Wow - I just finished my first semester and it was...interesting. Academically I did very well and very poorly at the same time. I worked very hard, learned a lot of "new information", found out that teaching is not considered as valuable as research (What?!), and resolved to keep going.
Was anyone else taken "off-guard" by their first semester in a PhD program?
