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.

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.

So far nowhere (I applied for 09), but I'm in the process of sending a cheque to HBS.

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