well this is true, but 50% of the reasoning behind it is kids go in , just do the bare minimum to pass and don't challenge themselves along the way, just like most jobs, unless you study and pursue your dream/goal outside of class you won't get much more than the other person making you just like the rest. At my uni, there are groups for this and really hit it hard and great at it too.
We have an open student lobby w/ over 75 workstations, and at least 11 CintiQ's , all high end, as well as Mac and linux. Students are out there either creating characters, items, games, designs, daily, they're passionate about it. Blizzard and other companies often come out, if you study and learn the work, and follow the right steps to your portfolio and design, there are tons of companies that will take you, it's just one of those industries that you really have to earn your share in, by challenging and pacing as you go up, over time it pays off, it just has a really slow start for some.
Hence IT for me as it was my hobby now profession, I'll use the money later to go back to school for it
I was really impressed when one of our professors who had been in the security industry for 20+ years and runs his own company for pen testing/risk management (7+ figures ) was coming back to attend for game design / programming. He wants to integrate Security w/ it which was another concept I had as well.

Technically since noone can find the OP, it's fair game
