how much does the writing section actually count?

<p>I know that colleges are starting to post writing section ranges on, but how much weight do they give the writing section in comparison to the other two?</p>

<p>Probably not as much as the other two sections, but it's still important. If your writing score doesnt correspond with your M and CR, it could be a problem</p>

<p>it didn't count as much for the first 2 years but now, colleges have enough data so colleges probably count them all equally now.</p>

<p>I was told at school yesturday that in my state, most colleges are not taking it into account yet. My second-choice school, which is in Indiana, does not consider it at all, unforunately for me.</p>
