WEST POINT MILITARY ACADEMY
It now has 40 majors and its largest enrollment in history.
There are famous dropouts as well. But one, you've heard of Whistler's Mother? Whistlers father has a story. He designed a bridge and drew two children on the bridge. His design was rejected. He was ordered to take them off the bridge. He erased and drew them under the bridge fishing. He was ordered to get rid of those kids. He drew two small tombstones on the banks. They decided he wasn't West Point material.
