I was in your situation as well. I walked in convinced my 2-pager was fine. I have 10+ years of work experience including military service and then some related national security work after my uniformed time was up. I felt that I had a lot to say including my pro-bono advocacy and research assistance work during 1L year/summer. He convinced me to try one page, and now that I have the one page version to compare, I am totally a believer. It is much more impressive looking in this version. The breadth of experience is much more compelling when presented this way, rather than forcing them to turn a page. PM me email address if you want to see.
