"90%. Really. I'm at a loss for words."
Most CC students are non-traditional. They are adults who have been out of school for some time. When I went to CC, I would say at least 50% of my classmates were 30+. I'm willing to guess that on a cold test after walking in the day they decided to change their life's direction, they failed the test in droves.
Yes, some of them are recent high-school grads, but not most.
