calgrad- that was like my story. Biology major, they initially wanted me to be a doctor (big surprise) I hated bio, knew my gpa wasn't high enough for med school (not as if I wanted to go there) decided to be a dentist (which they felt was a secondr ate doctor). Decided during organic chemistry that I hated science and bio and wanted to go to law school. Parents flipped out (this was my senior yr) tried to persuade me to take a yr. off after graduating to solely study for the mcat I told them no I would study for the lsat, and I didnt't want to be a doctor. Then they said they would settle for a dentist, I said I hated science. They said they would settle for a phd in bio, repeated I HATE SCIENCE, said they would settle for a masters... anyway until this day my dad is still trying to get me to go to med school, dental school, optometry school, pharmacy school, or anything else health professions related. He's slowly accepting law school, but the other day he said.. why don't you take the lsat again get a 170 and go to a really good school! I was like omg if it were only that easy... NO! He thinks i'm going to be like those guys on tv with those cheesy commercials, I don't know why they are unaware that there is alot of money to be made in law (cuz you know that's all they care about)
Except you'd be a tool and be totally disrepected by your peers. Despite what you say your parents would expect, it's just not done. I work in an office with over 100 attorneys, and NONE of them are called doctor unless they received a PhD in something before or after receiving their J.D.
I am really into world affairs, politics, and law, and they could just care less, they are just bio, bollywood, nihari, and Honda. Whereas I am, flying, sports, and politics. lol I guess I have a genetic mutation or something that has pulled me away from the robotic desi mentality assembly line.
Don't forget the mandatory DDR time! Can't mention Asian stereotypes without that one.
