I will add one more thing. I personally found graduate school to be fun because I am the type of person who likes challenges. I though undergrad work was too structured and didn't really encourage independent thinking like you find in the real world. There was much more research and longer papers, but that is just part of furthering your education. There would be no point in grad school if you did the same level of work as an undergrad. Best of luck in your future education.

I'm in year two of grad school and I don't find it any more difficult than undergrad. I agree with other posters that there's a ton more reading and a ton more writing. We also do a lot of presentations, and in my case, a lot of groupwork. That was probably the toughest adjustment because I very much so prefer to work alone.

It takes so much of your time, though, that it flies by. I'll graduate in the spring and that's just hard to believe!
