A near-perfect score (1590 out of 1600) got Bill Gates into Harvard in 1973. A passion for computers and software and a determination to not miss out on the personal computer revolution prompted him to leave Harvard two years later to start Microsoft. Dropping out was a risk that paid off. Big time. As of May 2018, Gates was worth $91.5 billion, making him the second-richest person in the world.
Gates was also a rule-breaker: In 2016 he revealed that he never attended the Harvard classes he was registered for. Instead, he sat in on random other classes, cramming for his “official” classes just before finals. He nearly always got an A.
Gates finally got his Harvard degree — an honorary one — in 2007.
