Mr./Ms. vs Dr.

Today I received the following email:

Hello. I took [class] with Ms. B—— about two – three years ago, and currently I’m in the process of applying to graduate school. The graduate school that I am applying to would like a copy of the syllabus for your course to see if it fulfills their physiology requirement. Can you provide me with the [class] course syllabus?

I tried contacting Ms. B—— directly, but my attempts have been unsuccessful.

S—– J—-

My response:

Hi—I’ve attached DR. B——‘s syllabus from this quarter.


I wonder if CB were a man, would this student have called her Mr., or would he have defaulted to the correct title of Dr.? Either way, people be pissin’ me off today.
