Hi,

This may be a weird and trivial topic:

I retook the GMAT a few months ago and bumped from 720 first attempt (50Q, 38V, 8, 6 AWA) to 780 second attempt (50Q, 47V, 8, 5 AWA).

I am not considering retaking, but am curious if dropping a point on AWA will hold any weight whatsoever. I am a native English speaker, went to a near-top US university with a high GPA, and I can assume my essays will be very polished when I get around to applying in a couple years. I really don't know how I dropped since I used a very similar approach, but it happened.

I am planning on applying to mostly top 10 schools and a few in the top 5, but please just tell me not to concern myself with this :)

Do not concern yourself with this, you hit the GMAT out of the park and schools will not obsess over that point drop especially considering the other strong elements of your profile
