Do you remember doing those math contest back in school? I did quite a few of them throughout grade school and high school. They were really tough, I never got more then a few of the questions right. Looking back, the pre-university me thought I was pretty smart, but when you get to university, you realize that everyone around is just as smart, if not smarter. It’s a real humbling experience. It also forces you to excel to limits you never thought possible. I think that’s one of the only useful things about going to university. That and all the great people you meet that are just like you.
