So what does it make to get a fashion marketing major from L.A. to go to Harvard Law School? A chase and hunt to gain back the man she loves, or so she thinks.
Elle is a typical SoCal kind of girl, living the easy life with her parents in Beverly Hills, and being the president of her sorority chapter, Delta Nu, at C.U.C. L.A. and she is all set to take the next step. She has been dating Warner Huntington III (Matthew Davis), an East Coast preppie with his trust fund and dreams of running for the Senate. Only one thing is getting in his way of having that Harvard Law degree, and that is Elle. He wants a serious woman by his side, one that meets the standards of his blue-blood family, and he is ready to dump Elle to take his next step. After making a scene at a trendy L.A. bistro, and thinking her days with Warner are over, she makes a decision to follow her heart and her man, and applies to Harvard Law. After much studying and a very creative essay video, the old boys at Harvard like the idea of diversity, plus the fact that Elle is so cute, and decide to accept her.
