Hello Scott
This is a great forum.
I am seeking to app to Wharton.
but i got a sinking feeling when i recieved my AWA score.
3.5!!!! Cannot believe it.
Following are my stats for GMAT: V-38, Q-47 TOtal 690

As an engineer ( another one) I have been writing failure analysis, Service documents et al which is used company wide and worlwide.
overall not a crappy writer as indicated by AWA.
Now questions:

(1) How much does AWA weigh when the ADcom looks at it?
(2) Do they look at V score and say this is OK?
(3) Should i ask my Manager to specifically write a sentence or two in reco letter stating : eventhough his AWA sucks it doesnt indicate his writing skills"?
(4) where in the essays if needed should i talk abt AWA?

(5) or should i just forget MBA

Thanks

Yogaman

I am not sure how important AWA is. But based on comments here and even on other sites/text it appears that AWA is not really significant.

Dont worry, go ahead and apply!

Yeah it's not really that significant. I you got a 2 on your AWA and had essays that looked Shakespearean, that would probably raise eyebrows, but a 3.5 won't really hurt you.
