TOEFL SCORE 107 - Should I retake?  [#permalink]

Hello,

I scored 107 on the TOEFL (R29, L30, S23, W25).
My GMAT score is 730 (Q49 V41) 8 IR 5.5 AWA.

Should I retake in order to apply for HBS MBA? or this score is enough?

Few more questions about the TOEFL:

1. I scored on the GMAT AWA 5.5, but only 25 on the TOEFL. Can it be that the TOEFL puts more attention on grammer and spelling mistakes while the GMAT puts more attention on analitical writing and content?

2. Are speaking templates recommended?

Hi,

Congrats for getting 107 that's a really good score.
However, if you are going to apply to HBS. I'd recommend you to retake the test and aim for 109 or more.

Quote from HBS website.
Quote:
HBS does not have a minimum test score to apply, however, the MBA Admissions Board discourages any candidate with a TOEFL score lower than 109 on the IBT, an IELTS score lower than 7.5, or a PTE score lower than 75 from applying.



For writing I think TOEFL focus more on structure and grammar than GMAT AWA.
From your GMAT score I think with a little practice you could increase your writing score.

Regarding the speaking template. There ain't general consensus. Some swear by it, while some think it limit your score.
Since I only got 22 in speaking, I don't think I can comment that much on the speaking.
