Scored 99 [#permalink] New post 18 Nov 2011, 21:46
Guys, hi

Most schools have a requirement of 100 points for the international applicants. Do you think that my 99 will be accepted? I'm applying to top 20 schools. While not all of them have 100 point requirement, many of them do. Should I address the issue in a separate essay or mention how I tried to compensate a lower score by practicing or by getting a higher score on verbal part in gmat?

I have taken TOEFL in March of 2010 and, of course, have improved my speaking skills from that time (the lowest subscore was in speaking part). I can retake the test, but I have a decent score in GMAT verbal and, I don't really think that 1 point will matter, though I'm still slightly afraid.

Thank you in advance for your advice
