It's not "that bad." If you're trying to game University before you get into it, you're missing the point of going. You go to university to push yourself to discover ideas and limits you haven't yet discovered about yourself, not to get a grade.By compromising the challenges you take in life, you're setting yourself up for a compromised life. So you go to a crummy university, then get "great" grades. What's your next move, go to a good med school and flunk out? or do you go to a crummy med school too, live your life out as a mediocre doctor that...doesn't do anything of note because they skimmed their way under the hard working ones?
