The word count for the personal statement states up to 4000 characters (2 pages maximum). Can I have a statement that is 2 pages long but has more than 4000 characters. Because 4000 character is less than 700 words taking not more than a page.

Hi Shiza,

No. Keep the statement under 4.000 characters and at two pages, or less. Lawyers ought to be concise; so should your personal statement.

I guess they are trying to account for applicants who use big font sizes.

But no, you shouldn't go over the character limit if they explicitly say that in the admissions requirements.
