I'm glad someone's count is similar to mine! To be honest, I think we're just fine with that length.

I'm still in the process of editing mine, so it'll probably get a bit shorter as I trim the fat.

I have to say though that I HATE UNC's PS.  I'm going to have to write a whole new statement for that, since they want 3-5 pages.

Size matters, true, but who says less is more?
