Errors in geography

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Beth is talking to the girl in the locker room, the voices do not match with the lips' movement. I found this on repeated viewings because who would look at her mouth in this scene?

Character error 

When Rubin is trying to convince Kyle to let them jump the bridge, he says that the car weighs 1600 lbs, and with the humans and cargo it weighs 2100 lbs. However, 4 adult males would weigh more than 125 pounds each. And that does not count the weight of their belongings.

Right after the scene with Kyle and Rhonda, they all get on the bus heading to the clinic to donate sperm. Right before that, they all ask Kyle how it went with Rhonda and he pulls out her underwear. E.L. says "did you kill a cheetah?", but it is actually leopard print.

When Josh proposes a monetary bet to E.L. over whether or not he slept with Beth, E.L. refuses, stating that he wouldn't bet money on something Josh couldn't prove. Logically, if this were the case, it would work in E.L.'s favor, since Josh's claim couldn't be substantiated.

When in the frat house during the step routine, one of the guys watching is wearing a yellow long-sleeved Polo shirt. The film has been reversed in this scene, as evidenced by the pony emblem being on the wrong side of his chest and the emblem itself appearing reversed.

In the beginning of movie Josh puts 3 stamps on the envelope to Tiffany. When he gets the mail back in Austin it has 8 stamps. While his friends could have added them when they went to the post office, it's unlikely that they managed to also move the stamps closer together and change both the address and return address, which are completely different.

In the beginning of the movie (while the credits are still rolling) while Barry is giving the tour of Ithaca University, the father of the African American prospective student is played by two different extras. In one scene he's an older man with gray hair. Then, as the tour continues, he briefly becomes a younger man whose hair appears to be dyed. Then in the following scene he's back to being the older guy. He even has a speaking part "That's probably because he's never been anywhere else."

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When they load up Kyle's Taurus for the road trip, it has a West Virginia license plate. Later, the film shows Kyle's parents eating at a restaurant in "Upstate New York", which they've been going to "every day for twenty years". However, this statement is proven to be wrong/a joke, so the license plate is not necessarily inconsistent.

When Josh leaves his Philosophy class he finds out that he needs a B+ on his midterm to pass the class. When they walk outside there are bright green leaves on the trees. This is consistent with midterms in early October, which is consistent with, e.g., Cornell's academic calendar.

Revealing mistakes 

While they are in the diner waiting for new french toast, the waiter comes over to refill the coffee. While he is talking to them, he puts his hand on the bottom (metal section) of the pot of supposedly "hot" coffee.

When Tiffany starts watching Josh's video, we see that it's different from that which was made at the beginning of the movie. This one leaves out such phrases as, (Beth) "Do you feel better yet?" (Josh) "I feel a little bit better, yeah..." Besides it zooms at the moment Beth was taking off her skirt so she couldn't do that herself.
