Anything above a 3.5 AWA is generally considered acceptable. With a 5 you are perfectly fine for any program. A 5.5 is only 76th percentile, and 6 is somewhere in the 80's.

You've got nothing to worry about. Don't even consider a retake just for a 5 AWA. If you had a 3.5 or below you may consider it. Congrats on the great score!

I'm in at HEC and I had a 5.0 AWA. Don't think it's that important.
