So you should just title it "Personal Statement" for each one?

What makes people say the October/December tests are hardest? (Though it's a known fact the February LSAT is the most inconvenient to take, if only because you never get to see what you got right/wrong and Feb tests are never released).

Your extracurriculars will impact your LORs only if the professors writing your LORs are involved in those activities. But targeting those activities to cater to those professors might make them either be suspicious of you (thinking you're brown-nosing, if they're cynical) or they might be glad you're there (if they knew you beforehand and liked you).

Your senior year grades matter a lot. But a thesis shows dedication to your field of study (in addition to allowing you to get honors, depending on your school), and that LOR will be really, really handy if you know that professor well--it can mean the difference between a reject and a waitlist, a waitlist and an acceptance.
Consider taking the LSAT after you graduate, and finding a job/internships during your time after graduation. That can be a viable option if it means you'll get your thesis, LOR and are able to focus on raising your grades some.
Makes sense, thanks for your input and clarifications!
I will try to get a 170 or so. I just fear I'll get attacked by nerves. My highest score on the practice exams is generally around 168 or so right now....weak on games, going to try and improve on those.

Have you been calling them to ask about it?
