Which Saxophone for new student?

Single mother bank account- new student in school and I haven't got a clue where to start-I know I don't want to pay monthly interest to Schmitt music so I would like to purchase something good and affordable-what about the e-bay listings-scary or not? HELP!

    does the school have its own instruments? that's what i started on! i'm not an internet shopper, but i wouldn't trust ebay. when you say "new student in school", do you mean you just moved there, or new to playing the saxophone? if the student is new to the saxophone, don't buy a new one because the student may lose interest, then you have a saxophone that sits in the closet for years and hopes to be played someday. i work in a instrument repair store, and i've seen it happen many times. not trying to be gruff or anything...

          the brands: Selmer Yamaha are really good quality, but they're expansive, so i wouldn'r reccomend them for your first sax.
