Law School Dropouts Who Became President

Who says a dropout can't lead the nation? Though 25 of our former and current 44 Commanders in Chief were practicing lawyers at some point before taking office, some others just didn't seal the deal, leaving law school before earning a degree. Business Insider has their stories, from Woodrow Wilson (shown here) to Harry S. Truman, plus one bonus almost-president. Link

I think L.B.J. also dropped out of college (though he went back to finish it a year later).

Fun trivia about L.B.J.: He loved giving people nicknames after his own initials. His wife was "Lady Bird" Johnson, and his two daughters were named Lynda Bird and Luci Baines. He even named his dog "Little Beagle Johnson."
