That’s true. But it’s amazing how many of the 99% think they are in the 1%.
When a kid is a Junior in HS, they don't necessarily know if they are the 99% or 1%. I know some kids who I could see if a few things went right, that they'd make it to the next level, but I'd still put the odds (in my brain, so take this with a grain of salt) as low. Also, there are some kids who are in it for the baseball more than the academics. They may end up getting a degree out of it, but that is secondary to them. When I ask one kid how his academics are going, he simply replies that he is in it for the baseball.
