Welcome to WebmasterWorld
There is an Google Adsense forum, you might want to post this question there... Anyway, if you can maintain a $18.27 eCPM, you'll hit $100,000 with that kind of traffic. With 1 click in 30 page views, you'll need to average around $0.55 per click, which can happen.
Uniques are usually counted each day. Best of luck to you.
Will 15,000 hits a day get me to a $100,000/yr?
Think $0.01 per visitor ("a penny a pop") as a very rough estimate.
15,000 visitors per day = $150 per day = $54,750 per year
You will make less if you have less visitors, i.e. if your visitors are seeing more than one page per visit.

30k pageviews-a-day (which are 'hits' and not 'visits') giving $3000-a-day to a publisher
Assuming an incredible 20% CTR that would mean an average EPC of USD 0.50.
Check through the threads here and you'll find very few with an EPC at that average let alone the 20% CTR.
15,000 visitors per day = $150 per day
This is also assuming you make a penny per visitor; some of us have topics that need 10x more visitors to make that money.
This was from an informal consensus survey here a few months ago with the top level being about USD 0.02 per visitor it would still only be USD 300 per day IF the OP is referring unique visitors.
Depending on the topic, it is quite possible to make $18.27 eCPM. It's against the Adsense TOS to talk about our eCPMs, but many here break the rules and brag about eCPMs. I've seen people talk about these values in the $30 range and I believe it.
1 in every 30 people click an ad...
That's a very high CTR. I doubt you'll get 1 in 100.
Usually it seems like we talk about CTR as it refers to pageviews instead of visitors. But even if each visitor only looks at one page the 1 of 30 isn't an especially high CTR at 3.333%.
If each visitor looks at a more likely 3 pages the CTR becomes much lower as it refers to pageviews.
Of course CTR varies widely depending on all kinds of factors, as others have indicated.

I found very interesting paper dated 2002 comparing Google and Yahoo.
Ho hum, AdSense didn't exist then!
More than $50 Cost-per-Click.
Whilst most here "have heard" about this the reality is that since the introduction of Smart Pricing it is very unlikely that many have seen such high-priced clicks and certainly not a constant quantity of them.
We had a thread recently and if I remember correctly the highest single click someone had seen recently was +/-USD 25.00.
I regularly see USD 1.00-2.00 clicks however my average is way, way below:-(
'1 of 30' is 'visitor'-related term, and CTR is 'hits'-related
no, ctr is 'ad view' related. 'hits' is the number of fetched items on your page. it's a term mostly used by newbies, who believe it is something important, not knowing that this metric is completely useless for adsense and nearly all other comparisons.
for subjects like cancer, mortgage
Yeah. Mortgage. Wasn't there something in 2007, in the U.S.? Like a mortgage crisis? Like, affecting the whole world economy? ;-)
Maybe there were advertisers willing to pay big bucks for mortgage related ads. But I guess that bubble has burst by now.
