Do I need to take TOEFL for HBS? (with master degree in US) [#permalink] New post 12 Oct 2013, 13:43
I got my bachelor degree in a university where english is not the major language of instruction, but have a master degree from a top US university. Though HBS "strongly advise" applicant to take the TOEFL (not required), I wonder if not submitting a test score would negatively affect my application? Does anyone have a similar situation? thx for the advice!

Go ahead and take it and make it a non-issue. What you don't want is for them to notice it's absence, and then put the rest of your application under a microscope to determine if you have the proficiency they need (even though, from your post, you clearly do).

So to just put the issue to bed quickly and definitively, take the test, knock it out of the park, and make it just a "check the box" component.

Also, as a general rule of thumb, if a school "strongly advises" anything, chances are you should do it (tests, visits, etc.).

Cheers,

Bhavik
