This one's going out to anyone more in the know than I am...
Do you know if MSIH is still fighting the decision by the US Dept of Education to disallow anyone receiving govt loans to take part in the IHM electives outside the country (i.e Ethiopia, Kenya, Nepal, etc.)?
From the disclaimer on the website, it sounds like they've given up trying to fight it and are now looking into options within Israel and back in the US for students taking out federal loans. If I get accepted for 2011, I'll definitely need federal loans. While working with the Druze or in East Jerusalem still sound like great experiences, I'd love to be able to work in Uganda or Ethiopia. Obviously, this won't sway my decision to attend MSIH, but it'd be nice to have the opportunity.
If anyone has any info on this, it'd be much appreciated!
