CC’s fast-track LPC adds to two-tier fears
It surely isn't a matter of killing oneself to complete the LPC in 7 months, nor necessarily having to start work earlier.
When I did the LPC, frankly there wasn't 6 months worth of work in the syllabus, so 7 months still leaves plenty of time to be a student. And even when I did it, we started in Sept/Oct and were finished by May or so; hardly a drastic reduction in total time devoted now.
As for starting work, most firms (certainly the MC ones) offer a range of dates to start. So, if anything, the 7 month LPC offers an opportunity either to start work quicker (which would have suited me given I'd done my travelling and frankly wanted to start earning some money) or to have more, rather than less, time off before doing so.
On any view, spending 8 or 9 months to cover what needs to take far less time, is a waste of time, which could be better spent - it's up to you whether you spend it at work or on a beach.
