Some schools require a specific word limit. University of Illinois says 200.
Either way, the shorter the better - as long as you have enough room to be coherent.
One page is as long as it should ever be. I suggest one paragraph or two short paragraphs.

If the instructions say "about one page" or no length limit at all, then 3-4 lines on page 2 will be fine. The key is to make sure your writing has substance.
