Applying to MIT Sloan Question About AWA [#permalink]

Hello there, I am from Turkey and I will apply the MSMS program in MIT. Our school has partnership with MIT sloan and I guess it will be a bit easier for me to get an acceptance.

My GMAT score is V:33/Q:49/Total:670 but I got a very low AWA with 2.5. I actually just checked the section and just wrote some stuff and pass it since the schools that I was planning to apply did not require AWA. Can this be a problem for MIT Sloan MSMS program?? I also got a Toefl and my score in writing was 24/30 so would this help? Should I mail the adcom about this or mention about it on my SOP?

Thanks in advance.

I am not familiar with the MSMS program at MIT, however I do know that most of the top tier MBA programs expect at least a 4.0 on the AWA. Anything below that and they start to question if you actually wrote the essays within the application. Just note, scoring a 6.0 on the AWA won't make your application any more competitive. Increasing your quant/verbal score however will.
