"I was busy being famous!" Lauren Conrad's former nemesis explains. "USC was so much fun, though, and you can never learn enough. Of course, I should probably have a doctorate or two at this point, but I'll take it."

And throughout the extended process, Pratt's had a phenomenal study buddy — his wife of four years Heidi Montag!

"Heidi is the best, always so supportive," he revealed. "She drives in to class with me, quizzes me with flashcards, everything. I'm a lucky man."

Montag, 27, has her own milestone to celebrate. She recently had a breast reduction surgery bringing her size-F's down to C cups, and Pratt supported his bride every step of the way. After Us Weekly's Nov. 18 issue came out with Montag and other Hills cast members on the cover, the proud hubby tweeted, "Please buy @usweekly today! My amazing wife @heidimontag and my 2 awesome BFFs @LaurenConrad and @KristinCav are all on the cover!"
