Watch Mark Zuckerberg find out he got accepted into Harvard

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is preparing to give the commencement speech next week at his alma mater Harvard.

Founder & CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg took to his Instagram page yesterday to share a amusing throwback video recorded by his dad of when he first got accepted into Harvard as a teenager. Originally, Zuckerberg was set to graduate from the university in 2006, but dropped out to start his now multi-billion dollar social media company. "Next week I'm going back for commencement to get my degree", the 33-year-old billionaire wrote as a caption.

Sitting at his computer screen,"Yay". Zuckerberg clicks on the mail from Harvard and lets out an unenthusiastic "Yay", before he says to his dad, "I got accepted".

His father then chimes in with a bit more excitement.

"That was definitely not my plan", he said. "Before I went to college, my mom bet me I'd drop out and my younger sister bet me she'd finish college before me".
