    Depends on the college. Some don't count it at all; some weigh it the same as CR/M.

    True. Just don't have a big drop in your score from CR and M to W. It's just another factor. And the fact they have a written essay on the section is used to compare to your college app essay so that they know you wrote it. That's probably the biggest thing they use the writing section for.
