Yes, follow Capt. Joe Richter path and you'll get it.
I've started taking flying lessons at the age of 14 and now i'm 17 and planning to become an airline pilot. The aviation colleges are good, but some pilots require you to save your money and go to an in-state college. Airlines dont really care what major in degree you hold but they recommend....although, you WOULD need a backup degree just in case you can't be fit to fly with the majors. (i.e poor eyesight, bad medical records, etc.) But you can fly with the regionals or corporate with some good flighttime, commercial w/ instrument rating and a 2nd class medical.
Hope this helps...
