College or Startup?

One of youngest team I ever invested in just decided to take a leave of absence from college (three founders from UPenn, UC Berkeley and Stanford) to work on their internship portal startup Glints. The last college drop out team I invested in Flightcar just raised $13.5m from GGV Capital, General Catalyst, Softbank and First Round Capital. Don’t know what the co-relation is between dropping out of college and succeeding as an entrepreneur, but my intuition is if you and your co-founders believe in your startup enough to drop out of college, your chances of succeeding are just going to be that bit higher.
