Paul Allen (Education)

Co-Founder Of Microsoft

Much like his Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Paul Allen is another famous college dropout. After scoring a perfect 1600 on his SATs, Allen enrolled at Washington State University where he was a member of the Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. However, Allen quickly dropped out to work as a programmer for Honeywell in Boston. Allen later convinced Bill Gates to drop out of college after Gates enrolled at Harvard.
