That can't be real. I received two straight 6.0's, and I'm not a big time player.

Congrats!.. Did you use a template of some sort? How long were your essays?

I used the Princeton template. However, I'm a solid writer and I used many transitions and was very organized. I don't think doing just the template guarantees a 6.0. My essay was 30-35 lines. Kinda long, but I had extra time

7% of all GMAT takers in one year is not a small number, so there is no question you are in it twice.

well. Universities would care if some did good and some did bad. Its hard to measure how they grade the essays anyways

Actually, they don't even look at it. They might if you're a non native speaker.

No they don't. I'm a non native speaker with the following stats:

GMAT V: 95%
TOEFL CBT: 290/300
GMAT AWA: 4.0 (34%). I was basically unaware of the existence of the template and wrote essays that were too short.

No-one cared. I got into HBS, Kellogg and Ross with $$. Cheers. L.

I'm sure your essays were good and a 95th% verbal score will negate any bad AWA score.
