If Vinny Guadagnino's career as one of MTV's Jersey Shore guidos doesn't pan out, he has a fallback plan.
"I took the LSAT," Guadagnino, 21, told UsMagazine.com at the 16th birthday bash for Sean Combs' son, Justin, at New York City's M2 nightclub Saturday.
"My score was decent. I had a plan that if my score was really well [sic], then I might of just went to Yale or Harvard… But it was just mediocre. I can get into law school," he added. "I had a 3.9 GPA, Latin Honors, but I'm doing this right now. Law school is always on the back burner."
But he's happier fist pumping at the beach.
"To tell you the truth, man, [being a] lawyer isn't something I wanted to do. Nobody wants to be a lawyer — it's hard work. But it was kind of my academic route," he says, adding that if he were to practice, he'd go into "business or corporate law."
Guadagnino says he's enjoying the fame from appearing on an MTV reality show, watched by 4.8 million viewers during last week's finale.
"I was always humble and I was the person on the couch watching this and never even imagined it would happen to me,” he told Us. "And now I'm suddenly right there in the front row being interviewed, so just the whole experience is a dream."
The cast is currently in salary negotiations to return for a second season.
