Usually the ones that go to prom are
1. Steady couples
2. The popular girls dating the popular guys
3. Horny creepy looking guys looking to get laid
4. A few, not too many, random couples that just want to go
5. A few people that just can't get a date but still go just to "say you been there." Usually are a little chubby, gay, or socially inept.

To business: a corporate-controlled/ promoted high school "institution" that makes the dress shops, hairdressers, flowershops, limo companies, suit rental places, etc more wealthy.
To the students who don't get to go: a lifelong regret, an occasion that fat chicks can not get a date for.Makes more people unhappy than any one other thing in highschool...

1. parental-advised prostitution
2. one of America's shining examples of the double-standard, where teenage boys and girls are expected to be wholesome and whores/players at the same time.
PROBABILITY: It will end poorly.
