I am fundraising to cover costs of living for the first 9 month school year. I have been accepted into UCLA for the 2017 school year.
I will be making the move to California alone all the way from Gold Coast, Australia.
I have my visa and stuff sorted and I can even do modelling work in the US (O-1 Visa) as I am signed with some good agencies and have secured work.
I have already paid my admission fees and health insurance to study Law and will be majoring in Corporate and Entertainment Law. I have arrangements to sit my LSAT once I arrive in January 2017.
The following breakdown is a yearly cost for my off campus expenses. I am only funding the first year while I get on my feet in a new country. I am currently working in Australia as a bookkeeper so I know how to manage my money well. I understand there will extra costs not covered in this breakdown provided by the University and I am fine to deal with these myself.
