Elle had a decision to make on The Kissing Booth 3. Would she choose Harvard or Berkeley? Would she choose Lee or Noah? Here’s a breakdown of the ending.

At the end of The Kissing Booth 2, Elle found out she was accepted at both Harvard and Berkeley. She had a big decision to make. Would she disappoint her best friend by choosing her boyfriend or would she disappoint her boyfriend by choosing her best friend?

We didn’t have to wait too long for the answer. Toward the beginning of the movie, Elle chose Harvard. She chose to be with Noah, and at first, things looked great. However, it all went south from there.

Elle tried to have the best summer possible with Lee. The harder she tried, the more she disappointed everyone around her. It didn’t help that Marco turned up and Noah was immediately suspicious and jealous.

In the end, Noah broke up with Elle. He wasn’t going to be the reason she moved to the other side of the country and then regretted that decision.

Where did Elle go to college on The Kissing Booth 3?

So, did Elle still go to Harvard? Did she ring Berkeley to see if she could change her mind?

Elle surprised everyone. She decided not to go to either college. Instead, Elle arranged a last-minute application and interview to the University of Southern California. She wanted to follow her passion of video game design.

With a basic concept of fantasy e-sports, Elle managed to secure a place at the college. She made a decision for herself and not for either of the two guys in her life. And I have to say that I loved that decision.

The ending jumped forward to after college. After initially breaking up, Lee and Rachel got back together. Lee and Elle also found out that the Kissing Booth was still a thing at their high school. Then Noah turned up.

He shared he had two job offers, one in New York and one in LA. He needed to decide between the two, and it looks like he’s got the decision that Elle had. Would he choose to remain on the other side of the country or would he pick LA and choose the possibility of he and Elle getting back together?

That’s something we don’t get to know, but we can dream that he and Elle found their way back together, right?
