Can you work with them on the side?

I've already been doing so - She's been helping me edit a paper I'm writing.

Did she write you a rec? It's my understanding with grad school at least in the hard sciences that if you can find a professor at the target university in the specific line of research you want, and get them in your camp, you're basically in, since all you're gonna be doing for several years is working with them.

Yeah, she did. Idunno, U of T can be a weird school. Super conservative about really dumb things. They might have just not liked my thesis.

i would suggest you mailing them once and asking your prof to do the same. doesnt hurt to try, right? :)
