Any opinions one way or the other?  Some factors to consider:


1.  living expenses
2.  employment possibilities
3.  reputation of the school and students
4.  scholarship money or liklihood

A few posters here revealed that NU has some sections of group-graded legal writing (or some other mandatory class). Penn over NU unless you can save 60K+ by attending NU.

It would be breathtakingly funny if tomorrow Zarqawi started to produce Bin Laden like video tapes.

Any chance his family might be willing to pay me back? I'll put it on his mother's credit report.

The usual approach is to kidnap is mama and send a tape to the uncle. They'll pay up.

Way too much effort for 5 bucks. I do kidnap at $5000+

Managing Director Of Cristal Not Impressed With Rap PatronageBy Nolan Strong
Date: 6/6/2006 2:15 pm



In a special edition of The Economist Magazine, the managing director of Louis Roderer Cristal addressed the popularity of the brand amongst Hip-Hop artists.

In an article titled "Bubbles & Bling" in a special Summer 2006 issue, Frédéric Rouzaud, the managing director of Cristal, stated that the company observes its association with the rap world with "curiosity and serenity."

Despite importing over 50,000 cases of the champagne per year, Rouzaud was less than thrilled at rappers' fondness for the posh drink.


"What can we do?" Rouzaud told The Economist. "We can't forbid people from buying it. I'm sure Dom Perignon or Krug would be delighted to have their business."

The article further labeled the constant Cristal patronage by rappers as "unwelcome attention."

The article contains pictures of Sean "Diddy" Combs, one of the drink's most popular enthusiasts and quotes Jay-Z's No. 1 hit "Hard Knock Life," which name-checked the brand.

According to AmericanBrandstand.com, the pricey champagne was the 8th most mentioned brand on Billboard's Top 100 chart in 2005 with 35 mentions, being promoted by the likes of Kanye West, Trina, Lloyd Banks, The Game, Mariah Carey, and others.


It's time to boycott!
