    Although Woz did finally get his degree from UC Berkeley, he didn't start his college career there. He also (finally) finished up his degree requirements in 1986 (under a pseudonym) -- a full decade after he cofounded Apple.

    Interestingly, several folks on the infographic didn't end up completing their degrees, though at least one (Bill Gates) got an honorary doctorate from the school they'd attended.
