M.R.S degree

acronym; slang
'M.R.S degree' is a term primarily applied to female students who attend top-tier universities (such as Rice or Harvard) in the hopes of finding a husband, rather than to obtain an education (i.e. they attend college to earn an 'M.R.S degree' above all else). M.R.S is a 'faux acronym,' spelling out the honorific 'Mrs' used to address married women. The connotation is slightly negative.
 
"I haven't studied for my M.R.S. in a long time. We need to go get our nails done as soon as possible."
