Good score in GMAT verbal, but low AWA [#permalink]

My GMAT is 730 (v40, q49), but my AWA is 4.0 (due to not paying much attention to it during test).
Should I retake to improve AWA? I have already applied to top-5 programs in R2, but I am worried that AWA may be a dealbreaker, and if so, will a better AWA now would help (I am confident it'll improve).
I'd hate for my AWA score to be the reason for my dings (as it is such a minor component of the whole app package)
