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.
