Could you please write your oppinion about my chances to get admitted to MSc. at Stockholm school of economics? Major economics.

My GPA is 4,8 out of 5.
Toefl iBT 109 out of 120(my writing score was 27 out of 30),
GRE revised-quant 161(old scale 770), analytical writing only 3.5
Thanks to my working paper in macroeconomic analysis I have been awarded the prize of the president of the University.

I have a strong quantitative background. Courses taken: Econometrics, Applied econometrics, Statistics, Multivariate statistics, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Micro (and Macro)enoconomic analyses, Mathematics for economists etc.
So I would like to know if I should even apply with such a low Analytical writing score? Is there a chance when suggested scores should be in range 4-4,5?

Thank you.

peter,

Go ahead and apply. The analytical writing score will not matter as much in this case. Your background will.

They won't write you off because of the score, but it might raise a few eyebrows. If you feel that 3.5 is not reflective of your ability, then I'd suggest you mention that in your app, along with reasons (if any).
If not, don't worry too much about it.

Good luck with your app.

i'm also very interested in msc at sse. i have your same problem, i took the gmat and got a 3.5 in the awa part. in the admission part of the website it's stated that entry requirements are : Analytical Writing: with a score of 4.5-5.0 or higher. :? after all, i was considering taking the gre because i'm really familiar with every quant test while i'm really weak in the verbal part. i've seen that the verbal score of gre is almost not considered at all, am i wrong?
