I'm attending college as a freshman in about a month majoring in graphic arts and design. Now, I'm wondering if this will give me the skills needed to get into the game industry as either a concept artist and/or 3d artist... I had the choice of going to Pittsburgh AI but opted for a 4 yr school for various reasons. As I eagerly await college to begin im just wondering if this is the right choice and it will open up the career path I want.
I would like to hear from experienced people who have landed jobs beforehand, but any comments/advice is appreciated.
