Hello, All!

I scored a 750 (Q49 V42 IR8) on the GMAT last weekend (2 days ago) per the unofficial reort. But I most likely got a sub 4.5 AWA as I was exhausted after the other three sections and didn't use any "clear" modifiers like "secondly", "in conclusion", etc. (now that I look back I don't think I even HAD a clear conclusion, and my essay was only 3 paragraphs total). I'm worried I will end up getting a sub-4 score on the AWA especially since the scoring machine really cares about those strong transition phrases and quantity of sentences.

Should I retake if aiming for a top 10 full-time US MBA program??

Thank you in advance for your kind and objective responses!

Guess this is a negative side effect of the new section order change,
which will affect more people in the time to come.

One suggestion, before you re-take the test, you could try talking to the Adcom of the respective colleges
you plan to apply and check if a 4.5 on the AWA would affect your candidature?

Congrats on the awesome GMAT score otherwise. All the best for the application phase.
