CHOP IT OFF!   ;D  You will seriously need to do some revision and compress your PS.  Another method you could try is to narrow hte margins from 1 inch to .9 or .8 inch.

Would anyone mind sending me some personal statements or samples they've come across.  I am  trying to figure out how to format mine.

Thanks for any help.
