Excellence, Shmexcellence
Oh, on the bright side, I talked to the Excellence Program lady briefly: I still don't know the details, but I did gather that I'm exempt from tuition this year, and that there are "academic benefits". I'll get more details when I visit their office, on Thursday.

Also, I am to be interviewed by Prof. Elia Leibowitz, head of the the department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at TAU, but more relevantly, head of the Excellence program. I have no idea what the interview would be about, but it's a good excuse to get to know the distinguished professor.

Excellence, Shmexcellence?!

No tuition, even for one year is a big deal.
You should be grateful...

Maybe this is connected to the 'interdisciplinary program' [התוכנית הבין-תחומית שהיא תוכנית המצויינות של האוניברסיטה].

What else can I say?
Oh yes --
COOL! :)
Proud of you, as always.

Sure it's a big deal. I could really use the money! And I am grateful. I didn't mean disrespect to the excellence program; I meant some amused reflection of the very vague manner in which I was informed about all this. I still don't know just what it is that I was accepted into (but I was told I am 'accepted'), and how it would affect my studies. We'll just wait and see on Thursday.

And yes, it's the interdisciplinary program, apparently.

I think it means that you get preferred treatment and are assigned a path paving advisor, who will help get you into all the classes you want and help you graduate with the kind of degree you envision.

And if they found you without you making an application, they're doing a good job of it.

Congrats!

פרופ' אליה ליבוביץ' עומד בראש התוכנית החד-תחומית, תוכנית שעקרונית מתקבלים אליה עוד לפני תחילת הלימודים באוניברסיטה, ושמחייבת תואר חד-חוגי
אלא שמשום מה הם מחלקים מלגות, מגדנות, הטבות ותופינים גם לאנשים שלומדים בדו-חוגי, אבל עם ציונים מצוינים מאוד

מקווה שזה מפזר מעט מהערפל

!! מזל טוב, וסחתיין

בהחלט, אם כי המוסולוגים המדקדקים גורסים בדרך כלל מְצוּיָמוּס.

תופינים זה טוב

יפה מצידם! אבל זהו, שאין לי ציונים מצוינים מאוד, דומני. אני חושד שמישהו הלשין.

נו, הכל יתברר מחר.

וואו, עכשיו שאתה מספר על זה אני נזכרת שגם לי הציעו את זה אי שם בשלהי 1996. כמובן שלא ניסיתי אפילו להבחן מפחד שלא אצליח. לא יאומן איך המוח משכיח ממני כל דבר שעלול לפגוע במאמציי לשמור על דימוי עצמי נמוך.

הידד למוס!!!

I should probably join a school of fish then.

I have a friend who is in the program (doing his master now), let me know if you want me to ask him anything.
