It's great to hear that you have an interest in GeekU. While it is structured to be at your own pace, it does require a fair amount of time and research. There are students that are active daily, while others, maybe only once or twice a week. Neither is the "correct" way of going through the training -- it all depends upon the individual.
I will say, though, that the most important thing to consider regarding time is how frequently you are able to respond to the users here on the forum. Once you've reached that point in your training (or graduated), it is very important that you respond in a timely manner. Imagine somebody coming to G2G for help with their infected computer, only to have an expert respond once or twice a week. The last thing we want to do is leave somebody in the lurch because we have other things going on.
That being said, it is very important that you have your life and enjoy it, too. This is why many of the experts are unavailable on the weekends.
Ultimately, going through GeekU is a challenge, but it is very rewarding -- especially when you get the thanks of all the people you help!
Not sure if this helps, but really, only you can decide if you have enough time.

I totally get the seriousness of the commitment. Hope to submit an application provided I can reshuffle my work hours / gain more time.
Thanks again. A-cat
