In The Trenches

The professor welcomes the new students to graduate school, and explains that this isn't like an undergraduate degree. It's not just seeing the highlights. It's about going in the trenches and getting dirty.

I got the idea for this after visiting a university for their graduate program in physics. The professor said that while undergraduate studies are like seeing the best cathedrals and architecture, graduate studies are like having to build these from scratch with no prior knowledge.
