    Congrats dude! 2 courses this spring and 4 electives to finish for me. Time flies.

    Though I might have to take opma again lol. Horrible experience with the lady teaching it - http://www.ratemyprofessors.com/Show...sp?tid=1085954. Don’t know who thought it was a good idea have this woman teaching an MBA class. I’ll have to see how the final goes in two weeks.

    Solid work fellas

    What do you guys think if I take full time job and finish my 5 courses (electives) over 2 semesters in the evening? Will I want to kill myself or is it easily managed?

    I wouldn’t call it easy but it can be managed. Depends how demanding the day job is.

    I took 5 courses over winter last year while starting a new job, I was busy but I made it work.

    I personally get quite anxious when the work day starts to stretch into class time so that was the worst part for me.

    2 semesters of it would be hard imo.

    There are some electives that can be taken over a 3 week period, all day Saturday and Friday evenings. I found those way easier to pile on since you know it’s over in a few weeks. Between that and taking a week off each semester for block weeks. It can be done.

    All depends on the electives chosen. First semester I took three evening electives while working and I found it was less demanding than every other semester thus far. I'd suggest 2/2 and then 1 block week (technology commercialization..5 days off yes but it's done all during that week, nothing more than that week of class)

    I did it for several years (pretty much all of my degree) and did not find it difficult. Evening classes are usually a bit easier, and they often end early because the prof wants to get out of there as bad as you do come ~9PM (unless you have one of those students that speaks up even if the class ends 10 min early because they aren't getting their 'money's worth' lol). All my profs were from the UofC.

    You will have less free time (obviously) but the biggest factor will probably be how easy you find school in general. I am the type of person who does everything the night before - whether it is study a final exam, midterm, or do a whole term project and I never had any issues. If you're the type of person who needs a long time to prepare for everything then it becomes a lot more time consuming. Group projects in evening classes are the most annoying, but manageable and hopefully few and far between. If you generally find school easy, I say go for it and it probably won't be bad at all.

    Thanks gents. Will have to think about it some more.

    School sounds like it will be manageable. Just gotta figure out if I want to allocate the majority of my time working for another corporation again!

    To be honest should be easy. I did 8 course this year working full time with a 3 month old and started another company during the semester as well. 8 was a little much and was quite burned out by the end but If your a hard worker its certainly doable.
