I'd guess that the numbers are lower because in the past, more people wanted to do full time then part time. I know I'd never choose to do part time. Now, though, ITE, people are less willing to stop working and people would rather go to a part time program at a higher ranked school than a full time program at a lower ranked.

+1. Although, a lot of people use PT as an admissions backdoor and transfer to FT after 1L and 1 or 2 summer classes. So they would do 2L OCI with the FT class as well.

Most schools simply allow you to do it after the first year.

With high enough grades. Important factor to remember, especially if you're planning on fitting full time work and/or family into that equation. You usually need upwards of a 3.0.

Hmmm I don't know if this is true. Maybe it varies by school.

I don't know about that. From what I've heard, anyone can switch to FT at GULC and GWU, as long as you passed your classes.
