I don't like this transitional thing one bit. It basically forces you out of getting a summer associate position after your first year. Instead, we are stuck taking classes over the summer. Anyone else think that this transitional program could end up messing up future chances at employment? I can't imagine sitting in front of a potential employer after my 2nd year, and when he asks what I did during my first summer, I'd have to say "I needed to take classes to get caught up!"If I told Toledo I don't want to be in their transitional program - and I'd accept an offer to a full-time schedule, do you think they would give in?
You take 2 classes in the summer, so you could easily volunteer somewhere for a few hours a week to have something to put down on your resume.
