I scored a 720 on my GMAT and found out that I received a 4.0 on my AWA. I've already requested a regrade but I am quite upset with myself. I am a native speaker of English and received a 42 Verbal and 40+ on Quant. I have a lengthy history of excelling in my writing classes during my undergraduate years. My question is how bad will this 4.0 hurt my chances at admissions?

I would not worry too much about 4.0.

720 is a great score and that's what matters. AWA does not get included in school rankings, so they look at it a lot more leniently. However, if you have brilliant essays, that may not add up.
