How much do AW scores matter for PhD programs? [#permalink] New post 21 Jul 2018, 19:09
For PhD programs in the social sciences (e.g., political science), how much do the analytical writing scores matter? Do the other sections matter a lot more?

I have limited information about PhD programs in Social sciences, however in Engineering the Quant section scores are more important than verbal and AWA scores. So one can safely extrapolate that in programs like the social sciences the scores in verbal and AWA should be important.

One fail safe way to go ensure this is by asking college admissions office. There is no guarantee the would respond to your enquiry but there is no harm in trying.

In general, GRE scores aren't going to be as important as the other aspects of the graduate application namely recommendations, personal statement, and GPA but low GRE scores bring up all sorts of red flags.
