101 Things I learned in Architecture

Improved design process, not a perfectly realized building, is the most valuable thing you gain from one design studio and take with you to the next.

Design studio instructors, above all else, want their students to develop good process. If an instructor gives a good grade to what appears to you to be a poor project, it is probably because the student has demonstrated good process. Likewise, you may see an apparently good project receive a mediocre grade. Why? Because a project doesn't deserve a good grade if the process that led to it was sloppy, ill-structured, or the result of hit-and-miss good luck.
