Bad AW score

Post by Applied B-T » Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:11 am

I did well on the general GRE (96% Q, 98% V) except for a bad writing score (4.0 which is around 60%). How much will this hurt my application at top schools? I can retake it and probably improve if need be, but I don't really want to give ETS any more of my time or money. This is the only glaring weakness in my application as far as I can tell.

I think you will be fine, they don't really care about these scores. I personally know people who got into Stanford with a 3/6 so a 4/6 will probably not be the determining factor on whether or not you get accepted.

(besides, your Verbal score is impressively high so I think that alone will clear any suspicions of your English skills, which is what the general test is mostly about anyway.)
