A discounted major refers to an undergraduate degree that is less strenuous on the student. Such a degree is deemed 'discounted' for its lowered GPA score.
Such degrees are commonly known as MRS degrees; however, discounted majors extend beyond the common MRS degree. Undertakers of discounted majors often have high hopes for law school acceptance, job markets, and a general drive to succeed.
This often leads to painful rejection; they often do not realize that their GPA is lowered by at least half a point when compared to real majors.
Flaunting about a discounted major is like passing a driving exam. You aren't special.
