Going to College: what are the chances?

The NY Times answers it today (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/05/28/upshot/you-draw-it-how-family-income-affects-childrens-college-chances.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&module=second-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news ).  It seems they have done a simple linear regression of percentile of income vs. college attendance ( not graduation).  You can go to the site and guess the relationship (spoiler alert: below is how I guessed in purple against the actual in grey).  It seems I did better than 95% but most were still similar to mine.
