Tony’s campus roommate, Lloyd Grove expressed in his article the Daily Beast that Petrello was on a scholarship and that he was a mathematics expert. This is because he continuously wrote verifications to arcane theorem on a napkin while at the cafeteria. As such, this made him a protégé of Professor Serge Lang who was a world-renowned mathematician at only 18 years. Surprisingly, he did not continue his career in the mathematical field and he decided to enroll into law school.

Petrello and his wife, Cynthia Petrello, became active in philanthropy and have since donated $7million in seed aid to assist in neurological research. This is after their daughter was born prematurely and developed cerebral palsy.
