He did mention in class that you will not need to know how to draw orbitals, but he said it helps to get a general idea of how the orbitals look to clarify certain features of the orbitals. For instance, the principal and orbital angular momentum quantum numbers. If you are a more visual learner, I do not think it will hurt to draw them out if you are stuck on problems regarding that topic.
I have found in the past that drawing orbitals actually helps me understand the orbital levels better than just looking at it quantitatively. But there are others who would not benefit from drawing circles in a chemistry class.
