we are aware of what you were implying. NerfCo was just telling you that your assumption was ridiculous. Non-ABA schools and UofT are not comparable with respect to bar passage rates and your attempt to do so is disingenuous.

They ran 5150 and 5157 against, likely, phone numbers, addresses, etc. and found this guy. They questioned him, since he already had a record (which is the part that should possibly be upsetting, since that was a rather tenuous reason to visit someone).
Later, DNA that was found was compared to all potential suspects, which he now was, and he was found.
Seems logical to me, except for the fact that I don't think police should be picking on past criminals. I know, I know, they say he did it, but slippery slope.
I think that the LSAT is just not as important to Canadian schools because they don't care about being ranked like the US schools do. They are able to be a tad more holistic. Also, one must realise that the applicant pool in Canada is much smaller than in the US. U of T may not even get enough applicants with a high LSAT to be able to bring up the entrance stats. So, for all those reasons, U of T is probably not in the mid twenties - I would say around 7-14 and it is only there because it has less money than the big schools in the US - although that may not actually be saying anything.
I think another big thing is that the legal market in Canada is minor compared to the US, so even if UofT was "ranked" higher, it would still feel the exodus of high stats students to the US who just want the opportunity at an extremely high paying job immediately after graduation.

see, CLS is important to me. I am just semi-retarded at the moment. I figured that my situation was unique enough that I would not have to send more stuff. Applying to LS is making me realise just how ique* I am.
*aique? ... normal.
