so i am trying to refine my essay to fit into TMDSAS's stupid personal statement form (80 characters/line, 62 lines) and no matter what I do, it doesnt seem work well. Are there any programs that I can use where I can set a document to be that exact size and edit accordingly?

PS. Any TMDSAS people, contact me about fixing your website

Or go chop chop. That's what I had to do.
it seems like your essay is way to long. The last thing an adcom wants to see after reading forty to fifty of those in a day is another long personal statement. This is from the mouth of someone that has served on the adcoms at Texas Tech: keep the length of it to about a page to a page and a quarter. With essays longer than that he started skimming, thus missing some potentially important parts.
