While there is no official page limit, a good guideline is two double-spaced pages, using readable fonts and margins. Your personal statement/essay should be clear, concise, and an example of your best writing. It should also be free from spelling and grammatical errors.
I currently have three full pages for my PS with double-spaced and font 12 Times New Roman. Since Columbia does not have a maximum number of pages, what should I do? Cut the essay down to two pages or keep my essay as it is? I really like how my essay is right now, and don't know if I can maintain the overall feel if I start cutting sentences left and right.
