    I got 650 in the GMAT.
    I completely messed up the verbal section, though the quant was fine. AWA results should be out soon but that wasn't good either.
    Do I have any chance at LSE for MSc A&F and Finance?

    As far as i know they require 650+. Thus it all depends on your undegraduate degree, GPA, PS etc.
    I got in MSc A&F with 720 GMAT and 3.6 GPA

    650+? So then it's worth applying?
    Do they give more importance to quant than verbal?

    On my first try i got 640 and called them up and asked, they told me that one needs atleast 650 to apply. From what i've read, score of 700+ gives you a significant advantage, otherwise it is considered OK.

    Okay, so since I have 650, perhaps I should give it a try?
    I heard that quant scores are more important that verbal........I hope that's true.

    Is it true that the quant carries more weight than verbal?

    Anyone who says that GRE/GMAT is the be-all and end-all of an application doesn't know what they're talking about. I recently got into LSE MSc Finance (a very competitive course) with a pretty average GRE score of 770 quant, 560 verbal and 4.0 awa. As long as you have decent grades to offset it then you're fine (I had 1st class, with a GPA of around 3.8, and 4.0 (straight A+ grades) in finance papers).

    I have seen so many people on forums saying things along the lines of "don't bother applying with less than 800 quant", which is just straight BS.

    My grades in quant modules were not good, but I did fine in quant in the gmat. Verbal pulled my score down.
    I have finance papers this year, so they can't take those into account.
    I read that some people with less than 650 got in, even though LSE has stated on their site that they wants atleast 650.

    .....

    also how important is awa?

    Why not just redo it? Or do you not have enough time?
