Majors, Regionals, and 4 year degre

So basically, as someone without a 4 year degree I’m trying to find the best approach to ensure that becoming a pilot is my final career choice, and one that pays well. What is the pay difference between regionals and majors? Would I be better off pursuing a 4 year degree before going to ATP or is it plausible to go to school while flying for a regional or as an instructor for ATP?
