I am currently in a 13 month 2nd degree accelerated program and am amazed at what I have learned over the past 2 months. I will tell you though that at least five times a day I wonder what it would be like to be in a traditional program. I know most of my classmates do the same. It's not necessarily that we wished we had gone the traditonal route, it's just that we are so busy and so stressed that we always wonder about the greener grass you know.
I do feel like I am learning in the accelerated program, but feel like I could really absorb and apply tons more info if I had more time. This is the most stressed I have ever been in my entire life. With that said, I only have 11 more months to go!! In the end, I think it'll be worth the sacrifice.
I think you need to consider what is most important to you and how well you perform/learn/deal under stress.
Good Luck, I wish you the best!!
