from NY TIMES:
ny times unpaid internships

Convinced that many unpaid internships violate minimum wage laws, officials in Oregon, California and other states have begun investigations and fined employers. Last year, M. Patricia Smith, then New York’s labor commissioner, ordered investigations into several firms’ internships. Now, as the federal Labor Department’s top law enforcement official, she and the wage and hour division are stepping up enforcement nationwide.
 
Hi Andy,
I am thinking of getting a part-time internship while attending CMU (NYC) campus or/and internship during winter break. Since I am a fresh graduate, I'd like to focusing more on learning about the field and building up my resume, money is not a big deal yet.
Do you think it is possible? Any recommendations on that?
Thanks,
 
1) Would you be able to obtain part-time internship?
2) Would you have time to study?

Even if the answer to 1) is yes, I would not recommend it. My experience is that MFE study is something you should dedicate all your available time to while you in school. Internship is what summer for. You would realize very quickly that you don't even have enough time to study, let alone working.
