True true. It's just that when reality sets in that it's spirit, cold-feet syndrome occurs ;).
I'm gonna try and find award space. Looking pretty tough.

Anyone else noticing United giving lower prices through their website then other channels?

Looking for some RT tickets to the states, cheapest through ITA, google flights, orbitz all show around 1400-1500, and about 1700-1800 on UA, but when searching on united.com I found fares for <$1200. Seemed odd...

I think only travel agents can make open end tickets.  Often the price is higher than 2 one ways.
I checked matrix and one ways to TLV on your date are quite high.  Watch out for looong stop overs that make the total trip 23 hours.
There are some reasonably priced points seats out there.  Maybe a friend with points can help you out.

I will take a look at both the one way option and the open return option. Has anyone heard of any issues with getting a student visa if using a one way ticket?
