Just bought a 03 Altima at 100000 miles and it just overheated and started skipping when I accelerated. Any ideas on what it might be and how much it might run me

You have to find out why it overheated first. The skipping was due to the heat. No clue on cost, depends on what needs replacing. Figure a couple hundred, but maybe nothing if you just bought it and got a warranty.

I would start with a full cooling system service - hoses, flush, thermostat, new coolant etc. Do check the coolant for oil and the engine oil for coolant and make sure the cooling fans are working.
