As an alternative suggestion, consider discovering a second interest that offers financial stability. Models often retire at relatively young ages compared to other careers, many don't receive adequate pay, and they frequently need to search for jobs due to contract-based work. These concerns won't be an issue if you become a successful model, but realistically, it's wise to have a backup job and attend college for it (you can still pursue modeling with a different major)!
Some of the most famous and successful models have super impressive degrees, I remember seeing a StackOverFlow account for a VS model who turned out to have a Software Engineering degree! Formal education is a great opportunity to gain exposure to problem-solving, communication, leadership, and many soft skills besides the obvious academic "hard" skills, and every skill you learn you're going to use. You can pursue modeling with a school lined up, a backup plan is always a good option!
Pursue your dreams and aspirations if that's what truly matters to you! Earning a college degree can be incredibly beneficial, and ultimately, if you choose to explore a different career direction, you'll always have that degree as a solid foundation to rely on!
