Re: Relocating to New Mexico from CA
rw

    If you qualify for a level 1 license you will make around $33,000;
    a level 2 license you will make $40,000-43,000. I'm not sure which
    they will give you. If they give you level 1, you will be able to
    get level 2 within 2-3 years. However, you will have a higher
    standard of living even with these salaries than you had in CA. To
    give you a price comparison, you can buy a cute little house here
    for $150,000-180,0000 (might need new carpet or something) and a
    nice, large, charming 2br apartment in a decent neighborhood for
    about $700-800/month. I pay $650 for a good sized, renovated 2 br
    apartment but the neighborhood is a little sketchy.
