"Most definitely. I started a PhD program in Sociology and discovered almost immediately that I was in the wrong place given my passions and professional interests, so I decided that Public Health was a better fit for my graduate studies. To make the switch, I had to revoke a 5-year full ride scholarship and give up my ideal apartment to move back home to save money. To say they were highly disappointed would be an understatement. They didn't know what public health was and were concerned that I wasn't making the right decision. Following their expectations for me and what I thought would make me happy is how I landed in the wrong program in the first place. Over time, they definitely came around, but much of my indecision and educational pursuits thus far had followed their expectations for me."
