Synopsis: High schooler Bartleby Gaines ("B" to his friends) is on his way to scoring a perfect eight out of eight college rejection letters-which isn't going to go over big with his parents. At least, he's not alone-several of his posse of oddball friends are in the same, college-less boat. What's a guy, facing down a lifetime career as a convenience store clerk, going to do?

Created his own college, of course. B calls in some friendly favors-has a techie bud build a website, convinces another friend's burnout uncle to pose as the dean and organizes a clean-up/building party at a local abandoned mental hospital-and South Harmon Institute of Technology is born.

Just as B and his fellow South Harmon classmen are settling into their charade, they realize they've done their jobs too well as dozens of other college rejects show up for classes at this off-the-radar institute. Under the scornful eyes of the privileged students and faculty from the neighboring college, B and friends forge ahead with maintaining a functioning (and fake) university. Their effort to keep up the use quickly escalates into a battle between the have-nots of South Hamon and the have-snots of their "sister" school-higher learning has never stopped so low.     Source: Universal Pictures
