How much time does it take up for you? Including classes and work outside of class.

I'm very focused on developing my technical skillsets, and I want to be able to do this while in business school (practice/hone skills for different programming languages, etc).

Bonus points if you go to schulich and can share your experience.

EDIT: Not sure if I have offended people with this question. I'm sorry if I have. I've noticed it has quite a few views with no responses. I really am just curious.

It's up to you. You can learn technical skills (some people create whole start-ups while it school), but just realize it'll come at the expense of something else: grades, recruiting, clubs, social obligations, case competitions, etc. There's more to do than you can possible do, look up FOMO (Fear of missing out). Up to you which you choose to do or not to do.

It really varies based on the person. There's enough work to keep you busy more than full-time. Of course that depends on a lot of factors like: how hard you work, how easily the material comes to you, what grades you want to achieve, and your team members.

In my experience, the first year was significantly more rigorous than the second year. First year we had 5 class each quarter - where we spent about 3 hours of class time per week in each class. Plus at least 4 hours of work outside class. On top of that we had interview prep, resume building and spent a significant amount of time looking for internships, going to career fairs, etc...

Second year was significantly more relaxed. We only had 3 classes per quarter. And for those who had converted their internship into a job offer or had landed a job early, all the pressure of the job search was gone as well, which freed up a significant amount of time for them. Second year was when I saw classmates begin to start their own companies. You'll probably have time to improve your technical skills at that point.
