Most top schools like Yale, Brown and UPenn have short word limits so the applicants can focus better on just one point instead of endlessly going on and on about themselves. So instead of trying to mention everything about yourself, try to focus on just one aspect or incident.
Incase, you’ve written more than 650 words, start from cutting big pieces, then sentences and then words which are not relevant to your topic in general. Just remember to NEVER go over the word limit.
