When you start in fall, you will have summers off. Spring is all year round. I would have preferred all year round. Having four months off for summer really makes it hard returning and skills become a bit "rusty".
Not yet. I'll be applying this Spring for a Fall start (hopefully). Normally, I'd like to go year round and get it out of the way, but this is a busy couple of Summers with my kids. I'd have to miss a lot with them if I had clinicals in the Summer. So on a personal level this works out great. Proffessionally, it'll be a bit tricky, but it's worth it to me. Thanks so much for your replies. This message board is such a valuable source of information.
