The Israel flight arrives in the morning, and we visit some sites on the day of arrival. Basically get oriented and see some interesting things. The actual site visits start the following day.

For accessibility purposes, are these walking-intensive trips?
Aaron Packman

Some sites are. But we should be able to make accommodations for nearly every site.

If I want to apply for both springs programs, do I need to write 2 statement of purposes? I’m looking at the application portal right now and I’m a bit confused.

Tomomi — It’s better to write one essay, mainly explain why the international experience will be useful for you, and then provide shorter statements on each individual program.
