UC Berkeley Update - Should I list comparable courses?

Hello,

I am a California community college student applying to UC Berkeley for Fall 2010.

Sorry for the last minute question, but on the Major Prerequisites form, can I list courses comparable to the requirements, but not listed on Assist.org?

For example, for the "Computer Science 70 (Discrete Math & Probablity Theory)," requirement, can I list "CS-113 Discrete Math for Computers, (My college), 3 semester units, PL, spring 2010)? Note that CS-113 is NOT listed on assist.org as equivalent.
Or should I list it in the comments?

This line scares me:
Misrepresenting your academic information will result in the cancellation of your Berkeley application.

Thanks in advance!!

    If Assist.org doesn't think it's an equivalent then it is NOT an equivalent.

    Thanks for the response.
    I guess I will just list that I believe it is equivalent in the comments box.

    This FAQ question guided me slightly:
    Q: I’m not sure if a course I’ve taken might substitute for a required course. Whom can I ask?
    A: In the interest of fairness and equal treatment for all students, Berkeley staff cannot discuss these issues personally with applicants. You must use the space provided in the “Comments” section of each form to explain your specific case. If we need more information, we will contact you by email and/or phone.

    If you list it as an equivalent I'd say you have to mention it in the comments box. Good luck with this one.
