8 9 Famous Harvard Dropouts…
(The title says 8 but, it didn’t take my non-Harvard degree to count up to 9)
1. Robert Frost
“They could not make a student of me here, but they gave it their best,” Frost later said. Frost won four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry in his lifetime and received an honorary degree from Harvard in 1937.
2. Matt Damon
Entered Harvard in 1988– exited for good two years later.
“What was happening is that I would keep coming back, and I would almost get done with the semester and then I would be yanked out,” Damon recalled in an interview with the Harvard Crimson.
“I feel like I got everything I needed to get from that experience,” he said on Ellen.
3. Edwin H. Land
In 1937, Land co-founded the Polaroid Corporation, which would introduce the first instant camera in 1947.
4. William Randolph Hearst
Hearst was expelled for sending his professors chamber pots with their names inscribed on the bottom.
5. James B. Connolly
Connolly, who was admitted to Harvard in 1895 despite never graduating high school,
He became became the first modern Olympic champion with a win in the triple jump.
6. Pete Seeger
Apparently, his financial aid was rescinded after his sophomore.
7. R. Buckminster Fuller
He achieved fortune and fame in 1947 with the invention of the geodesic dome.
8. Bonnie Raitt
Raitt took a semester off during her sophomore year to explore the possibility of a musical career and was signed a recording deal.
9. Elisabeth Shue
Dropped out of school one semester short of receiving her political science degree in 1985 to pursue an acting career.
“My brain was starting to dry up,” Shue told Movieline magazine. “In Hollywood, you’re fortunate if you get a role where your brain is engaged, but those experiences are rare. I felt like I needed to do something with my life. I wanted to feel more connected to the world.”
She was nominated for her role in “Leaving Las Vegas.”

Just to tick me off….
Q.2- Should we spend all of our million dollar win right now or save it for a rainy day which may never happen?
I’d probably do both.
Q.3- Is it really funny when people send in videos to TV shows of themselves getting hurt in order to win the TV shows funniest video award? Are these videos even funny to you?
No. They are stupid.
