FAMOUS BOSTON-AREA DROPOUTS
Singer Gavin DeGraw bounced from Ithaca College to Berklee, but left the music school after just one year. DeGraw decided to leave school because he was scared he would “become knowledgeable about what felt good, that the knowledge would get in the way of [his] heart,” according to his website.
