Two Page Resume: Practical Solution or Surefire Path to Hell?

Thankfully I am not hungover today -- but, unfortunately I still have an exam in just a few days, so gotta get the old nose back to the grindstone. In the meantime, here's a question for all the lawyer readers in the house...

Two page resume...ok or not?

I have my Air Force stuff, plus last year's summer job, plus my job during school this year, plus now I'll have this year's summer three schools (BA, MA, JD). The writing is already getting tiny, so what if I made the resume more like 1.5 pages with the bottom half of the second page for references? Career Services seems to think the two page resume is pretty much up there with bestiality and necrophilia in terms of its general non-acceptability...any opinions from the people out there in the "real" world?
