I have D who is a freshman at High School. She doesn’t want to do science/Engineering/CS. She really likes current affairs, politics, History and Law. She is a good student but not comfortable speaking in public. So she didn’t really enjoy Model UN (she tried in the 1st sem) and would like to try Mock Trial next year. She is currently doing online school and probably in-person next year. She is very much confused and says she wants to do Law. I know it’s tough and I heard Law is useless unless you graduate with Law degree from top 20 colleges. I am sure it’s not easy to get into those colleges as she doesn’t have leadership skills and not super motivated. She is very slow and steady person but works if she has to do something. I hope she will learn once she starts college if she knows what to do eventually.
We’re trying to do some research and give her some choices. Our goal is that she should enjoy her college life, do what she enjoys and also settle down in a decent job. We both are in IT and older D is planning to do Medicine (it’s too early as she she will be starting her undergrad this year).
We think with political science major she cannot really do much if she cannot go to Law school or can get into politics (I know it’s not easy but she really likes politics).
I really appreciate any suggestions for the major (to get some rough idea and best/decent colleges? I don’t know if she likes LAC. I am looking for some ideas where she can really explore once she gets into colleges and grow from there.
