has anyone had the experience of dealing with "whiny" classmates? i have no qualms about age difference and the different backgrounds/levels of experience. my issue is mostly with the lack of preparation for doctoral level work or just knowing then to bite the bullet and get things done. i hear so often "omg, that's so much reading"..."omg i can't believe we have 10 pgs to write". i know there is a healthy level of complaining, but i am just shocked at how little work people want at times.
