    Detailed Information:
    When Michelle Rodrigues enrolled in a 100-level Biology course at the University of Illinois, no one told her the course's vivisection requirement would make her choose which was more important--her grades or her ethics. Rodrigues, whose religious beliefs forbid harming animals unnecessarily, could not participate in the demonstrations conducted on live rats and frogs. Her lab coordinator offered her no alternative, and as a penalty for her refusal to participate, her final grade was dropped a letter.
