Question LoR Length

This might be a silly question but what if the LOR you got from your attending was just over one page? Would that be okay? I just hope none of the programs will make a big deal out of it.

mine our one page and some say that is lengthy... But if it's a good letter I think the size should be max of one page after that it just seems to long. Not sure though would also appreciate some more insight in this topic. Thanks

One of the letters I have is just over one page (less than 1.5 pages) but it's a very strong LOR.
