The Question Club
My dad doesn't even want me to apply or attend schools that are "too far" from him. My dream school is USC (so cal), and just today, I received more mail from them. My dad just said that "you're not going" and "not to even think about it." Now, this is the man who thinks that Carnegie Melon (in PA) is TOO far away. I live in Jersey. So basically, I'm going to Rutgers in his mind.|
Now, I think I would literally go into deep depression if I go to Rutgers. Now, obviously, if I have no choice (I was rejected from everything else), I'd go. But, to give up my dream for my protective father?
I don't know what to do. He has it set that I'm going to end up at Rutgers. "We'll drive and bring stuff to you." Just before he even bribed me saying that he'd give me how many millions to stay close, and I could spend it for whatever, and after I graduate, I can do anything.
I know Rutger's isn't a bad school, but it's just so much more than that. I believe that if I go to Rutgers, I won't take anything seriously, probably end up partying all night, you know.
I already told my mom that I'm going to USC no matter what if I'm accepted. And she agreed with me.
I just don't know what to do about my dad.
btw, I'm going for Business.
**He probably wants the security that I have to depend on him for money. IE, if I go to Rutgers, get a blah job, and need his money to live?
**He knows or has the impression that once I go to Cali, I'll never come back. He knows that I have the ability for business and that I won't need his money after I do what I do. You know?
