how and when to estimate time and price for a Goal-Directed project


I'm a MSc student with a focus in UCD, IxD, and usability. I have got
the opportunity to work in a web development project as a freelance.
In summary, they just want something new and better.

We have had one meeting and exchanged a few emails. I have spent some
time "auditing" their actual website and looking at potential
problems and what changes would probably be needed in order for them
to better promote their site, entity and services.

It has too many shortcuts in it. I'm trying to group them but mostly

What do you think about possible solution described below?

examples of filtering data based on a series of and/or/not criteria?

If anyone could share good/interesting examples of allowing users to set a
series of boolean logic rules to filter data, I'd be interested in hearing
about them.

I need to assist in the design of something that allows users to filter data
based on about 7-10 of these rules and am concerned that a series of
drop-down menus that long will be cumbersome.
