Kerri,
 
Have you found an apartment within a reasonable price range.   I have yet to visit DC, (due to finals next week) but from looking on-line, it appears that the rent is going to bleed my pockets dry.

Mseered,
 
My husband and I visited DC the first week of November looking for a place.  We focused our search mostly on the suburbs of VA.  
 
We found a place in Manassas Park, called Haverhill.  It is only 2 years old and it a nice community right next to the VRE (Virginia Railway Express).  I can walk to the train and itís a 30 min ride to Alexandria.  Our 2 BD, 2 Bath place is $1339 per month to rent.  They have a 3% rent deduction for government employees; as did some other places, so ask about that.  It could save you a few bucks.
 
We looked in Woodbridge, VA also, but we didnít think it was as nice and a lot of the communities there were income restricted, which I didnít qualify for.  
 
We also looked in Reston, VA and Herndon VA. Reston is nice and has a nice shopping complex, but itís far out.  The only public transportation currently are shuttle busses to the metro stations.  
 
We looked around the Dulles airport area too, but it has the same issue.  You either drive, or catch a shuttle bus to a metro station.
 
I did quite a bit of research online.  The places I liked in Alexandria that had good reviews were too high for us (started from $1700).   It seemed to me the more reasonable places in Alexandria had very poor reviews (bugs and the like).  
 
There are some more affordable places in the southwest DC area, but Iíve read that this is the most dangerous area of town.  So we avoided that area altogether.
 
If you canít swing the rent, you arenít alone.  Iíve looked at craigslist online a lot, and Iíve noticed that there are a lot of people looking to rent out basementís of their home or extra bedrooms.  
 
If you have any questions, let me know.  I can try to answer them.

Hi Kerri,
Do you know about school rating for the place that you intend to rent. I have a boy in elementary school and would like to know school rating
thanks
