Hello,
I wanted to get some feedback from the community on the importance of AWA score. Basically, I had very little time to prepare before my test-date and plan was to take the test anyways for practice and retake it again at a later day. As such, i did not spend much time on the AWA section of the test and got a very poor 3.5 score. I scored 710 otherwise which I think should be good enough for the programs that I am interested in, mainly Santa Clara Leavey part-time and Berkeley Haas EWMBA. I would like get some feedback on whether it's important that i retake the test to fix the AWA score.

thx,
-ash

For the programs you mentioned you are totally fine...
Also, the AWA can count for something, but it's significantly less important than the main score.
