Ask Get In about Handling Parental Pressure on the Choice of Graduate School
You, not your parents, will have to study for the graduate degree. If you pursue a graduate degree due to external influence, the odds are that you won't enjoy the program or you will struggle through it. In order to avoid this, it is advisable you convince your parents more strategically. We advise that you look at the career destinations of people who studied your desired course. Choose a few successful examples and show your parents the path you want to follow with the course. If this does not convince them, you are left with two options: not attending graduate school or pursuing a course you are not interested in. We advise you to consider both options carefully in line with your long term goals and decide on the best path for you.
