Personal Statement / Need some advice on personal statement

I'm trying to start my PS, but I'm finding it difficult to come up with a coherent theme. 

I can't decide if I should write on 'why I want to go to law school', 'why I would be a good law student', or something more unique...  What have some of you written about?  Have you chosen one aspect of your life that you think illustrates your potential as a lawyer, or have you told a more chronological history of your post-secondary educational experience? 

I am having a bit of writer's block.

I belive my highest score was a 176, but I averaged around 171.  I got a 166 on the lamest LSAT in the world - June '07.  I'm focused on keeping my raw score consistently above 91.  A given raw score corresponds to quite different scaled scores depending on the test, but given the historical data for scaled scores, a score of 91+ should equal at least 170. 

I suggest focusing on consistently scoring a raw score within a certain range.  The 88 that I scored on the June LSAT only yielded a 166 while on some tests it would have gotten me a 171.  Shoot for the raw score that you need to get assuming the toughest curve possible.
