Getting into chemistry grad school with no chemistry background?

I would like to pursue research in supramolecular chemistry, but I am a couple years out of school and do not have a chemistry background. Also, I lack letters of recommendation. I am certain I cannot get into a decent Ph.D. program, but do I have a shot at getting in a Master's program? Or must I resort to taking classes at a university somewhere? [more inside]

Calling all med students, past and present

Thinking back to medical school classes like Biochemistry and Pharmacology, how much foundational knowledge did you actually use from your undergrad courses in related subjects? Was it important to walk in being able to solve all of the kinds of problems you’d see in general chemistry and physics, or were concepts more important? I am trying to understand how much ‘general’ review is required for success before someone who has been admitted actually starts a medical school program.
