My DS is running over one page, I have 3 lines on the second page. I know supplemental essays should only be one page and I can't cut it down anymore. My margins are 1 inch all around with 11 point font. Any suggestions on how I can make those last 3 lines fit on the first page or is it ok that it's a little over a page?

Make the font size for all periods and commas (and spaces if necessary) 10pt? It's like the reverse "OMG how do I get this 9 page paper to 10 pages!" trick. Not sure if it'll help in this case, I haven't tried it.

"That" is a good word to omit in most cases-- do ctrl + f and you'll find a staggeringly large amount of them, half of them I'm sure are extraneous. You can also try to cut down some of your compound sentences by taking out "and"'s and making them shorter, separate sentences.
