Graduation rates

Hi everyone!

My roommate from grad school and I were talking last night and she 
mentioned that the completion rate for PhD students in my former 
department is less than 50% (this from a professor within that department 
who is on the graduate education committee).

Is this unusual?

Also is it unusual for a department to pass people on comprehensives and 
then later decide that their  progress toward their degree is 
insufficient and drop them? I was the first casualty in such a purge a 
few years ago and I am just curious.
