I am soon to finish high school and in need to pick a college(if thats how its called) to go to. Now im having a lot of conflict as to what college i should go to,as it determines what i will do in life.
So im currently finishing engineer high school and “looking” to go to a state engineer college as that way if i am good enough of a student i wont have to pay for it.The reason why im “looking” for a engineer college is cause thats the thing i like the most after modeling and doing art in general (which is my hobby currently).
What i really wanna do as my job,or do in life generally is work in a game industry,or somewhere as a artist/designer to make new worlds and make miracles happen .
Now what i am afraid is that if i go to a engineer college that it will suck all the free time i have (because engineer college is really hard here) and that i will lose focus is my hobby.
And my biggest fear is that i could newer possibly be as good as people who pay a lot to go to a college for 3d graphics or related (vfx studio traning center stuff like that).
So im just asking and desperately wanting a explanation as to do you really need a diploma and to go to a college in order to end up in a game studio or something similar to that?
Is it possible to focus on it even when you are going to a college not related to it? :S
