Oh Canada! / TestSherpa?

I have been studying on my own for the LSAT for quite sometime, but have resently come across the TestSherpa free LSAT test prep online program. Has anyone else used this or heard of this method for prepping? If so, what is your opinion on it?

Check it out with an advisor and maybe contact someone at the University of Wales and see if you might be able to get further insight. Either way, I think you should go for it. You might find that you may want to set up a career in the UK.

I'm 19 right now and am writing the LSAT on Dec 2nd (My Birthday...). I initially planned to graduate with a 3 yr degree at the end of this year. However I decided to take this fall term off and return for winter and graduate either this spring go ahead with the honours courses in either or both majors in graduate in 2008 instead...I dunno...i guess i got a bit of a choice to make.

I asked this on the general applications board, no one seemed to know, perhaps my fellow Canucks will do better:

Do US schools accept 3-year "general" bachelor's degree from a Canadian university as equivalent to an American bachelor's degree?  I emailed every school in the T-14, asking if they accepted Canadian "general" degrees.  Many emailed me back, with all saying that they accept the equivalent of American bachelor's degrees.  Anyone have any experience with this?

Update: UMich and Harvard both replied to say unequivocally that they would accept the 3-year "general" degree.  I'm hoping this means that the other schools will treat the degree similarily.
You shouldn't have a problem.

I had to make a desicion in similar regards, but I opted to write in December (on my birthday!) because that way I would have more time to study and could take the fall semester off of school. Additionally I don't plan to make admission till 2008 anyway, as I decided to do 4 years honours instead of just a 3 year BA in my majors.

Thanx for the laws4.u're a god sent!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: anyone here thinks LSAT is easy?

[...]I'm glad I didn't have to take the MCAT and re-memorize piles of facts! :)
I heard the MCAT is easier to write than the LSAT...I like the concept of the LSAT, where you're working not with what you know/memorized, but with what is there presented to you.
