Thank you so much for your help!! Ok, i feel much better about this, i think its a sign that its time to take a leap of faith! I am scared to be completely honest but it helps to have such good reviews of the people and hospital, and all those who i've talked to on the phone have been very helpful. I did find a place in mandan for 1100, 2brm & heat is included, so thinking about it since i could get a roommate eventually and split...much better than when i lived in westwood, cali and paid 650 a month to share a 1brm with 3 other girls!!
