No, he isn't. Every single person I know that is a college freshman was born in 1995. Doesn't matter how old they are during the year, just matters what year they were born.
Let's do some math here:
Notice that the VAST majority of states require that an individual be 5 years old before September 1st in order to enroll in Kindergarten.
This means that all of the following ages correspond:
- Age 5 before Kindergarten
- Age 6 before 1st Grade
- Age 7 before 2nd Grade
- Age 8 before 3rd Grade
- Age 9 before 4th Grade
- Age 10 before 5th Grade
- Age 11 before 6th Grade
- Age 12 before 7th Grade
- Age 13 before 8th Grade
- Age 14 before 9th Grade
- Age 15 before 10th Grade
- Age 16 before 11th Grade
- Age 17 before 12th Grade
- Age 18 before Freshman year of college
As of September 1st 2013 (Current Academic Year), an individual who has turned 18 was either born between January 1st and August 31st of 1995, or September 2nd and December 31st of 1994.
This means that roughly ONE THIRD of College Freshmen are born in 1994.
It's not so much the misinformation in your post that's the problem. It's that you blatantly insult other people who are correctly informed based on some misunderstanding you seem to have, along with some degree of small-mindedness.
It doesn't matter in the slightest that you know a bunch of freshman that were born in 1995. Statistically, 2/3rds of them should be.
When you state that all freshmen are born in 1995, you're not simply wrong by opinion. You're just wrong period. You can't take 1/3rd of the entire freshmen body across the country and pretend that they weren't born in 1994.
