apartment hunting

i will be attending uw this fall as a transfer student from florida. i've been doing a little apartment hunting, and i feel a little overwhelmed. i have a few questions that maybe some of you seattle natives could answer for me that might make this process a little less daunting.

first thing, cost of living is lower in florida, so most of the prices i've seen seem a little pricey to me. how much does a decent, one bedroom apartment usually goes for? what's considered cheap, expensive, etc?

what are the summers like? i've noticed that many apartments don't come with a/c. that's just unheard of down here, but i doubt it will get hot enough to where a floridian will think it unbearable.

um.. any suggestions on apartments and/or locations i should check out or avoid would be greatly appreciated.

thanks so much!

So, I moved into Nordheim for the summer and since they are repaving Steven's Way, I don't think any buses will run my way. (I am supposed to take the 372 or the 68). Is anyone else in this situation?? Also, I messed up again! I decided to work until 10:30pm twice a week at the library and the bus stops running at 9:45! (And that is if its running!). I don't know what to do, I have a bike, but I don't want to bike up the hill (Nordheim is next to U-Village). So I feel pretty screwed. Should I tell my boss that I can't work those hours? Or should I work and try to get my bike up to the school (hopefully by bus) and then bike down the hill really fast at 10:30 when I get off of work??
