Unhappy rusted exhaust

Hello all. I was replacing my muffler today on my 95 civic ex and i found a spot right behind the catalytic converter where it has rusted through. The real pisser is that I'm leaving for college tomorrow and I'll have to leave the car home and have my parents bring it to the shop. I'll post some pics and see what you guys have to say. I'm not really sure exactly what I should replace so I don't know how much it'll cost. I'm on a pretty tight budget since I need money for spending at college.

Just buy a cat back exhaust system. It will replace everything from behind the cat to the back of the car. I would suggest an Apexi WS2 system, but they can be a bit pricey. A company called "Yonaka" makes a knock off version for much cheaper and isn't too bad from what I have heard.

Thanks for the suggestions! Quick update: I just got moved into college and had to leave the car home. My parents are going to take it to a mechanic who is a long time family friend of ours this week. I'm not sure what exhaust system I'll end up going with.

Any updates? Kinda interested to see what the mechanic charges for install and what exhaust kit you went with.

Well I ended up not needing a whole new exhaust kit, from the sound of it he was able to just replace the one pipe. I'm going home for the 3 day weekend so I'll find out more then. I'm not sure exactly how much he's charging, I'll let you know when I find that out. Hopefully it's all ready for me to drive back to college on monday night!
