possible, if annoying, to use transit?
