If you have other interests in addition to flying...it would be smarter to get a non-aviation degree from the college or university of your choice. The airlines do NOT care what your degree is in...just that you can check the box that says you have a BS/BA degree. A non-aviation degree gives you something to fall back on during hard times in the industry or if you lose your medical for some reason. Also, it could help you have a second job at something else you enjoy in addition to flying, as some flying jobs give you a lot of time off. The non-aviation route is cheaper, too, and you can train at any flight school.
