I took the opportunity to work in the music industry and am glad I did. I followed others though that did it in a smart way. The musicians I worked for, some now very famous, all were 100% dedicated to music and their music careers, but they made sure to get their degrees and take life outside of music seriously. They had fun, had many late nights in bars, clubs, frat houses, etc...but they made sure to go to school or their jobs when they had to. It's possible to treat music like a business and still feel fulfilled and creative. You might not have the material possessions that your friends have when they start to get their first corporate jobs, but trust me..they will envy you and what you are doing. Will it take more than 10 years? Sure..for some it has, but how many people start their lives after 28-30yo these days..a lot! If music doesn't work, at least you will have your degree and a lot of life experience to know what you might want or might not want to do.
