Carly emailed the below, hysterical youtube clip on Saturday afternoon.
Katie – our Kellogg School of Management girl – responded immediately:
“You all have no idea just how completely true this is…”
The infamous MRS degree – a decades-old joke that the most valuable thing a girl can get out of a college degree is a ring. This Single Ladies mock from some Columbia Business School (CBS) ladies takes it one step further saying that if you don’t complete that “degree” in undergrad, give it a second try in B-school – a jackpot of husbands.
It’s funny because it’s true – there’s a total sense of “who’s still available” among the grad school set, but the bigger question is was college (under or grad) the last, best-case scenario to find the right guy? Never again will we be surrounded by so many like-aged, like-minded, like goal-oriented peers. Never again will we have tons of free time, organized social events, and themed reasons to act like idiots. Never again will we have so many occasions to wear a name tag…
I have no (legitimate) reason to go to grad school, so I’m disqualified from the conversation, but you’ve got to wonder how many girls out there hemming and hawing about the decision to apply add, “could find husband” to the pros column of their “should I?” list. Are they shallow? Are they foolish? Are they sexist? Or are they just right?…
Bravo to these three who pulled back the curtain, in black leotards with these ridonc lyrics:
