: WHOA for $295 a month ...... but then its all relative isn't it?

: I Bet john has never made more then $8.50 an hour, or why would anyone complain about that rent?

Well, my wife and I are both college students. She makes an even 6 an hour and I make an even 8 (which is pretty good for a college job)..

In addition our *new* apt is two bedroom, is MUCH larger than the old one we're having problems with, and is in a better neighbordhood and closer to campus and is only $300 a month.

The going rate for a one bedroom here is roughly $250. I guess it doesn't sound like much to you but $295 is just a little under three months of groceries at Walmart for us.
