When Rupert Grim learns that there are several students ahead of him in line to be admitted to medical school he devises a plan for them each to meet with a series of unfortunate '"accidents". Gabriel Higgs also is in need to get into the school, considering that every generation ahead of him has been a doctor. He attempts to bribe both Amanda Morel and Randall Burns, but they refuse to be bribed. Instead, both are both arrogant and belittle Gabriel. If it wasn't for the hacking skills of his friend Ron, Gabriel wouldn't have made the list at all. Gabriel then attempts to think of away to bribe Kirby Watts, but he falls in love with her instead, though he's rebuffed there as well.
First, Randall Burns meets a grisly end when he attempts to use a shower after getting chemicals on his clothing. Instead, the shower releases a different liquid that engulfs Randall in flames and he burns to death. Amanda Morel meets her demise after eating a morel fungus to which she's allergic. Both Amanda and Randall have met demises similar to their surnames. By now, Gabriel has become the main suspect, though he manages to convince Kirby he's the killer. Soon, Rupert Grim is able to lure Kirby into a situation that puts her life in danger. Grim announces his grand scheme to murder everyone in front of him on the list and frame Gabriel. Rupert has become a "grim reaper" of sorts. Gabriel is able to save the day and defeat Rupert and save Kirby. With both Burns and Morel dead, Gabriel is able to follow his new girlfriend Kirby into Johns Hopkins.

Dragan Antulov, who gave Getting In a 2/10 rating, called the film a "series of predictable clichéd situations and jokes that would hardly make anyone laugh. [...] The only memorable performance is given by Andrew McCarthy who obviously has a lot of fun playing psychopath."
