Fair enough - I'm not disagreeing with you for any specific person. I'm not very smart and if I were to try and do Mechanical Engineering at MIT - I could spend 80 hours per week studying and still fail.
But, in general, the average college student spends more time socializing than in class + studying. And that's not just my opinion - that's from studies:

I was a mechanical engineer (I was a power and energy track with a concentration in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics) that took 7 to 8 classes a semester with about 20-24 credit hours every semester. My lowest semester was 19 credit hours sophomore year. I took a bunch of extra classes in all sorts of subjects until I graduated; aero, auto, materials, civil engineering, physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, math, history. I graduated with over 170 credit hours. Im sorry though no matter how intense school got it was still ridiculously easy compared to the real world and a real job. I look back and think just how fuckin stupid I was every time I ever complained about school(even though I was the one that signed up for all those classes) and now I look at people in college and think how retarded they are for complaining about it, and I promise you, you will too even if you have a relatively low workload.

What school did you attend? I think that the school you attend is extremely relevant to the difficulty of the classes you take.
I'm in aerospace engineering and I can tell you that just taking the five classes I have now (Dynamics, Lin. Algebra/Diff EQ, Thermodynamics, Intro to electrical engineering, and a Propulsion/Orbital mechanics class) are pushing me to my limit.
I know plenty of people in different schools in my state doing Mech E that tell me what they have to cover, and I'm blown away at how easy their school makes some of the course material.

I went to West Point... That propulsion class sounds interesting, I wouldn't have minded taking that, we didn't have that available to us, though I did cover some of it in some of the higher level physics classes I had. oh and fuck electrical engineering it wasn't necessarily hard but damn was it boring. Yeah, I know what you mean though when it comes to class difficulty, I sat in on one of my friends physics classes one time when I was back home visiting for spring break and it was a joke. I couldn't believe people actually paid for it.

Holy shit is my ECE class pointless... The second we got away from DC sources everything gets crazy with complex (imaginary numbers) algebra and converting between polar and cartesian form randomly.
The propulsion class is pretty interesting, though. We mainly covered the station to station analysis of turbojet and turbofan engines, but also looked into ramjets and scramjets.

fuck, I completely forgot about the polar and cartesian conversions though it got better later on when they let you use a calculator to do it. I don't know if you will take a controls class, but the electrical engineering stuff actually comes in really handy when you do and that class is really cool. I do miss working with reaction engines since I never really got a chance to do anything with them after my fluids and aeronautics classes and since Ive gotten out of the army most of my work has been with power plants(which I do really enjoy).
