When I think of my Academic Goals I come to the subtle realization that I do not know or understand nearly as much as I would like to or have envisioned myself knowing. For some reason or another I have a desire to pursue not only a Bachelors degree with a minor but a Associate degree to go along with that.

By doing that I could be receiving my graduate degree concurrently while serving my time or just take the time off. One of my last goals will be to keep a G.P.A of 3.5 or higher in college

With a stronger back ground in Law or Criminology I would be able to help or bring justice to those who are less fortunate.
