Well, if every college has rejected them, they can make up their own, of course. With the help of Sherman (Hill), who has been accepted into the prestigious Harmon College, they make a fully-functional website for their fake school, and turn an [[AbandonedHospital abandoned mental hospital]] into a college building. They put forth Sherman's irascible uncle (Creator/LewisBlack) as the dean. Their parents are happy. Our heroes are happy.

-->-- '''Uncle Ben.'''

Bartleby Gaines (Creator/JustinLong) has a problem. His parents want him to go to college, and he has applied to every college he knows of -- but all of them have given him a polite "thanks, but no" letter in response. Bartleby is smart and innovative, two talents he has turned to such ventures as making fake [=IDs=] and pulling pranks, but which do not, sadly, [[BookDumb extend to his grades]]. His friends Rory, Glen, and Hands are in the same boat with him, but all for their own reasons. Hands, though accepted to numerous colleges, lost his football scholarship when he broke his leg and can no longer afford to attend the schools where he applied. Glen was not accepted anywhere [[CloudCuckoolander due to his score of "0" on the SAT's]]. Rory was the most academically competent of the group, and ''could'' have gotten into numerous prestigious universities, except she had ''[[CripplingOverspecialization only]]'' [[WhatAnIdiot applied to Yale, which did not accept her]]. What can they do?

Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: Bartleby is academically inept, but he can be quite crafty. Many of the South Harmon students are also this: they don't have conventional brilliance, but Bartleby gives them the freedom to develop other skills.
