Did they pull up your file while discussing it with you? As in, did the admissions person know your stats while you spoke?
If not, I would take their suggestions as friendly advice and try not to think too much about it. There should be quite a few more batches to go.
I think Ryerson takes your best 20 courses no matter when they were taken. You might be able to do apply as a mature since you've been working for more than 5 years. That's a really good LSAT, so I would say it's worth trying.
