Hello. I am an international student going to LA to study at a college.
I am using Padmapper, RadPad, Trulia Rentals to find an apartment since my school doesn't have dorm.
But it seems impossible for me to immediately apply for a house because I am not an American.
Does this mean I can only contact agencies via email or message?
Is it possible to rent an apartment without meeting landlord in person?
If not, how do international students get a house?
