    Hi there, does anybody know how important the essays in the GMAT are? I read some books and there seem to be separate scores for essays. Do schools have a lookt at them?

    Cheers

      Hey Tobo,
      the essay scores in the GMAT will only be considered as decision criteria if two applicants have the same GMAT score. However, a really low essay score makes a bad impression, since the preparation for the essays is pretty simple.

      Cheers
