> Java - Getting Directory Returns Wrong Directory

When I run this it will not return the right directory:

public String pullDirectory(){
        String dirString = ".";
        JFileChooser chooser = new JFileChooser();
        chooser.setCurrentDirectory(new java.io.File("."));
        chooser.setDialogTitle("Choose Source Directory");
        if (chooser.showOpenDialog(this) == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION) {
            dirString = chooser.getCurrentDirectory().toString();
        else {
            dirString = "No Selection ";
        return dirString;      

When I do this, the browsing window will open, but if I navigate to something like "C:\Lists" it will return only C:. If I navigate to something like "C:\Users\Bob\Desktop" it will only return "C:\Users\Bob"

I'm a little new to JAVA. How do I fix this?
