My regular personal statement is 933 words and runs just over two pages.

UCLA specifically wants 2 pages, 12 point font. I messed with the margins a bit, cut down on some of the exposition and have 750 words.

Useless, I know, but if you do play with the margins, you're not the only one.

Ha, oy, the margins on my resume are also funny. not for consistency, but so that it would fit into 1 page. Addendum has normal margins though.

PS is double spaced but size 11...
yeah, that's right, cutting every corner.
