How Hard Is It To Be Accepted Into Binghamton University?
I would love to boast that I'm a college-educated person. But the truth is, while I attend college for three years at a two-year college, I never quite finished getting my degree. Radio got in the way, and I have no regrets. Although my father was less than pleased.
