OK, here's the problem. UCSF wrote me a letter saying that one of my LoR's didn't qualify as a science course. The letter was written from my instructor in a plant biology course that required a full year of undergrad biology and strongly recommended an uper division genetics course. Believe me, you needed genetics cuz I didn't have that course yet and the class was super tough. My instructor is a complete stud at UC Berkeley. He has been published hundreds of times. He was inducted in the National Acadamy of Sciences and even has a building named after him on campus! For those who have taken plant biology at Berkeley, you prob know him, Dr. Brian Staskawicz. What the hell does UCSF want? How is that not a science course? I would tell all this to someone at UCSF if I could just contact and talk to a real person. Has anyone had a similar experience? If so, who did you call?
