I kept all my personal statements within 2 pages (actually more like 1.5) in Times New Roman 11pt font double-spaced with 1 inch margins, just to be safe. I remember someone asked a similar question about PS length a while ago, and IIRC the majority of responders advised him/her to keep it within 2 pages without funny tricks like 10pt font or 0.5inch margins.

I believe NYU didn't have a set limit
if you feel like you really cannot cut it down more
3 pages double spaced times new roman 12ft. 11 at SMALLEST. really stick with 12. You should be okay. Just make sure every sentence is NECESSARY otherwise they'll be skipping over parts
