I don't know why Word 2007 has 1.5 spacing between lines as the default. Weird.
Anyway, change the template this way.
See snapshot below and do this:
1- While on the Home tab, click the Line Spacing icon in the top ribbon. Click Line Spacing Options.
2- Change to 0.
3- Change to Single.
4- Click Default.
