A question about rolling admissions [#permalink] New post 12 Jan 2007, 01:36
I attended to Stern's info session in September. They said that TOEFL was not needed for applicants who got their undergrad degree from an English instructing university. Because I fit in this category, I did not take TOEFL exam, only took GMAT and got a good score. However, through mails, Stern told me although it is not needed, TOEFL is strongly recommended. I decided to take the exam, but there were no rooms available for R2 deadline. So, I got a date for TOEFL at January 19th. R2 Deadline is January 15th.

I asked Stern that can I apply for R2 and send my TOEFL score later. They said that they use a rolling admissions process. What does this mean?

Is it possible for me to apply for R2 deadline and send my TOEFL later?

I got everything else all set. This is killing me!

was your verbal score on GMATS very low or did you do very poorly in an english class in undergrad?

Those were the only reasons why I could imagine Stern encouraging you to take TOEFL. If I were you I'd make sure I submit my application on time and not worry about TOEFL, unless sentence 1 applies to you

Info below is from stern's website. If you are still concerned, look into the English Language Proficiency mentioned below :
Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

All applicants whose native language is not English and who have not received a university degree in an English-speaking country must take the TOEFL in addition to the GMAT.
For applicants from countries where English is not the primary spoken language but is the primary language used in education, such as India and Singapore, the TOEFL is not required.
In place of the TOEFL, you may take the English Language Proficiency Test from the American Language Institute at New York University.

I got a GMAT 710 (Q49/V37)

Not too bad, I hope.

I would apply to R2 without the exam.

It's not required so you don't need it.

I would mention it in the optional essay. Just say you think you should be waived from the TOEFL because you got your degree in the US (and you got a B in English classes.)

Only talk about your English class if you got a B or better.

I would even say you went to an info session and asked so and so and they said it was not required.


Also, hopefully you were asking these question to the adcomm in confidence. If so, I would change your email. Pretend like you read the instructions and just followed them.
