Default Are charts, diagrams etc. actually really useful?

I'm in the second year of my Software Engineering degree, and I'm starting to get more than a little annoyed at the amount of seemingly useless stuff that they insist on wasting our time with. So, a question for those of you already out there and working with computers for a living.

How important is it that you be able to create pictures and diagrams that fit the standards perfectly? How often do you actually sit down and creat ER Diagrams, DFD diagrams, Rich Pictures and who knows what else? I can see the point in planning your project, but I'm so sick of working out fragments and chunks and whatevers and putting them into pretty pictures. It's not exactly the most stimulating or difficult of tasks, and yet we've had two subjects on it so far.

Thanks for your help.
