    My Personal Statement is 47 lines and 3645 characters which is currently the line limit so I can't write any more. Is this an indication that my PS is badly written if the character limit is 4000

    No! As long as you think you have written everything you need in there then it will be fine. If you want to add more, try to leave out some unnecessary words and take out sentences that don't add anything the the PS, leaving you space to write more valid stuff.

    Quality not quantity. Keep that in mind.

    I'd rather read a short, concise Personal Statement; rather than a long, boring Personal Statement.

    Is this the 47 lines when entered on UCAS, or on Word? I think, if it is the UCAS cut off, you wouldn't be able to write any more, but otherwise it sounds like it could be the font or text size.
    And, no it's not a bad sign at all! Length doesn't mean a lot, it's all about how you have sold yourself and reflected on your experiences
