I wish it was just drugs or alcohol or armed robbery or whatever anything but this!

My DD high school student wants to be a Dr. Sounds great, right? The problem is that her grades are hideous to the extent that when she actually passes something or turns something in, we are joyous. She does have an LD which we have been working with but her not trying for whatever reason is driving me batty. Do I nag her? No. That gets nowhere and just makes the angst worse and gives her something (like me) to rebel against. She does not conform to any school rules she isn't in on so she ends up getting punished at school which we just watch in amazement that she would rather take the punishment than do what she needs to do. I don't get this wanting to be a doctor accompanied by blowing off her school work. Any insight?
