To accomplish this he hacked into Harvard's database and took names and photos of all the students. In fact, he was quite thrilled about his selection in the Ivy League College.

Mark Zuckerberg recently shared a throwback video of when he got his acceptance mail from Harvard University.

Assuming Barca win Sunday, Madrid needs at least a draw against Malaga to win the league title. This is a hard place to come and it was a tough game.

"Are you serious?" his father Edward Zuckerberg asks. Zuckerberg clicks on the mail from Harvard and lets out an unenthusiastic "Yay", before he says to his dad, "I got accepted". Sure enough, Zuckerberg went on to drop out of Harvard to focus on Facebook, which went on to become the most popular social media platform on the planet. But that changes next week when he is scheduled to speak at Harvard's commencement and where he said he will receive his degree. The 33-year-old will return to his one-time alma mater this summer to deliver the commencement address at the convocation ceremony.

Responding to a comment a fan had posted on his video, he added: "Before I went to college, my mum bet me I'd drop out and my younger sister bet me she'd finish college before me. I bet them I'd get a degree", Zuckerberg writes. "Now I suppose the cycle is complete", he posted.
