Work experience: 4 years, of which 6 months in consulting (erstwhile Monitor) and rest in Test & Measurement B2B Sales (business development role with a revenue target)
GMAT: 750 (Q:50, V:41), AWA: 4, IR: 8, TOEFL: 112
Extra curricular: very active in the start-up circle: regular interactions with technology start-ups, guiding tech start-ups to break-even
Education: B.E. from a top-10 engineering institution in India (non IIT)...scholarship and diverse volunteer experience, CGPA aroung 3.6-3.7

My target schools are: Tuck, Kellogg, Duke, Cornell, Yale, Darden
Post MBA goal: Product management-Technology

A nagging query I have is: as a non-native speaker how do I mitigate this AWA score? should I give GMAT again? and whether this score is a deal-breaker at my target schools. This is a riding concern as I received a Fuqua ding earlier and have been evaluating/introspecting the reasons for that ding.

Your thoughts/insights would be really appreciated

thanks and regards

Ghorkalyug-

Fuqua is notoriously hard on high GMAT applicants because there is a stigma that they are not as well rounded. It is very unlikely that your AWA score had anything at all to do with your rejection, especially since your TOEFL was above a 110. Perhaps your interview did not go well, or it could have simply been the fact they had exceeded their need for applicants with similar profile characteristics as yours. They like reapplicants, and would give you special consideration especially if you can demonstrate some interesting advancements in your profile since your last time. Sometimes it's simply a matter of timing. Without a full review of your application from last time it's tough to say, but I would recommend you hire a consultant this time since someone with a profile like yours should be able to get into the top 10 fairly easily.
