A person who drops out of school.
This can refer to college, university, or highschool.

Most people think that dropping out of school is bad. This is a very common misconception. Dropping out of school is only bad if you want to get a JOB. If you dont want to get a job, and have other ambitions besides a job, then dropping out is actually a pretty smart thing to do since you can stop wasting time going to school.

Generally, there are two types of dropouts.
Type #1 is the dropout with no ambitions whatsoever
Type #2 is the dropout who wants to be or do something

An example of #1 can be a 35-year-old working at McDonalds as a Janitor

An example of #2 can be Tupac Shakur

An active gang member who willingly leaves his gang. Or does something that a true gang member wouldn’t do (snitching, stealing from a fellow member, not paying dues, or upon arrival to jail you don’t house with your gang but go into a protective custody Unit (rolling it up)) these instances will differ as different gangs have different morals and motives.

A person that didn't complete school for two reasons:

1) Their lives outside of school were so incredibly difficult that they really had no other choice

2) Laziness
Jack lived with his mom and little sister. His mom was a very immature parent and went out and got drunk every night and would sometimes never even come home. This forced Jack to get little Sally ready for Kindergarden everyday, forcing him to constantly be late for school until he eventually had no choice but to become a drop-out to care for Sally.

Hannah, on the other hand, got a job at Pizza Hutt and felt like she was making some massive "dough" so she dropped out of high school to just work and get more money, unaware that without a diploma, Pizza Hutt's where she's gonna stay forever.

Poker game where 5 cards are dealt to each player. Each player drops one card after the flop, one card after the turn, and one card after the river leaving two cards left in the player's hand. Like Texas Hold'Em a round of betting occurs before the flop, after the flop, after the turn, and after the river. The player MUST use both remaining hole cards with the addition of three community cards.
The community cards are KING, KING, JACK, JACK, ACE

Player 1 has a KING, FOUR

Player 2 has a KING, TEN

The players have properly played Dropout and are left with two cards, however
it is NOT a split pot because both players MUST use both hole cards to complete the best 5 card hand, so Player 2 wins with Three Kings, Ace, and 10 kicker.
