I'm on the waitlist for full-time currently at AU and a few other schools.
It takes two summers of classes even if switch PT to FT at AU. They have the lightest semester credit-load of any PT program in DC (19 credits). I have heard of PTers doing a summer abroad as a way to catch-up on credits quickly (programs are typically 6 credits).
From the AU site:
If you wish to accelerate the program to graduate in fewer than four years, you may transfer to full time status during the fall semester of the second year. This action requires the written permission of the dean of students and is only approved with the understanding that you complete the second year required courses in the evening section. However, you are permitted to enroll in elective courses such that the total number of enrolled hours is at least twelve, which is the minimum for full time status. To graduate within three years, you must complete two summer sessions. Summer classes are offered during the evening only. You may also opt to participate in a summer study abroad program. Any student contemplating such changes in division must conform with ABA and Washington College of Law residency requirements as set out in a special policy statement available from the dean of students.
