Transfer Application Personal Statement

 Hi all.

I'm working on my personal statement for the transfer application but fear that it is too long. Anyone here remember how long their personal statements were? I'm going to visit the writing center at my school in the hopes they can help me shorten it a bit, but I'm hoping to see what the average length tends to be. I've had a lot happen in my academic career so there is a lot of stuff the write about, especially given that they don't accept letters of recommendation or do interviews. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
