TOEFL Requirements


SFC

Hi everyone, I got a 98 score in my last TOEFL exam and all Law Schools I would like to apply for a LLM (UPENN, GTOWN, BERKELEY, CHICAGO...) require a minimum of 100. I took a semester in US during my graduate studies of Law with a great GPA and some Law Schoold give a waiver of TOEFL in similar situations.

I would like to apply in the early application schedule because everybody tell me its better. Do you know which univesities are really strict with the TOEFL scores? or if a 98 score will be a problem?

Thnks

Columbia University School of Law requires the following:

TOEFL iBT: 105 overall score, 26 on Reading and Listening sections and 24 on the Speaking and Writing sections;
Paper-based exam: 620 overall score, 59/60 on the Structure/Writing and Reading sections, 60/61 on the Listening section, and 5.0 on the TWE.

"If your scores fall below these levels, your chances of admission could be adversely impacted even if other factors in your application are strong. You must decide whether to repeat the test based on how far below these scores your results fall; we cannot make this decision for you."

I guess those standards are similar for other universities as well, although they might vary from school to school.
