NU's 2-year JD program

I am interested in this program and would like to know more about this, particularly the admission criteria and job prospect. Is there anyone who can share some inside information? The economy sucks. so really need to be cautious on this huge investment. thanks.

Regarding the main question, I also find this program extremely attractive. What I understood from NU's webpage, the first year you take your normal American Law courses, and on your second year you take electives, thus, when compared to the LLM, in which you have to combine american law and your other courses (which are basically, the same for JD students) in one year, the 2year program stands out, since it gives you the possibility of better job opportunities in the US.

The above is my personal understanding.

but I have a question, the tuition costs aprox 45,000, does this mean that you end up paying 90k for the 2 year period? if so, the investment is heavy and something to consider.
