How doable is multiple semesters abroad?

<p>I know it's a bit early for me to be worrying about this since I'm still in high school (rising senior), but I'm trying to plan out study abroad, partially because it's a distraction from planning out college apps, and I'm wondering how many study abroad semesters are manageable? My plan right now is a semester in Israel (spring of my sophomore year), a summer in the West Bank, and a semester in Jordan in the fall so that I could possibly spend the rest of my junior year there if I wanted more time. But would three semesters too long to be away from my home university? Has anyone here done it?
Any advice/opinions would be appreciated :)</p>

<p>Anybody?
To make this a little clearer, I guess I'm deciding whether or not to study abroad in Israel. I don't have any huge desire to go there but I thought since I'm interested in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and I'm hoping to spend time in Palestine, I should be fair to both sides and spend some time in Israel as well. But I'm nervous about not having enough time to become fluent in Arabic, so I'd rather spend a year in Jordan, so I don't know whether I need to choose between the semester in Israel and the second semester in Jordan or whether it would be possible to do 3 semesters abroad.</p>

<p>I don't know if anybody but your school can answer this. I would guess that it'll come down to whether ALL of the credits will transfer and whether they'll be applicable to your major. If they don't transfer, or if you don't get major credit from them, it's probably not possible. I've never heard of somebody doing 3 semesters but I suppose it could be possible.
Studying abroad can also be expensive, especially if you want to travel while you're there, and depending on how often you want to fly home. I personally wouldn't do three semesters and a summer - I did one and it was awesome but enough for me. I missed my friends and my extra-currics back home and I missed being an easy phone call/drive from my family.
But the best thing you can do is talk to your school's study abroad office to find out if it's even possible.</p>
