PLEASE HELP: What would you do? It's about college and career?

I'm a freshman in college, taking a pre-med course and I didn't choose this for myself, my dad did because he said it has a lot of benefits like I could move to any country I want (even though I don't wanna move to another country) but my mom said I could always transfer in a year if I decide what I really want to be. Now, at first I wanted to be something creative, I love fashion, make up, drawing, sketching... I mean, I got into a good university for advertising arts (which is perfect cause it's business AND art, so I'm not too worried about finding a job) but my dad flipped and made me take a pre-med course or he won't pay my tuition. So, I can't transfer to that university anymore with the advertising arts because they're REALLY tough when it comes to transferees, and I'm not that confident in my current grades. So now, I'm taking a pre-med course and I'm still lost about what I want to do for the rest of my life. When I look at courses offered in other colleges, sometimes I think about just taking business since it's so broad but that's too reckless. My mom said I need more guidance, well I don't know where to get my friggin guidance! So I'm asking here. My options are: A. Just take a business course like Management or something, it so broad! B. Continue with Pre-Med, then Med and become a doctor or forensic scientist or surgeon, something awesome. C. Finish Pre-Med, and take another course that I like (like fashion or something) when I graduate, like get two bachelor degrees I mean, becoming a doctor wasn't really a childhood dream or anything but I think the only reason why that option is there is because, my family has this thing for being academics, like my mom's an Executive Judge, my eldest sister is taking her masters degree in business in Denmark, my other sister who's like a senior in college now studying economics, is going to law school after; and during her HS years she was offered scholarships to Harvard & MIT. So I feel like I have to contribute to our family name or something..

You really need to follow your own dreams because when your parents are gone, it's going to be the career that you choose that defines who you are and what makes you happy. You sound like you're passionate about fashion and if you like marketing, I would look into FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in LA... More

sit with your father when neither of you is stressed, explain to him your desires and misgivings; take a couple aptitude tests first and discuss the results with him

If you have no interest in being a doctor, or doing anything in the medical field, don't do it. It's a waste of time and money. Explain to your dad that you're not interested in that. Don't do a double degree, especially if you don't want to be a doctor. It's really stressful, very costly, and will take a very long... More
