I have just received my official score report and have found out that I only scored 5/6 from AWA. While I'm obviously happy with my overall score (though I know exactly which question I bombed in Verbal and it shouldn't have happened..) I'm a little worried about AWA. Ironically, I was so confident about the essay that I virutally spent only 1h preparing for this section of the test and I assume I must have omitted something that was expected from me in AWA.

I'm going to apply to HSW and I'm wondering whether such a score would not come off as inconsistent with my strong GMAT verbal and personal interest in linguistics.

I'm not a native speaker so on top of GMAT I will be taking TOEFL, which should easily show that I don't have any issues with writing in English.

Thanks in advance for any opinions on that matter.

chris139 - let me be the first one to congratulate you on the phenomenal GMAT score.

I'm no expert, but I don't think an AWA score can come in your way with that score. All the best for your applications!

Hey chris139
Congrats on the amazing score! Do not worry about the AWA. If it was 3 or lower, I'd be a little worried, but 5 is fine and in fact, I believe it's the average. Now the one thing I would say -- even with a score like yours, this process is not an easy one and indeed sometimes we see people assume that a great GMAT will "make" their application. Make sure you deliver across your entire application -- essays, recs, etc. Get in touch with us to set up a free consult for a full review of your candidacy. (You don't have to wait for me -- just schedule a session for a day/time that works for you.)
Congrats again!
Krista

Hi chris139,

Congratulations on an exceptional score! :) Truly well-done! With regard to the AWA, it is above the average. Hence, don't let it bother you at all. For now, just focus on creating a set of stellar essays and submitting an application that is truly reflective of your capabilities and potential.

All the best! :)
