In the end, it's mostly a numbers game. Take the time you would have used joining silly clubs and study more for the LSAT.

This sounds like a terrible idea. The debt difference is insignificant and CUNY isn't going to get you any more leverage for public interest jobs than CU. Also, with the cost of living difference, I'm not convinced you would even save much.

During the totality of my legal career, I have read ... let me think ... ZERO law review articles for professional purposes. I'll occasionally read an article for personal interest and amusement, but professionally? They are completely irrelevant, at least to my practice.
Some practice areas are more into them. As a tax lawyer, I read law review or other journal articles on a daily basis. That said, we tend to focus more on professional journals like Tax Notes as opposed to student edited law reviews.
My experience is that they treat people who checked "both" as FT students. If you don't care about whether you go FT/PT and just want to get in, check "PT" unless your numbers make you a likely admit for FT.

I worked 9-4 (slightly less than full time), class was either 5:30-8:00, or on two nights a week until 9:30 (with legal writing class). Then, usually an hour or two after class. I did most of my study on weekends, with a full 9-5 work day on class assignments.
Papers and length will depend on the school. Most of the work is study- that means reading, reviewing. Most part time students don't have time to brief- it's mostly a waste of time anyways.
Basically, you should expect to spend every waking hour you are not at work or commuting doing class work.
