I agree with the "finish the course" comments.
If you are sincere about wanting to rejoin, now is a bad time/I am busy stuff...discuss this with your unit. They may be able to help.
There are options, discussing "how long you are busy for" etc with them, they may be able to work around it. Delay your next course, let you train when avail until you can commmit, etc. Different units, and even different COs take different approachs to this. Some understand 'life happens' and will accomodate. YOu could apply for a period of ED & T (exempt Drill and Trg, if that still exists) where you don't go NES if you aren't at trg nights/weekends. In short, there may be options other than release.
Food for thought if you are serious about not wanting to just get out and stay out. Its the Reserves, so you serve under Reserve Terms of Service. You don't get fired if you miss a training night or exercise.
However, if you do get out and seriously plan on rejoining, finish the course and ask about the Supplemental Ready Reserve in your OR/CofC.
