According to this website, the majority of students at the colleges I linked don't graduate in 4 years. Now on facebook, I've been looking up students who attend these universities with supposedly low graduation rates. If the majority of students at these universities take longer than 4 years, then the majority of students should be older than 22 when graduating, but this is what I've been finding. The vast majority of the students I looked up at these universities with low 4-year graduation rates were 21/22 upon graduation. Evidently, facebook isn't the right place to look. Where do I need to look? Are all these statistics saying that most students take longer than 4 years false? What's going on? I'm starting to freak out.
