I got my acceptance on Saturday the 27th of Jan. Of course I am not decided yet, nor do I know if I would relocate to a residence closer to campus, stay in the dorms, or just commute from where I currently live. However, I do know that they have dorms that are specifically for law/grad students, this stuff is on Hofstras website, go read about the new building and other dorm situations.
Best bet would be to live on campus and not have a car. Its cheaper to live on campus, closer obviously, and you can save the expense and hassle of having a car anyway, don't forget that traffic on LI is enough to avoid vehicle transportation if you have that option. They have a bus that runs back and fourth from campus to the local train station where you can catch the train to eastern LI or to Manhattan.
I didn't get much info either, however, as I said before it is all available on thier website.
