Audience Reviews for How I Got Into College

Such an hilarious comedy, and a very realistic one, about moving from high school into college. If that's where you are in your life right now, I highly recommend checking out this movie. Or if you're past that milestone, like me, it'll bring back memories.

A poor 80's comedy that moral tells us grades aren't important when trying to get into an ivy league school.
