I don't think I've ever encountered a prof so mean in my life...I'm not exaggerating, but I think the lady is malicious. She cuts people off and belittles them in class and she is very discouraging in her office hours. The problem is that its my postbacc year, I'm doing ok in my other two science classes, but my biochem prof is the devil I think. I am working my ass off in her class, and trying to get more help from her and she makes me feel so lousy and discourages me from even trying...(but I won't give up). Has anyone won over a prof they thought was mean? Any advice?
