Hi fellow Gmatclubbers,

I decided to prepare a quick reference list with the minimum TOEFL requirements for most popular schools. Hope it will be of some use!

TOEFL score requirements for various schools
(work in progress)

Notes:
1. All requirements are for TOEFL iBT format, unless specified otherwise
2. All information was taken from official schools’ sites.
3. Even if school does not have an official cut-off score, or if this score seems ridiculously low, it is an applicant’s interest to check an average score of the accepted students in order to form a realistic understanding of what is required.
4. Overall, it seems you will be OK with 100 for the vast majority of schools, but you will need closer to at least 110 for the most competitive ones.

TOEFL Requirements for US Schools
SchoolTOEFL ScoreNotes
Harvard109strongly recommended by adcom
Stanford100
WhartonRequiredno cut-off score; average is given as 111
MITNot Requiredmay be included if an applicant wishes to do so
Chicago Booth104otherwise ‘admission would be contingent upon meeting the minimum scores or other language requirements’
– info from their site
KelloggRequiredno cut-off score specified. Note that average is 109 (2011)
ColumbiaRequiredno cut-off score specified
TuckRequiredno cut-off score specified
Berkeley (Haas)68note that average given for reference is 113
Michigan (Ross)100
Duke (Fuqua)Requiredno cut-off score specified
Darden100not a strict requirement
Yale100
NYU SternRequiredno cut-off score specified
Cornell JohnsonRequiredrequire 600 for old paper-based tests (with 5 in TWE), which corresponds to 100 in new format (with 25 in Writing)
UCLA (Anderson)87they note that you should have a good excuse for anything below 100
CMU (Tepper)Requiredno min score for TOEFL iBT is given, but they specify 600 for old Paper-Based test, so I think it’s 100 for iBT




TOEFL Requirements for Top European Schools
SchoolTOEFL ScoreNotes
IMDNot RequiredTOEFL is not required, but there is general requirement of ‘strong command of spoken and written English’
(evaluated through GMAT, essays and interview I guess)
INSEAD105note that those for whom English is native language, must show knowledge of another language as entry requirement
LBSRequiredno specific ‘cut-off’ score is specified. Last year, there was an unofficial recommendation of 109+, but people with lesser scores could get in.
IE100
IESE100Note that IESE requires 100 for its FT MBA and 93 for its Executive MBA
HEC100Alternatively you can present IELTS score of 6.5 or TOIEC score of 850





TOEFL Requirements for UK Schools
SchoolTOEFL ScoreNotes
Ashridge100
Cambridge (Judge)110min 25 in each section
Cass105
Cranfield100
Manchester100no individual element must be below 20
Oxford (Said)109this is new requirement for 2010
Warwick105

I got my score today with Reading 18,Listening 22,speaking 24 & Writing 28, a total of 92.
Please suggest me whether sectional cutoffs are required by the universities, and even if they require then do i need to take the test again keeping in mind that i have 18 in Reading?

Please suggest!

Hi

I have seen that Warton average score is 111, but do you think I will have any trouble if I score 108 or 109? Just to know if i should prepare the exam a little more

Thank you

Don't think so. The average is 111, which means that ca. half of the admitted students scored a bit below 111. So my guess is that you will be fine with 108, let alone 109.

Thank you guys :)
But I think it's also important not to forget that some schools don't explicitly mention any cut-off mark but they do consider the marks when they view the student's application documents... and I've heard that for some schools with "no cut-off specified", actually you'd better do your best to have over 100 (in iBT format) or you'll have much less chance than the others to be chosen...

Great list. I took the TOEFL twice and got perfect scores. It was still a bit hard to get used to the fast pace at school, so I'd worry about keeping up with a low score...
