Personal Statement

My personal statement currently uses all of the 47 lines available, but is only 3553 characters long. Is this alright or should I modify my personal statement to have more characters whilst using the same number of lines or less?

P.S - I plan on submitting my UCAS application by the 17th of December.

It depends. Do you have anything else you would like to include? Is there anything you could expand on? I wouldn't add characters just for the sake of it.

Thanks! I've already conveyed everything that I wanted to in my personal statement, all I need to do now is get it reviewed by my teacher one last time to make sure everything is good to go.
