TOEFL Waiver

Post Fri Dec 16, 2011 12:40 am
Hi

To give you some context, I have done all my schooling in a English medium school. During my 3 year under graduation from University of Delhi,India, the sole language of instruction was English. I have also worked with UBS for almost a year in the investment banking division in India. Even at UBS official language of communication was English. Also the next available date for TOEFL is in February whereas the deadline for most of the college is in January.

The college I am looking at are - Marshall, Kenan-Flagler, Cornell and McCombs.

Do you think I would be offered a TOEFL waiver? I have already posted mails to the Adcom but have not received reply as of now.

Also Kellogg, Ross, Fuqua and Darden say that students with undergrad with English as sole language of instruction are waived from TOEFL. DO i still need to specifically confirm with the Adcom before applying?

Hi All,

I had the same query regarding TOEFL. I am an Indian candidate and am done with my GMAT exam. I have had English as my first language throughout my schooling as well as during graduation. I did write an email to the AdComs of the colleges that I am interested in applying to and fortunately all of them have waived the TOEFL requirement for me.

Am I still required to give the TOEFL?

Best Regards

If you have achieved a score of at least 670 on the Critical Reading section of the SAT exam, there is no need to request a TOEFL waiver. To request a TOEFL waiver based on other acceptable criteria, please write to intl-inquiry@cornell.edu.
The subject of your email should be TOEFL Waiver. Please provide the following information in your email:
* First and last names as they appear on your application.
* Email address used on your application
* Date of Birth
* Reason for requesting a TOEFL waiver
