I did something like that a few years ago when I was in school. Actually, it was the week b4 finals, and I worked a nice shift...
11:00am to 4:45am -worked (17+ hours, no meaningful break.)
5:00am to 6:15am -slept/quick shower
6:45am to 3:30pm -worked (I think I had a 30min lunch)
4:00pm to 8:00pm -slept
8:15pm to 1:00am -worked
1:00am to ????? -out cold.
Not too shabby. I will never forget that shift for the rest of my life. I ended up getting really sick after that weekend which made my finals really enjoyable. May good health be with you!

The job was pretty lame too. I was working for a company that did sound, lighting, and staging for concerts etc. We had a bunch of ppl with the flu and 7 shows to set up for and tear down. What a pain in the arse.
Ironically, the job after that was at the U of M med school. Fortunately I was just a software developer so I worked reletively normal hours...
