What's the most important lesson you learned in college?

Hard work beats talent.

My Philosophy of Religion professor is known for his high standards.

Students literally crying after going through 15 minutes of his oral exam is not unusual.

Schoolmates from older batches say it is impossible to get an A; “You get a B, at most”.

But I was set on getting that perfect score.

Philosophy is my favorite subject and there is no way I am going to settle for mediocrity.

So, I prepared for that oral exam like my life depended on it.
