I just started a part time evening program. So far I am actually pretty surprised at the work load, considering it is part time. My school makes us take 4 classes, while the full time program has 5 so there doesn't seem to be that much of a difference. It just kind of seems like the school underplays its portrayal of the part time program from what I've experienced so far. Everyone I have spoken to has told me they are not working and do no plan to work, which I find ironic. At the orientation, I believe only a handful of students raised their hands when asked if they were working AT ALL. I actually chose the part time over the full time because I thought it would be just that, a part time program that would make for a much easier transition that is not so "hardcore." Also, I liked the option of working on the side but I don't think that's going to happen now. Maybe it's just because it is 1L?
Have any other evening students experienced this?
