I'm totally jumping the gun here, but I have a long-distance interview for a job at UF and now I'm second-guessing accepting the interview ... I know Gainesville can be expensive, housingwise, and the range for the job is $35-40k. Can I live on that as a single mom with school-age kid? I'll mention that I'm living on $45k right now, in a much bigger city, but still.

That's kind of a hard question to answer. I'm sure people do it, but what kind of quality of life are you looking for? Do you expect to live in town and take the bus to save money? Will you have to pay for child care? If you are making more money and living comfortably where you are, maybe a move is not the best idea right now, especially if you have to ask this question. Sorry, just the parent in me coming out.
