My snake plant has been getting some white spots, the tips have been drying out, and the leaves are curling inward. I thought it must've needed more sun so I moved it to get more light but the curling still occurs. I try to keep it on a regular watering schedule and to let it dry out before watering again. Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong so I can save my plant?

Pull off about 1/2 an inch of soil off the top of the pot. You have your snake planted a little too deep. When you water, be sure and water enough until you get a tiny bit of discharge to come out the bottom of the pot and then stop. Don't leave your snake sitting in water ever. Then wait about 2 or 3 weeks before watering again. Snake plants like it dry and keeping the soil dry is best because they are a type of succulent.

I think you're keeping it too dry. Yes they are succulents types of plant but when in active growth they will take a good deal of water, particularly if kept indoors.
I water mine roughly once a week in Summer. You need to water thoroughly, until the water flows out of the drainage holes, you can discard any water after 10 minutes that the plant doesn't take up. Then wait until the top couple of inches of compost feels dry before you water again. The leaf curling is a sure sign of dryness.
