Linda: (I have posted the same under "My MBA Game Plan"
This post may be bit out of scope! but need some help here!
My GMAT is 710 (Q50, V36) AWA 4
But my TOEFL is 257
Will this TOEFL score hamper my chances to schools like Harvard??
Though the HBS says I need minimum score of 253, but my question is shall I re-take TOEFL or it is not required in the current situation(As I already cross the minimum barrier for HBS (Though just border line case))
Please advice? (Bit confused here!!)
That is a border-line TOEFL. If you believe you can raise it, then the safer way to go is to take it again and raise it. If you feel you did as well as you can, then write great essays, interview well, and ask your recommenders to comment positively on your communications. In other words, demonstrate English fluency in another way.
