Am I obligated to be claimed as a dependent on my parents taxes? 1 Answers as of February 27, 2011

I am a full time college student who was planning on filing independently on my taxes for the first time this year. My parents were informed by their tax woman that they are legally required to claim me as a dependent because of my full time student status. Is this true? Am I lawfully obligated to be claimed as a dependent on their taxes, even though I am financially independent from them?
