Could not agree more. Write what you need to to convey your point. I cannot remember ever looking at the length of a personal statement and thinking, "well that is too short to be an acceptable grad student and PT." If anything I applaud the brevity initially, but the content is what is important.Content over bs. If you can expand without being bs and pandering to things that don't reflect you, then I would expand. Otherwise, oh well. Just don't drop the word passion like 50 times and make sure you know what you're getting into and why you're choosing pt over other healthcare professions. For you.
