    4 on AWA - GRE - Should I retake?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hey all,

    I've been really excited about my GRE scores since seeing the 'unofficial' scores when I finished but was disappointed with my AWA that I just received tonight.

    Verbal: 168
    Quant: 167
    AWA: 4

    To give a bit of context this is overall improvement from when I took it last year:

    Verbal: 161
    Quant: 163
    AWA: 4.5

    I plan to apply broadly to the top 30 programs since I'm coming out of an LAC with the knowledge that I may have to take an RA position if I have no luck in my first run with applications.

    Should I think about retaking because of the AWA?
    Thanks!

    My two cents - If you are applying to econ programs, I think the additional 4 points on your quant score is more valuable than the 0.5 on the AWA. So use the scores from this year when applying to grad schools.
