BTW, you can fully expect whatever place you rent to be a dump at that price point. Boston is fully of overpriced crummy apartments because of all the students. My suggestion is not to worry about it too much--find somewhere you can walk t--spend time in your neighborhood, not your apartment...

spoken like the true old fart that you are

nothing wrong with somerville, there are some decent spots that are half the price of back bay, especially right near davis.
