One of the lesser known facts about Jersey Shore's Vinny is that the guido has a serious scholarly streak. He graduated from college with a 3.9 GPA, and before he was cast on Jersey Shore, he was planning on going to law school.

Now, with five seasons of reality stardom under his belt, and the sixth still up in the air, Vinny is considering setting his sights back on the hallowed halls of higher education.

He told The Huffington Post that he recently appeared at an entertainment law panel at Pace Law School, and it gave him "the itch."

"I told the students, 'I should be sitting where you guys are sitting,'" he explained. "I definitely will consider going back to law school when the time comes, or maybe getting a master’s or a Ph.D."

That's right. The man best known for his prankster skills, guido bromance, and, ehem, Moby Dick could, theoretically, one day hold a doctorate in something.
