I'm looking to move out to the west coast this fall and I want an urban area with rent $600 or under. Is this possible and what are some good areas?

You can find basic one bedroom apartments in your price range. However, rents are supposed to go up about 10% in the next year, so long term may be tougher.

Actually, is La Grande close to any good places? I know it's rural, but the college there looks nice and I was hoping to attend it. But like I said I do like urban areas more so are there any within driving distance?

If you are college material surely you can locate La Grande on a map and determine its distance to urban areas of interest.

Are college students getting dumber these days???!!***

You realize, of course, that OR east of the cascades is mostly empty except for Bend. There are only 25,000 people in the entire county where La Grande is located. As for urban areas within driving distance, maybe tri cities in WA or Boise, though I doubt either of those have much to offer. You should also remember that EOU only has about 1600 students on campus. It's tiny.

If you want urban, you want Portland or Eugene, probably Portland. Yes, it's possible to rent a place for $600/month, but it probably won't be the nicest thing. If you can get roomates, then your $600 will get you a lot more.

In another thread the OP refers to the west coast as a "state". Something's jiggy here.
