Then you get to grad school and learn that you need to try to cram a text book's worth of information into 2 pages and then summerise that into 200 words! It is so evil and wrong that all though our education they teach that more is better, I would write a two page paper that would contain all the information in someone else's 5 page paper and I would get a lower grade, so I learn to do the 5 page version and now they want it down to 1 only! I am not looking forward to when I have to write my first article for publication! Most scientific journals charge by the page so you have to try to get as few pages as possible but still give enough information.
