Thanks for all that info. How is it possible though to still graduate on time if you get put in the transitional program? Do you have to take summer classes. I thought the summer after your 1L year you have to work, so you can find get a job for 2L summer.
The transitional program is designed so that you can graduate on time. Typically, you will take a part-time load during your fall semester, switch to full-time during the winter semester, and make up two classes during the summer semester. You'll be on track to graduate with your class if you decide to switch to full-time after your second semester and take the two summer classes.
Our career service stresses that it is NOT mandatory that you work during the summer after your first year. The Dean and Career Service director suggest that if you are going to take a summer off then summer after first year is the only chance to do so. So, a lot of people do take that opporunity to travel, get married, take classes, or what have you.
