10 Nobel Prize Winners Who Are Actually Dropouts

It doesn't take a genius to see a pattern in the correlation between a good education and professional success. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, and sometimes even a genius can choose not to get that education and still reach the top of their chosen field.

Take these ten highly successful individuals. All of them were recognized with Nobel Prizes, and all of them dropped out of school.

Their reasons varied: some were too poor, some were too bored, some were too unlucky. Yet all overcame an educational deficit and made a difference.

It’s worth noting that out of the ten Nobel Laureates to look at, two were for Peace, one for Chemistry, one for Physics, and the rest were for Literature. Apparently you don’t need no good edumacation to be writing swell.
