I found some kind of solution, it's not perfect but, it's closer to what I am used to and need (run these in the terminal):

# Reduce font sizes (adjust "0.6" to some value that suits you. eg: 2.0 = twice the size, 0.5 = half the size)
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface text-scaling-factor 0.6

# Reduce Title Bar heights (takes effect after session restart/logout,login)
cat > ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css <<EOF
.header-bar.default-decoration {
  padding-top: 0;
  padding-bottom: 0;
}
GtkButton {
  padding-top: 0;
  padding-bottom: 0;
  margin-top: 0;
  margin-bottom: 0;
}
>EOF

Additionally, I tweaked my browser with the instructions here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/HiDPI#Browsers. I kept some other notes here: https://gist.github.com/grenade/6363978
