What are the norms, as far as words, length, etc., for these two?

most people around here have personal statements in the 1250-1750 word range.

I was under the impression that personal statements should be two pages, double spaced, with standard one inch margins. That's probably about 750 words or so....

1 inch margins??  Hah!!  That's such a waste of space at the top and bottom.

Seriously though, I fudged mine to like .9 inches on the top and bottom, and I think it's still fine. Although by the time I'm done editing, I'll hopefully be able to go back to 1 inch and have it fit.
