The Difference Between Undergraduate and Graduate School

Today during lunch my friend told me that the difference between undergraduate school and graduate school is that in undergraduate school the teachers are responsible both for telling you what you need to know and teaching it to you, but in graduate school they are only responsible for the former.

What do you think?

  1. My experience is that the teachers are not responsible for anything at all. The best grad students are the ones who know what they want to learn and are ready to learn it on their own.

    Same here. Certainly not the ideal though.
    > The best grad students
    Programmers too! ;)

  3. The difference is that there is no way to “teach” the stuff in graduate school, one must “learn” it.

  4. grad school involves research research and more research…Lots of writing and references to back it up.
