I got it. People have asked before how Alice got enrolled in the same college as Sam conveniently and such, things like that. I came up with a pretty believable answer. Dylan. He's been working with Soundwave and Laserbeak his whole life, and he's been after Sam for a while, who's to say they didn't bring down the pretender and he helped her try and get close to Sam so they could use him to spy on the Autobots? She could have posed as his daughter in human mode and in paperwork so she could get in to the college and Dylan could have paid for it. What do you guys think?
