I have a question about UMSL. Basically, i have failed my 2 attempts in organic chemistry and got a "D" in biochemistry. I am retaking organic chem at the moment and so far i have a great start in the class. I had emailed one of the admissions counselor at UMSL and they said to not even retake both biochem and organic chem (both are 1st level of ochem & biochem) and to take higher level courses of ochem and biochem...i know that other schools would require me to retake these courses again and try to aim for a better grade. Has this happened to anyone before? I was thinking that if I didn't retake the lower level organic chemistry, then how will i be able to understand the 2nd half of organic chem? Also, I would expect them to email me in a professional manner, but the way that it was typed...it sounded as if i was a 10 year old.
