It taught me concepts, but not how to apply them, it taught me algorithms, but not why they were important in a specific case, it taught me to break down problems, but not solve them and follow the solution out the door.

What I’m trying to say is, they didn’t teach us to apply ourselves to a workforce, but rather an academic one.
