Former real estate agent files lawsuit, seeking reinstatement of license

Earlier, an administrative law judge had disagreed with the department's conclusions and argued that, since no consumers were harmed by Silverman's actions, the department's penalties were too stiff. But the real estate department upheld the order ...
I'm currently a 19 year old freshman at a college in the US. I've been struggling to figure out what I want to do with my life for the past couple of years, but I recently did some hard thinking and confidently chose to pursue real estate as a career. I really think real estate is the right choice for me and I want to do as much as I can now to further my goal of becoming a real estate agent/realtor.
I realize that you don't need a college degree to become an agent, but I really want to finish my college education and get a degree in economics (and possibly engineering). I think a degree would really help me out in the real world and I could make a lot of connections since the school I go to is huge and one of the more prestigious schools in the US.
I plan on graduating college when I'm ~22 and starting my real estate career right after. I've already looked up online how to become a licensed and practicing real estate agent in my state once I graduate, so I'm not really asking how to do all that. My question is what should I be doing now and in my future college years to prepare myself? Should I be reading up on real estate news? What can I do to prepare myself and get into the mindset of a successful realtor? I live in Northeast America right now but I really want to move to California/New York/Florida and practice real estate in those states once in ready. How difficult would this be?
What should I be doing at this point in time to ready myself for a successful career in real estate? If there's any real estate agents on this sub or someone who can shed some light on this matter I would be grateful. Thank you!
