I was like you: artsy. I really wanted to go to straight art school but my parents convinced me to go to architecture. Another one of my passions was education. The bottom line is that I ended up working with education and art most of my life despite my degree in Architecture. If money is not important to you, follow your passion. If it is, then you might want to follow your parents advice and go to pre-med. By the way, my daughter has the same dilemma between pre-med and music and I told her to follow her passion for music but I know she doesn;t care about money.
