    What about cost of living??? How much different in Boston compared to where you live?

    Ack! I knew I shouldn't have left Boston!!

    BTW--It's very pricey to live in the city, but depending on where you look, it can be affordable. I had a small two-bedroom apt. for $825 near Newton (about 5 miles from downtown), but the landlord raised it to $1300 after we moved out.

    There are a lot of students in Boston, so you can find affordable places to rent. Buying is another story, unfortunately. Property costs are over-inflated.
