Dead Boston Marathon Bombing Suspect Didn’t Take to Accounting

He only went for three semesters — fall 2006, spring 2007, and fall 2008 — and dropped out as he became more religious, according to the Wall Street Journal. He wasn't a drinker, so I'm sure he wouldn't have fit in but still, if he had finished his studies, his uncle probably wouldn't have thought he was such a loser[AP, WSJ, DI, Bloomberg]
