Vinny From Jersey Shore In Re: The LSAT And Its Relevance In Building A Legal Career

What’s going to be funny for me is that I’ll now be able to tell laypeople that most prospective law students are like Vinny from the Jersey Shore.

Yes, we’ve reported before on Vinny Guadagnino’s law school aspirations. We’ve looked at the Jersey Shore star’s GPA. We’ve listened to him opine on why going to law school is just more work than he’s willing to do right now. I don’t really know why everybody is so fascinated with what one random reality TV star will do if and when his fame runs its course. Maybe it’s because people think the Jersey Shore people are “dumb” while people who go to law school are “smart”?

Anyway, mine is not to wonder why: Vinny is now talking about his LSAT score, and his take on things is not going to sound strange to anybody who has spent time around recent law school applicants.

If he does go to law school, maybe he’ll be able to help his Shore castmates with their recent legal entanglements. Oh that’s right, this post is a full on mash-up of Jersey Shore legal-ish news….

Let’s start with the LSAT. Vinny, the “scholar” of the Jersey Shore cast, was interviewed by the Daily about his post-Shore plans. Unlike some of his more virulent expressive castmates, Vinny hasn’t as yet been pegged for a spinoff. And isn’t law school what we all do when our more interesting dreams die?

Well, Vinny isn’t ready to give up just yet:

“I hope to continue my own personal artistic kind of TV business,” he said. “I don’t want to say anything until it’s too concrete, but there are plans that I have to keep this train rolling.”

But he’s got his fallback:

“I have my bachelor’s degree and I have my LSAT, so even if I do become an actor, I always do want to maybe go back to school,” Guadagnino said.

Vinny declined to reveal his LSAT score to Flash, but despite hinting it was sub-par, he told us he’s confident about his potential law school application.

“I graduated with a 3.9 GPA … but my LSAT, I’m not really a good standardized test taker,” he said. “I think I could get into a good amount of law schools. Not the best ones, but a good amount.”

Do the people who shrug off a crappy LSAT score with “I’m not really a good standardized test taker” realize that there is a HUGE, often multiple day, standardized test waiting for them at the end of this educational journey?

But whatever, we know that this is how prospective law students think. Step one: get into a “good amount of law schools.” Step two: ??? Step three: profit!

In any event, if Vinny does get any kind of legal training, maybe he’ll be able to help Michael “The Situation” Sorrentino defend his wardrobe. Today’s news is that Abercrombie & Fitch is willing to pay The Situation to not wear Abercrombie clothes. Here’s the press release (gavel bang: Legal Blog Watch):

Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF) today reported that it has offered compensation to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, a character in MTV’s TV show The Jersey Shore to cease wearing A&F products.

A spokesperson for Abercrombie & Fitch commented:

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans. We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’s The Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”

Legal Blog Watch is actually your go to source for the very latest on who is and is not allowed to wear Abercrombie & Fitch clothing. On Friday there were additional reports about people not allowed to shop at the store. Heck, one of my new goals in life is to find somebody who will ban me from wearing their attire.

I’d say more, but the latex prophylactic I’m using to write this post without catching Jersey Shore diseases is starting to wear. Don’t worry, it won’t be long before another one of these fine young Americans again tangles with the justice system in one way or another.
