How important is it to reach the max character limits in secondary essays? I feel like some of them are impossible to reach. For example, I've been all over sites about certain medical schools, but without being there it's nearly impossible for me to write 2000 or more characters for my interests in a specific program. If you write say 800 characters on a 2000 character essay, how terrible does it look?

If you've said what you wanted to say, then shut up and move on. You never want to sound like you're just rambling to fill space.

Agree 100%.

If you need the space to elaborate and develop points, it's there. But they don't think you're not interested or you're a slacker for not using all the characters.
