What is required to become a real estate agent?

I'm thinking of majoring in real estate and had a few questions for this job. What are majors required to become a real estate agent? Are there any colleges that specialize in that major? How about the required degrees? How many years of education will it take? I also live in California to be specific.

You attend classes for 1-3 months at a "licensing" school. When you pass their test, you take the state test. You pay a fee to the state. You interview at realty offices. You choose one. They train you and you go to work. No education required. THink of Bill Gates; he dropped out of school..

Here in California you just take 2 or 3 courses in Real Estate then get some experience and take the test. It's no big thing . When you get the license keep hold of it. It might be valuable some day.

All of what the person above me said and you must sell your soul. When you start making so much money that it becomes addictive, you will lose your head in it.
