I haven't thought about the quarter system much recently, but my undergraduate school, my graduate school, and my first tenure track job all used the 10 week quarter system, and I actually prefer it to the 16-week, drawn out semester. I think I can present a lot of information concisely in 10 weeks. More time doesn't actually give you more efficiency with that time, or more depth. Quarters provide more flexibility.
