    My Cousin is transferring to UCLA next year so I was wondering what it's like out in California, I heard Somali's out there are much more chill. Whats the community like? I would imagine its not something like Minnesota

    UCLA costs 30k per year for out of state students, and thats after full scholarships. So manshallah your cousin must come from a wealthy family.



    There is not a Somali community in LA, the closest one will be in San Diego.

    Somalis are all over San Diego, which is a shirt drive from LA and it is the type of place they would live wtf, they only don’t live in LA because it sucks to live there with it’s traffic and homeless colonies, it’s basically a good tourist spot

    its a big spread out state, the somalis there would be bigger than most other states if this wasn't the case, in fact reer daygo in itself is a top 5 Somali American city population wise, and theres many in the Bay Area and Sacramento

    I recently visited LA and I loved it so much I wanted to live there. Someone told me San Diego is much better.
    That’s more or less par for course for out-of-state tuition for most state colleges/unis, unless you’re in the Midwest where they’re much cheaper? At least, the out-of-state tuition for our university is the same.

    Somalis settled in San Diego in big numbers before any other city in America, it shouldn't surprise you. :)

    San deigo used to be a city with 50 to 100k plus somalis but now i doubt they got 20k due to many moving to cheaper places like texas,arizona and ohio plus minneapolis

    120 miles is a short drive? That’s a nightmare.

    It’s hard to get from LA to SD under two hours even without bad traffic.
