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.

[[spoiler:In the end, it saves them, since he applied for accreditation just in case something happened.]]

* FakeRealTurn

to:

* FakeRealTurnFakeRealTurn: When the students who applied to South Harmon start thanking Bartleby for the opportunity at higher learning that they otherwise didn't have, it inspires Bartleby to stop thinking of South Harmon as a way to get his parents off his back and instead as a real organization to help out people otherwise locked out of higher education.



* HighSchoolHustler: Bartleby.

to:

* HighSchoolHustler: Bartleby.Bartleby, who got his start with making fake [=IDs=] during high school, and who manages to completely fool his parents into thinking South Harmon was real.



* MessOnAPlate: Glen's "Wads."

to:

* MessOnAPlate: Glen's "Wads."Wads" - everyone initially recoils at their appearance, which could most charitably be described as "brown lumps with chunky bits."



* ProperlyParanoid: Sherman is constantly afraid that the truth of South Harmon is going to land them all into huge trouble. Given that it's skirting legality on several fronts, he's not off-base. [[spoiler: This also results in him taking steps to legitimize the entire enterprise, setting up the film's climax.]]



* SlobsVersusSnobs

to:

* SlobsVersusSnobsSlobsVersusSnobs: The uptight and impeccably-dressed leadership of Harmon College against the eclectic and mismatched South Harmon applicants.


Added DiffLines:

* SupremeChef: Say what you will about [[MessOnAPlate its appearance]], but Glen's food is always complimented by whoever eats it. Appropriately, he's in charge of the entire school's cafeteria at the end.

Well, if every college has rejected them, they make up their own, of course. With the help of Sherman, 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 (LewisBlack) as the dean. Their parents are happy. Our heroes are happy.

* OffstageVillainy: Harmon College. The worst thing they do on-stage is haze Sherman, but we are supposed to see them as evil, close-minded, bigoted, racist, spoiled rich kids with a superiority complex.
** Trying to ruin a party out of jealousy is kind of a dickish thing to do too.
** Don't forget that one guy cheating on Monica, and even though they don't do that much that's really "evil" they still come across as assholes just from how they talk in general.
*** That was the same guy who instigated everything else. Harmon College is shown to have at least one bad student along with a few frat brothers who follow along, whereas S.H.I.T. isn't shown to have any students being anything other than lovable losers, without a hint of malice, so Harmon does look bad by comparison.
** ...and they wanted to destroy a school under false pretenses so they can build an ''entryway''.
** Not to mention they beat up Sherman to get information out of him. Then used said information to call all of their parents to the college just as they reveal to everyone that the school is a fake to add humiliation.
