Drumroll ....

After hearing that I was denied, I submitted a letter of appeal - pointing out that before my learning disability was diagnosed, I either failed or got D's and C's. After? A's and B's.
IT EFFING WORKED! Carleton has offered me a spot in the BA General Law program for fall 2010! I am beyond excited right now.
A few caveats: I can apply for Honours once I have successfully completed courses at Carleton with Honours standing (whatever that means, I'm sure I'll figure it out), I do not qualify for transfer credits (I didn't expect to), and I have to register with the disability center on campus (expected that).
Now please excuse me while I go jump and dance around my apartment like a maniac. YAY!!!

I already tweeted it at you - But congratulations!!! That is such wonderful, life-changing news.

Best of luck in your studies! University is fun and frustrating and inspiring and blood curling all at the same time. I hope you meet lots of wonderful people and study hard!
