    What do I think? I'd get the contract first and then go for it. Life's too
    short. If I've learned one lesson in my's that the school thinks
    of itself first before you (and where's the ethics in THAT?) so why
    shouldn't YOU do the same thing? Your ultimate friend is yourself so be kind
    to this person. Toodles......
