Does the dramatic story for NYU's Grad film program have to be at MAX 2 pages?

Working on the dramatic story I tried cutting down as much as I could and right now it's at about 2 and 1/2 pages. The instructions said to write a 2-page story but I'm not sure if they meant that it has to be strictly under 2 pages or slightly over 2 pages.

If it says 2 pages then make it two pages. Do they have a font and size requirement?

What are the exact instructions?

Getting it down to two pages is also great editing practice which is very important. Being forced to rethink and hone your story will also make it better. :)

These are the exact instructions

"Dramatic Story: The Dramatic story is a required short narrative writing exercise. Write a two-page story which builds dramatic tension and ends with one of these lines:
Format for the Dramatic Story: 2 pages, double-spaced"

Definitely just 2 pages then.
