How your future will look like as a graduate is a function of how you acted like as an undergraduate. As a student, the picture of your future is in a mirror.

It is your duty to fully customize this picture to suite your taste.
The efficiency of a car is not determined by how the car looks in the exterior. A car would still function even when the side mirrors are broken and the outside begins to rust. But no matter how expensive a car engine may be, it will knock when it lacks oil.
