Think of it as a Darwinian process which I have witnessed across campuses of higher learning everywhere. So you think you love History or English Litt or whatever. Well that will be tested. You will be put through the mill and when we are done it will be seen whether or not anything but the ashes of your passion remain. If nothing but the ashes remain then congratulations, you are ready for academia.
