Am I the only one who's bothered by a school that changes part-time to full-time in the winter, to up their numbers? Seems pretty unethical to me.

The sole purpose of the transitional program at The University of Toledo is not to up our numbers. It may have an effect on the U.S. News Ranking, however, that is not the main purpose of our program. The transitional program is really there to help students who may face more difficulties adjusting to the work load ease into law school by giving them fewer classes but also allowing them to graduate on time. As a current student, I have seen how beneficial the program is to those individual in it and support it whole wholeheartedly. So, no, I do not think it is unethical for our school to give this opportunity to students that qualify for it.
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.
