I will be attending in the Fall, so I dont know exactly what a first year's schedule looks like, but I remember seeing one somewhere (either online or in the handbook somewhere) and it didn't look too bad. Obviously depends on you section, and I do know that Hofstra has certain times where there are never classes being held during the day. (I apologize again because I don't remember what exactly they are called) but for example, Wednesdays from 11-12 could be this "free time" where there are NEVER classes at that time.
As with every other ABA school they don't recommend a job first year, but I've heard that students do it. I'm personally thinking about working in the library or something where I can hopefully study and get paid.
I am at work now, but when I get home (and if I remember) I will try to locate where I saw that sample schedule and let you know what it looks like or where you can find it.
