Old School

Mitch (Wilson), Frank (Ferrell) and Beanie's (Vaughn) fraternity competes in the Academic Review. They all pass except for Blue who died a week before. Blue's score of zero brought back all their scores, making them fail. A brief confrontation between Mitch, Frank and Dean Pritchard AKA Cheese (Piven) leads to Megan Wang(the girl who the Dean bribed earlier) presenting a recording of the bribe to them. The Dean then runs, being chased by Frank. They struggle in the middle of a class, and Frank manages to get the tape. Dean Pritchard gets fired and his house becomes the new fraternity house. Frank also runs the college radio station. During the credits, The Dean gets crushed by a guy who drives his car off a bridge, Blue is in heaven playing the piano, Beanie is being controlling by his wife during a soccer match, and Frank shares a brief chat with Heidi (Lewis). Frank the Tank comes back.

Plot hole: When they are being told they have failed the evaluation, the dean tells them, "Yes, you people did finish with 84%, but another one of your pledges finished with a zero in every category." It then goes on to state that this drops them down to 58%. For one pledge to bring them down 26% there would have to have been less than four pledges, including Blue, i.e. only three actually taking the evaluation.

Question: At the end, the Dean has been arrested for bribery. Would the student who exposed him (Wang?) not have been expelled for accepting the bribe and abusing her position and shutting down a frat house?


Chosen answer: No. Because it could be viewed more as extortion than a bribe.
