I am a student in computational linguistics at the University of Washington. Before that I was a student in an engineering school in France and I went through a process called "classes pr├ęparatoires" which basically involves 2 years of cramming for a national competitive exam by studying intensely mostly math and physics. I thought that this system was really outdated since the emphasis was on achieving good grades rather than understanding concepts. And the pedagogy could use a lot of improvement in order to foster such qualities as innovation and systemic approaches.
