If you think about the pool of lawschool candidates in the U.S. compared to Canada the difference is absolutely huge. There is about 15 law schools in canada. I have no idea how many are in the U.S. but it has got to be over 200. Smaller pool means less numbers at the top. Combine this with the fact that for most Canadians the LSAT is the only standardized test they will ever take. Compare this with Americans who go through standardized testing throughout their education and have been through the SAT/ACT ritual already.
