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
