TOEFL


Minion

Hi everyone,

I just did my TOEFL test today. Unfortunately I only scored a 23 on reading and a 25 on listening whereas I need 26 on both in order to be considered for admission to NYU. In addition, I was stupid enough to register LSAC as a score recipient and also not cancel my test because I did I could do that in LSAC later. After I went home, I found out that you cannot cancel a TOEFL test in LSAC. Thus, this bad score will be sent to NYU. My question is now if anyone knows if this can impact your candidacy?

Thanks in advance.

Hello! 

I did the same thing and my first option is NYU. What a coincidence! 
I do not think this is a problem. The grade it’s gonna be on your LSAC account, but you are the one that choose what score you are gonna report to which school. 
At least that is what I understood and what I am hoping for hahah
good luck!

I sent my applications last month. For what I have noticed, you cannot choose which grade to send to the universities, LSAC includes all your English proficiency grades in your report. Nevertheless, in the university's application form you can choose what grade to inform. 


However, I do not think having an insufficient first score is something you should worry about if you achieve a good score afterwards.

Hi Mariana,

As from what I understood you can not choose which TOEFL test you want to report to the specific law schools. LSAC’s policy is to include all the test results they have received from TOEFL.
