I know Stanford does but the other two don't have that information on their websites and the samples are all one pagers.
Looks like Harvard does, no info for Yale. Maybe e-mail their admissions office or read around on their website.

Do they accept them? Or should you send a 2 pager? Pretty sure they accept them (I know Yale does, not totally certain for Harvard), though I'd suggest one page is almost always preferable (the only exception I'd make is for academics with extensive C.V.s, and who are shooting for academia)--a resume isn't a list of all the things you've done, it is tailored highlights of your most impressive accomplishments and experience. That the samples are one pagers is a good hint of what they want.
