Displaced students have a chance to study this semester in Israel. From Volokh.com’s David Bernstein:
Opportunity for Katrina-Affected Students to Study in Israel: Some details here. Several universities in Israel have English-language programs for foreign students. I thought this was worth pointing out because the Fall semester in Israel doesn’t start until after the Jewish holidays end in late October, giving affected students the opportunity to reorganize their lives a bit, without delaying their academic careers.
