Go with Amazon.ca, for both powerscore-published materials and for real preptests from LSAC.  I found out the hard way that this is the cheapest route.

Oh Canada! / Happy Thanksgiving!
« on: October 10, 2004, 10:38:40 PM »
Greetings, fellow Canadian LSDers! 

I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving!  Hope you are all enjoying excellent dinners and conversation with your loved ones!

What do I have to be thankful for?  Health, family, and the opportunity to go to school.  And that the LSAT is over (this is a big one).  What is everyone else thankful for?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: oct 04 exp. games
« on: October 10, 2004, 10:34:24 PM »
I must have written the same LSAT form as you did, as I also had an exp. games section as the 2nd section and the real game in the 5th.

I think I did so much better on the experimental games, because by the time I got to the 5th section, my Dayquil was totally beginning to wear off  :'(

Oh well, back to turkey dinner!  Happy (Canadian) Thanksgiving, everyone!!

Ah, Skittles, being motivated and wanting to "live the American Dream" are exactly why I, as a Canadian citizen, will find it next to impossible to move to your country. 

The U.S. is okay with granting work visas to some doctors, nurses, and teachers from Canada.  NOT lawyers, businessmen, computer scientists, and so on.  It isn't the golden land of opportunity that everyone thinks it is- and they are naive to believe it.

Your husband, a Canadian citizen?  He is living in the States, I assume, because he married an American (you).  Unless I find myself an American husband, I'm just going to have to settle for working my way up the corporate ladder in the petroleum industry here in Alberta, which is being bought up by the Americans at an exponential speed.  God help us.

Labyrinths, I pretty much agree with you... Thanks for the Canadian love, baby!!

But, please, our politics do not make sense.  We have been underneath an oppressive Liberal government rule for over 12 years, and it isn't going to change any time soon.  The Liberals have been plagued with scandal after scandal, with (literally) BILLIONS of dollars being lost and misspent, and nothing is ever going to be done to correct the situation and punish those responsible. 

I guess I am just going to have to become Prime Minister, after leading the Green Party to victory in 2034.   8)

LSAT horror stories / Re: annoying proctors
« on: October 09, 2004, 04:41:19 AM »
Heh, if only I was so lucky to be distracted by shuffling papers and flying helicopters...

3 minutes into the first section, the proctor walked up to me, pointed at my timer, and asked me if she could take it up to the front and place it with my personal belongings.  I asked: "What, you mean my timer?"  She said, "Oh, that's your timer?  Okay, I'm sorry" and then she left me alone. 

MY PROCTOR TRIED TO TAKE MY TIMER AWAY!!  WHAT THE HELL WAS SHE THINKING?

Skittles,

As a Canadian, I can't help but directly refute your criteria for the "lofty complex" that permeates throughout our great, frozen country.

1) Americans are stupider than Canadians.  I mean, we voted in Jean Chretien for ~12 years, but consider this... the Americans voted in Bush over Gore in 2000.
1) a)  A quick quiz for the average American: who is Jean Chretien?  (Answer: was the Prime Minister of Canada for a really long time).

2) What is your definition of a "real country"?  One that has membership in the UN?  A sovereign nation?  One that doesn't defy the rule of American soldiers/politics/economics? One that goes to war with other nations over false intelligence created to gain the support of Congress? Take your pick.

3) America is better than the US.  Especially if you want to avoid social responsibility.  And if you enjoy the activity of war mongering.  And if you like to stockpile nuclear weapons with materials you need to import from Canada, such as Uranium.  And if you revere celebrities in your country, to the point that you elect them as key politicians (Reagan, Schwarzenegger, etc.)

4) Heh, I have to agree with you on this one.  Only the stupid Canadians really believe that the US would help defend our borders if Canada came under attack.  It's true, we need to spend more on a military.

5) Not very well versed in the dramatic effects of regionalism in the political dynamics of our great country, are you, Skittles?

Sorry, that was really sarcastic.  And I probably mispelled a lot of different words.  It's only because I'm drunk on good, Canadian beer.  TFB!!!

LOL, Canadian beer AND a woman whose grocery skills are top-notch?

Throw in the densest population of skilled hockey players on the planet, and an overabundance of deer that need to be hunted, and you have just created a SUPER MAN WORLD!!!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: How many Q's on each RC passage?
« on: October 08, 2004, 12:22:47 AM »
All the passages had 7/passage, except for that weird biology one, which only had six questions.

Total RC = 27
