Top ELEVEN College Dropouts

It took me a winding road, several odd jobs and ten years to finish college. (Much of that time was spent "finding myself," which as you might guess, really thrilled my parents.) I did however, get that degree, but it turns out, that as important as it was to me, it meant very little to some of our most famous citizens.

Time has a list of the top ten college dropouts — and they are in no particular order (because obviously Lady Gaga should be at the top):

Bill Gates

Steve Jobs

Frank Lloyd Wright

Buckminster Fuller

James Cameron

Mark Zuckerberg

Tom Hanks

Harrison Ford

Lady Gaga

Tiger Woods

But there's one name missing from that list! Click here to see our most favorite dropout...and award winning journalist.
