I don't think my "2 year" (20 months, or 63 credit hours on the quarter
system) MLIS (Univ. of Washington iSchool) from 3 years ago is too out
of date to compare with this current program... and there are still 1
year programs in existence ... I guess my question is, other than
people who take 6 years to get their MLISes because they only take one
class at a time, is there a program that one could say this
"accelerated" one, is more "accelerated" than?
