culo pelado

¿Has traducido los nombres de las demás carreras? Si dejas alguno sin traducir, deberías hacer lo mismo con todos. En todo caso, "to bust one's butt" significa trabajar muy duro

DEFINICIÓN (http://bits.westhost.com/idioms/id99.htm)

bust one's butt, "to make an extreme, strenuous effort, to exert oneself"

Bust my butt: work very hard, work my fingers to the bone
She busts her butt to earn a good wage, and he spends it.

Si lo quieres traducir, se me ocurre "culo pelado", para mantener el tono jocoso y porque por aquí se utiliza la expresión "tener el culo pelado de tanto trabajar". Cualquier opción que signifique "esfuerzo, trabajo duro" te puede servir.

¡A ver si te ha ayudado!
Un saludo,
