It was always engraved in my head that a college degree was necessary for success in the working world.  I remember sitting in the Fredonia State library, reading the walls and wondering if I would be able to finish in four years time.  This was a must in my families eyes and thanks to a lot of hard work, I did it.  Hearing my name being called and receiving that degree was one of the happiest days of my life.  Although I must admit, it was much more simple to be a student than an adult.

Men's Health compiled a list of the 'Most Successful College Dropouts of All Time.'  Here is a partial list of the 'bottom of the class:'  Actors: George Clooney, Woody Allen, Tom Hanks, Sanda Bullock, James Cameron, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.

Did they have to work extra hard for their fame and fortune or was it being in the right place at the right time?  I'll let you decide.
