As for me, I crammed a lot in undergrad. Once you get into the big boy leagues, you have to study daily, and develop new ways of staying actively engaged (like the ones you described). That will help you if you ever start thinking about grad school.
I've got to go to grad school. Be it phd or masters, haven't made up my mind yet.
