* CaliforniaDoubling: The filmmakers couldn't shoot at Harvard and had to shoot at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland. Some scenes were filmed at UCLA Film Schools in California. There are a few shots in the film that were sneak shoots of the greater campus area.
** A few places in the film were also sets.
** They did actually film in Massashusetts at the prep schools Phillip's Academy and Milton Academy. Admittedly CaliforniaDoubling is the easiest when it comes to universities since most higher education universities and prep schools look the same.
