Certificate Personal statement coming into two pages

Is it a bad idea if the personal statement comes up to about two pages ? Also is it recommended to specifically state your fellowship goals or is it enough to just mention that you intend to pursue fellowship ?

Default It's OK

It's OK but never exceeds the two pages.

You can mention that you are looking for fellowships but do not say the type of fellowship (as that specific fellowship may not be available in the hospital and they'll say, Oh OK we don't have that and they won't send you for an IV)
