Probably, especially now with the new VEE requirements. My real point was that if you want to make big money (as most people do) as an actuary you should have a well-rounded education, background and personality. Not that you have to be the most outgoing person in the world but the big bucks come from being in front of clients, dealing with management, etc. Not sitting in a back room building Excel models. Don't fall into the trap of thinking that math skills will get you to the higher end of the salary spectrum (if that's your goal...).
You're still young. Basically just enjoy college, have fun, stay up late, take some cool classes and work hard in your actuarial courses and you'll be fine.
