The rule I've often heard is two pages, single-spaced (one site actually spelled this out as a requirement). It's tough, but just try to include "only the highlights," with the understanding that if they're interested in you as an applicant, that'll leave them with more to ask you about when they schedule your interview.
And blind chaos--haha thanks, that does help a bit. I've had one letter writer quasi-pull out due to other obligations springing up, so the LOR situation as a whole is a minor sore spot at the moment.
