No, it does not matter too much but if you get 4.0 on AWA and stellar essays for the applications, it will raise a flag. I'd say 5.0 is a good solid score. 4.5 is probably acceptable for an international applicant, but take a look at the chineseburnt's thread how to master AWA and you should not have any issues.
