Two things you're not considering:

1. A human reviewer must review your essays.

Quote:
How AWA Is Scored

Each of your essays in the AWA section will be given two independent ratings, one of which may be performed by an automated essay-scoring engine. The automated essay-scoring engine is an electronic system that evaluates more than 50 structural and linguistic features, including organization of ideas, syntactic variety, and topical analysis.


This will delay your official score report. It's rare your overall score will change, you're simply waiting for your AWA score.

2. We're not the GMAC. If you don't like it, feel free to send a comment/suggestion to the GMAC:

It is usually acceptable to submit your self-reported score to the school and they they will verify later but that may or not always work. Check with school.


But others on this thread have stated that scores must be sent by GMAC (and that scores sent by candidates won't be accepted)... what's the "truth"?

You're confusing topics.

When you submit your application, you self report your score. You do not have the ability to connect your application to your official score release from the GMAC (this is done in the background by the school w/the score files from the GMAC).

If your official score is not received by the school by the deadline, this may take you off the table as a candidate.

There is no "truth". You must contact the schools you are applying to. Some may accept an official score submitted after the deadline, some may not.

Thread locked as we're going in circles. PM me if you'd like it reopened.
