Hello,

I just received my TOEFL score:
Total: 107
Listening: 29
Speaking: 23
Writing: 28

I am applying to the HBS 2+2 program and they state that they discourage student with lower than 109 to apply...
My options are:
1) Apply anyway
2) Request rescore which will take 3 weeks and hope that they will increase my speaking score with 2 points.
3) Retake it.

The deadline is so close I can only do one of the options... How much weigh do they put on this test? If invited to interview I guess I can prove my speaking skills anyway. Although, I am afraid my application gets cut out because it is lower than 109... Please give me some advice!

Hi hoffeman:

To be frank, retake the TOEFL. This is a fairly straight forward expected outcome equation.
If you ask for a rescore, the probably that the score increases in minimal. Do not leave it in the hands of the scorer.

If you retake the exam, you have more control over the process and with some brush up, you should be able to increase your score.

At the end of the day, beyond other application components, HBS is not the place to come up short on standardized test scores. They have so many top applicants applying that few fall short on the numbers. High GMAT scores and TOEFL performances are expected.

So keep your head down, study a few more weeks and then get the app in.

Respectfully,
Paul
