Low AWA Score [#permalink] New post 12 Sep 2012, 07:32
I just found out the results from my GMAT. While I did better than expected on the rest of the exam (780 (50Q/47V) - 99% (90%Q/99% V) and 8 - 92% IR), I did really poorly on the AWA (4.0 - 20%).

It was my first time taking the exam and as I only spent two weeks in preparation, I didn't spend any time reviewing or preparing for this section. I went off on a long tangent and ended up running out of time before I could add the additional points I needed to round out my essay. As a native speaker and relatively strong writer, I'm frustrated because I know I could have done much better on the essay.

Would this score hurt my chances for getting into a top 10 program (assuming the rest of my background is sufficient)? Would it be worth retaking the exam? I'm reluctant to spend another $250 and a half day of my time given my overall score can't really go anywhere but down. I'd hope my essays & undergraduate GPA could alleviate any concerns regarding my writing ability.

Thanks for your perspective.
