Damn I didnt know I was getting reply. I will be taking this fall. My friend took cancer bio from ucla and she said it was pure memorization and easier than blabla. Since Im ucla undergraduate, I assume it would be alright based on my friend's experience.
Sorry to re-initiate this post...I was wondering if any of you could provide feedback on how the course/professor were.

Thanks!

I'm thinking about taking this course this fall too, and would like any feedback too!
I registered for it. Guess that’s the only way to find out what the course will be like. Good luck everyone!

I want to take his course too. Does it count as an upper division science course? No one can give me a straight answer. I even called the UCLA med school

Anything above 100 is upper division course.
However, if you are trying to get pre-medical certificate, it's gotta be XL not X.
Cancer biology is X series.
Also, he said 44 out of 45 students got As last quarter but you definitely have to study a lot since his first lecture was about 75 slides.
This is week 2 so I cannot say much about it.
I may drop the course if I get into dental school since I am waitlisted.
Hope this helps.

400 series does not count as undergraduate level. It is post-bachelor's, so graduate that may go towards something or another.

As per UCLA extension's website for course numbers, "Courses numbered 1 to 99 are considered lower division (freshman/sophomore); those numbered 100 to 199 are considered upper division (junior/senior)... X 400 to X 499: Generally post-baccalaureate credit-bearing courses and lecture series in professional fields."

Did you end up finishing the course? If so, how was it?
44/45 A's though...on the surface seems like an easy class?
