TOEFL Score "Requirements" for Most Popular School

Post Tue Jul 17, 2012 8:02 pm
Hi folks, I saw this post in another forum and thought it might be helpful to all here too

TOEFL score requirements for various schools
(work in progress)

Notes:
    1. All requirements are for TOEFL iBT format, unless specified otherwise
    2. All information was taken from official schools’ sites.
    3. Even if school does not have an official cut-off score, or if this score seems ridiculously low, it is an applicant’s interest to check an average score of the accepted students in order to form a realistic understanding of what is required.
    4. Overall, it seems you will be OK with 100 for the vast majority of schools, but you will need closer to at least 110 for the most competitive ones.



TOEFL Requirements for US Schools
School TOEFL Score Notes
    Harvard 109 strongly recommended by adcom
    Stanford 100
    Wharton Required no cut-off score; average is given as 111
    MIT Not Required may be included if an applicant wishes to do so
    Chicago Booth 104 otherwise ‘admission would be contingent upon meeting the minimum scores or other language requirements’- info from their site
    Kellogg Required no cut-off score specified. Note that average is 109 (2011)
    Columbia Required no cut-off score specified
    Tuck Required no cut-off score specified
    Berkeley (Haas) 68 note that average given for reference is 113
    Michigan (Ross) 100
    Duke (Fuqua) Required no cut-off score specified
    Darden 100 not a strict requirement
    Yale 100
    NYU Stern Required no cut-off score specified
    Cornell Johnson Required require 600 for old paper-based tests (with 5 in TWE), which corresponds to 100 in new format (with 25 in Writing)
    UCLA (Anderson) 87 they note that you should have a good excuse for anything below 100
    CMU (Tepper) Required no min score for TOEFL iBT is given, but they specify 600 for old Paper-Based test, so I think it’s 100 for iBT




TOEFL Requirements for Top European Schools
School TOEFL Score Notes
    IMD Not Required TOEFL is not required, but there is general requirement of ‘strong command of spoken and written English’
    (evaluated through GMAT, essays and interview I guess)
    INSEAD 105 note that those for whom English is native language, must show knowledge of another language as entry requirement
    LBS Required no specific ‘cut-off’ score is specified. Last year, there was an unofficial recommendation of 109+, but people with lesser scores could get in.
    IE 100
    IESE 100 Note that IESE requires 100 for its FT MBA and 93 for its Executive MBA
    HEC 100 Alternatively you can present IELTS score of 6.5 or TOIEC score of 850






TOEFL Requirements for UK Schools
School TOEFL Score Notes
    Ashridge 100
    Cambridge (Judge) 110 min 25 in each section
    Cass 105
    Cranfield 100
    Manchester 100 no individual element must be below 20
    Oxford (Said) 109 this is new requirement for 2010
    Warwick 105
