    I have gotten my essay down to two pages, but am not sure what to omit. How did you guys narrow down your essay? Did anyone have the same problem?

    Cut out anything that is non-essential or doesn't relate to the overall theme of your essay. Save your other material, as you may be able to use it for secondaries. A 4000 character essay that is focused is much better than a 5000 character essay that kinda rambles. Besides, adcoms are going to be flying through applications so fast this year that I doubt any committee members are going to be spending inordinate amounts of time analyzing our personal statements. Well, at least not until the interview stage.
