    Anyone know decent places to live in DC or Northern Virginia (Rosslyn, Alexandria) with metro stops where I can pay less than $800 a month (preferably closer to $600-$700)? Thanks...I'll be doing the Georgetown SMP next year and could use some advice!

    Lincoln Towers in Ballston is the only affordable one there if you get a 2br or 3br. I suggest you get off the metro there and walk around to the various apts.

    I pay 867/mo for a room w/ bath in a 3br with parking and all utilities included. My apt is called Richmond Square. Very nice complex.

    Don't forget Maryland too. You can get an apartment in Hyattsville, Chillum, Silver Spring, or College Park which are close to the metro, and get to GU in no more than 30 minutes. I've seen prpcies ranging frrom 500-800 in these areas.

    How about somewhere that is walking distance to G-town. I'm looking around 1-1.4k per month. BTW, I'm not rich, I plan on sharing the place with a friend. No matter how small it is, I'm sure it can't be worse than the UCLA dorms.
