    I am in a similar situation where I am very comfortable in Sketch and feel out of place in Adobe products. In a class I'm taking "Layout & Typography" the instructor uses Illustrator and bases his classes/assignments around trying to get students familiar with the Illustrator workflow. I expected to be completely hindered by this software but Im actually blown away.

    There are some features which do not even come close to existing in the Sketch world and would require me to spend a lot of time to achieve the same in Sketch. For example, my latest project is a brochure which has three panels of text. Illustrator lets you "connect" these things so they overflow onto the next panel.

    I actually recommend you spend the time to learn it. As you carry on in Design school, you will definitely come across assignments/projects that depend on certain features of Photoshop and Illustrator. I suggest you start learning from right now, so you don't fall behind.
