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.

In addition to yesterday's surprising approaches by the excellence program, when I turned on (hello, reneighssance :)) my sillyfone after a day on campus, I got a voice message from the dean's secretary, asking me to call the office back. Like the excellence lady, she did not give out any details. Curiouser and curiouser, I say! (hello, ygurvitz :))

Maybe it's something in the air, maybe it's the changing seasons (rained a bit today, at long last!), maybe it's mating season, but let me tell ya: TAU has got the hots for me!

Should I play hard to get?
