Jolie717 Posted October 31, 2015 Share Posted October 31, 2015 While I am not particularly surprised, I am disappointed by my AW score of 4.0 (just found out today). AW was the one area I did not practice at all as I was more concerned with my verbal and quant scores. However, now that I have decided to add some combined MS/PhD programs to my application list, I am wondering if my current score will hurt me.I am a decent writer when I have time to compose my thoughts and/or have knowledge on a topic. But timed "surprise" topic essays are apparently not my friend.If I decide to retake I will only have six weeks to prep. I am pretty sure I can get my quant score up in this time as well considering I didn't spend much time reviewing the math I haven't seen in years (OK - 2+ decades, lol). If it makes a difference I am a full time student (senior) and I would need to still maintain my current GPA, work 16 hours per week, spend time with my sons and hubby and study for the GRE all at the same time. Again. Ugh.Thoughts? Does anyone have experience raising AW in a short period of time? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
