Can anyone suggest good website/resources to assist for Essay writing for schools?

Also-though I have OK type GMAT score 720 (V-90,Q-90) , I scored only 4 in AWA. Does it have any impact on my applications?

Hypothesis on the matter would be that with a lower AWA can be entirely offset by the quality of your essays - with a 4.0 easily (the only way this wouldn't work is if you got say a 2.0, then you wrote stellar essays - then people think someelse wrote them).

Having said that, I don't think a 4.0 is anything to worry about too much. Just put the work in.

There are several threads on essay books on here - Montauk and Bodine are the two preferred texts by people on here.

Paul Bodine's book is pretty essential.

From my research on the matter...
When AdComs see your marvelous essays and compare it with poor English/AWA score - they see a disconnect and can assume you hired someone to (help) write it.
Said that: you have a really good score in English and a 4 on AWA is probably not bad (percentile?) - so I wouldn't worry about it.
