that sounds like a stupid concept. if they're not going to decrease the credit requirements, their primary goal of reducing the debt burden is undermined. Schools typically charge per credit...90 credits will cost the same whether you get them in two years or three. in the grand scheme of law school debt, how much of a difference is the third year of living expenses?
I'd even bet schools that offer "flexible" programs will take the same approach MBA programs do....Charge twice as much for the working professional version as they do for the "full time student program." It's sick when you think that many MBA programs cost 10 grand/year full time...and 20k/year part time. WTF? $60k to get the same number of credits part time versus $20k to get the same degree full time.
