School He Left: Reed College
Steve Jobs attended one semester at Reed College and dropped out so he could take "more interesting" classes. Apple was incorporated in 1977.
Jobs gave this career advice to entrepreneurs at the D5 Conference: "If you really look at the ones that ended up, you know, being 'successful' in the eyes of society and the ones that didn't, oftentimes, the ones who were successful loved what they did, so they could persevere when it got really tough."
