My opinion might not matter too much, as I'm still young and renting, but I don't think I would commit to anything financially unless I had a secure job. I mean... in this economy... I graduated a few years back and got a job immediately. After a year +, I took some time off of full-time work to take a few extra classes (a ton of laboratory based classes, so working + school was impossible). When the classes wrapped up, I figured I'd be able to find a job in no time. Despite several promising interviews, I ended up working at Target for a long time despite the fact I have a BS in Psychology and Chemistry. I probably had 5 interviews that went extremely well, but after hearing nothing for a few days-weeks, I'd call them back to here that they've frozen any new hiring for the time being.

Just be weary of any financial commitments when you're income is little to zero.

No matter what you do though, you're going to be stuck with a commitment when you're looking for housing unless you get lucky and find a friend who needs a roommate. And if you want some privacy and a place to call home, you have to commit to something. Plus, if you have a lot of friends in the area, you might not have a problem subleasing it if things fall through. A 10 month lease at that price isn't bad at all other than it's in South Dakota. :-b
