Do drop-outs have an advantage?

Since starting my quest for a new job I've started to notice that the technical interview process often involves some aspect of computer science that I learnt in my first or second year of university.

Twenty years is a long time to stretch my memory back, so I'm going to have to do an online refresher course and / or some reading to keep myself competitive with the recent graduates - where by recent I mean people who have graduated in the last 10 years or so.

Actually, I remember a guy from my class who was getting good grades but decided to leave university without graduating - I think someone in that situation would excel in these technical interviews.
