Warren Buffett, known these days as the "Oracle of Omaha" and one of the most successful investors of all time, describes his experience applying to Harvard, the school of his dreams, as a very young man.

"I looked about 16 and emotionally was about 9. I spent 10 minutes with the Harvard alumnus who was doing the interview, and he assessed my capabilities and turned me down."

He was informed that Harvard’s mission was to make leaders and that he wasn’t ready to be one.
