Extra Curricular Information

I took the LSAT again in December and went from a 168-->174. This is my new account so that my old data isn't lost to those in the future who may be close to the stats I got my original acceptances with.

Extra Curriculars: Nothing crazy. Involved in some clubs, employment is nothing exciting. Some leadership.
I think LORs are probably pretty good, 2 academic, 1 professional (2 academic if the max was 2 at a school).
Personal statement was decent, spent a lot of time on it.
C&F statement just 1 (major, but not DUI) traffic ticket.

Past LSAT:
168 (June 2017)
164 (Feb 2017)

Did optional or "why" essays for every school that had a spot for them. No addenda other than C&F.

Hey! Thanks! It took a lot of hard work. I recommend checking out the advice from the lovely people on reddit (The LSAT subreddit). They guided me so much! I studied on my own without a prep course or tutor, so those score gains were all my own blood sweat and tears! The one thing that helped me the most was CALMING DOWN! I had major nerves going in to the June test and they destroyed me! Best of luck :)
