Directly from AUA's website:

"Completed Personal Statement - the length of the personal statement is to be no more than two pages long and double spaced. Explain why you are considering a career in medicine, why you would be an asset to AUA, and significant accomplishments or activities, personal interests, and any additional information that would be useful to the Admissions Committee in evaluating your application."

As far as margins, welcome to post-secondary school. 1-inch margins are the APA standard!!! Good luck...

I don't think that 2.5 pages is going to hurt you!! My personal statement was double of what they asked me to wrote. And I got in. Oh well!
