How did you choose your area of study?

I would like to think that I did not choose psychology, rather it chose me. I came into Lake Forest College to be a biology major, attend med school, become a doctor, and so on. Nevertheless, I took Introduction to Psychology, spring semester of my freshmen year with Professor Kelley, and thus psychology became a passion of mine. I knew then that I had to take more courses because this is what I wanted to do from then on. I have taken many psychology courses, but my desire to acquire more knowledge leads me plan to attend graduate school for psychology upon graduating from Lake Forest College.
