Hi ronash ,

Congratulations for crossing 700 barrier. :)

Well, looking at the B Schools you are targeting, I dont think its going to be problem at all. AWA score won't impact much for these schools.

I would prefer working on other parts of the applications now and make a strong case for yourself.

All the best :)

Hi Ronash
Congratulations for 710. your AWA is really low but i guess if you write some really good essays you can cover this low score. GMAT score does matter but your application also has values from essays to recommendation letters. arnt you going to TOEFL or IELTS? if you can show some good score in these tests then i think you will be good.

Congrats for crossing 700 +.
AWA scores usually dont effect the admissions
Any how, you can compensate for this on the Essays

Hi ronash,

To start, a 710/Q50 is an outstanding score - and you should certainly apply to any Schools that interest you! You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of them here:

http://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admission ... tants-124/

If you were applying to US Schools, then your AWA might be an issue. Most US Schools expect applicants to score at least a 4.0 (out of 6.0) on the AWA, but I don't know how any individual School outside of the US would view the AWA Score (or if there would be any 'requirements' regarding that score).

Thanks for the information.

I think it is better for me to proceed with my applications.
The only doubt that I have is that even if I apply to an US school will they reject my application only on basis of AWA score or is there something I can do to counter the low score.

Regards
ronash

I doubt they'll reject your application solely on the basis of your AWA score, but I don't think it'll help you either, especially if you're applying to the top schools. At the end of the day, you're better off asking your schools and/or admissions consultants directly.

Hi

As for as your selected school is concerned your score is pretty good but if you want to apply to top ten US Business school then you should better improve your Verbal Because a rom is available in your verbal and by improving 6 points in Verbal you Can get a 750 score which is 98%tile

Good Luck

Hi Ronash,

A bit of anecdotal evidence, but one of my friends was accepted to INSEAD with a 3 AWA and a similar overall score. The essays are obviously going to be important to communicate an ability to communicate effectively. Best of luck!
