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.
