Out of a class of 41, 12 are married (at least that I know of - could be more). One is divorced.
Let's just say it's been a few years since I was in high school.

Out of a class of 20 about 15 are engaged or married.

Guys if u want to be more discreet then don't write amount of girls in ur class just write percent that are married. You do the amount that are married x 100 and then divide that number by amount of girls in your class and u have the percent....in case u forgot ur math 😛

Yeah...I don't do math if I don't have to. One of the perks of not being in high school anymore.

Whoa!

We definitely don't want to pass up a statistic like that. If we think that 30% of boys from regular yeshivish high schools are off the derech or very modern a few years later, then that is your shidduch crisis right there.

Oh I definitely think that has wht I do with it! I honesty believe that the rate of boys going off is higher than girls! I cant be 100 percent sure but from comparing my class to my brothers that's definitely a possibility!

which brings us back to the question...how can these companies advertising the shidduch crisis have such exact statistics just by counting heads from graduating high school classes...girls and boys go Israel, some go off some become frummer, some have emotional issues and cant get married...why would they exploit girls like this based on such flimsy statistics? any why do they leave Hashem totally out of the picture making society feel like these 10 percent fate lie in the hands of the boys and whether or not they agree to start shidduchim earlier. its frightening. gedolim are supposedly backing it so there must be some chachma. does anyone know if any gedolim spoke about it openly and encouraged it FOR REAL...?

If you're talking about the infamous ad, they have a list of Gedolim who allegedly support their "idea." It's very unfortunate how many Rabbeim are on the list. However, it's impossible to know for sure whether or not the list is genuine.

I don't have a checklist, but I'm pretty sure about 85-90% of my grade is either engaged or married. Some for the second time around...

Wow! Did anyone else find this fascinating? It seems like some communities aren't having a crisis like cool nerd has 85% to 90% married Basmelech has 75% ithink (whose from Monsey Ithink 😀 ) has 90% bitachon has upper 90's, and then rosepetal who is also a few years out of high school has only 29%.
I'm thinking it depends how far away from New York it is? Is it considered that there is a crisis in New York????

Avigail, I think you may be on to something. I'm not from New York, and the percentage from my school is far different from the others. I wonder....

yup there "supposedly" is a crises in ny, but i guess compared to out of town percent wise they are doing much better but there are more girls hence more single girls in ny
% wise it also depends on the amt of girls in the grade and how many are married
so in ny there are schools that are bigger and others that are smaller. so in a larger grade you could have upper 90% married even though there are 20 girls still single..while in a smaller school there may be less girls ex 30 in the grade and 10 girls single would mean only 67% of the grade is married. so in yes in larger schools and perhaps in ny there are more single girls than in an out of town or smaller school, so percents can be deceiving!
