I am not sure how taking that many weeks off also does not make it easier, it might make for a smoother transition but at the end of the day it is about getting more numbers through and I am betting someone crunched the numbers on that and figured they would get so many more guys through per year by doing that, the same way they crunched the numbers on winter hell weeks.
You might want to get specific with your instructor friends. Ask them to think about all the guys they thought slipped through the cracks that also made it to graduation. I bet there will not be very many.
