I have been told that not-bull****ting through this section is more important than filling it up, so I have 14 experiences listed and only 2 chosen as most meaningful. I haven't seen anything that talks about choosing less than 3 "most meaningfuls," it seems like everyone just assumes you have to. But it seems the most genuine for me to choose only 2. Does anyone have any experience with this and could offer advice? Should I choose one more? If I don't, is it going to weaken my application?

As I know from this forum, your questions really depend on schools.
Some might hate reading so many essays, and the other might be urgent to see those.
I would say 2 is fine. The issue is whether they really look most meaningful.

If you've said what you need to say, then it's fine to stop. Adding fluff will hurt you. Having two MM experiences won't.
