TypeA Posted September 12, 2011 Share Posted September 12, 2011 Let me preface with saying that this is not a thread about deciding whether or not to retake the GRE. It's an exercise in genuine curiosity. There's a multitude of threads on here about people getting lower scores on the analytical writing section than they anticipated, or scores that seem incongruent with their verbal scores. The general consensus seems to be that anything over a 3.5/4/4.5 (depending on your field) is acceptable, and adcomms easily dismiss the AW score, because it's a crapshoot and the SoP serves as a writing sample (or the application may actually call for a writing sample). So in your opinion, does this mean that there really isn't any benefit to scoring a 5.5 or 6.0? Discuss. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
