    OK, so here's my story.
    I'm a college student in my final year of college studying Psychology, Biology and Physics.
    I'm from London, England but would very much love to study abroad in the USA (L.A., California most preferably) for University, I plan to study Forensic Science and earn a degree in the subject in order to become a Crime Scene Analyst later on in life.
    Are there any people on the forum from L.A., California that studies Forensics or anyone know information about this course?
    I would very much like some advice, at least know how much the tuition fees would be if I were to study Forensics in L.A., California.
    And I also need help with which University to apply to, I do not know of any Universities in L.A. and I was hoping you guys would list me some that they know within the area.
    Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I appreciate those who are willing to help me out.
    It's kind of a crisis for me since I'm going to have to start University soon as an undergraduate yet I haven't found much information on studying abroad, I don't know of any Universities there and I do not know of the tuition fees so please help!
    xD

    Hope this helps a bit. I am sure you could contact a student advisor via email. There are also tours to take etc, etc.

    Kalster as has already given you a jump start, but definitely the best way is to look up the school websites and call or email someone to ask questions directly if you can't find the info you need on the web page.
    Man can will nothing unless he has first understood that he must count on no one but himself; that he is alone, abandoned on earth in the midst of his infinite responsibilities, without help, with no other aim than the one he sets himself, with no other destiny than the one he forges for himself on this earth.

    Yep, most senior staff who know most about their course, what you need in the line of grades and of course the "ever looming" money side. They would be more than happy to discuss it with you.

    For a split second I was half convinced you were my cousin, all those subjects for her A levels and a few years back wanted to do forensics. Also from london.

    Thank you guys for getting back to me!
    I have basically looked up the websites of Universities in L.A. and have managed to e-mail staff members.
    I am currently waiting for replies.
    Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it and it kinda helped me out.

    As for googod3rd:
    Oh really? Wow, did she end up doing Forensics at the end?

    Well she's still doing her A levels :P but I think she now wants to do some kind of med/social work Haven't seen her in a while bar online. Just thought it was worth a comment.
