It's like reading my life story. The EXACT thing happened to me, except I am from Texas and I graduated with a BS in Speech Language Pathology. I graduated in the top 5% of my college class and have double 4.0 gpa in science and my regular coursework. I was just missing General Chemistry and A&P 2. The lady told me she was sorry, but "when comparing apples with apples", the one with all the pre-reqs looks better, regardless of GPA.
