TOEFL sub-section dilemma


I meet the minimum overall score requirement but I slipped slightly below the 25 mark on the listening part. How bad is that going to look on my application? Should I still go ahead applying (e.g. to Columbia) with these scores if my other credentials are decent enough?

Hey, I do have the same situation. I meet the overall per over 5 points (105 over 100) but I scored 22 in the speaking part (out of 23). I'm struggling if I just have to try applying with this score or take already another TOEFL test.

Thanks for any advice!

I've heard that some law schools are not so strict about sub-scores. Actually, my peers got matriculation from Harvard, Columbia etc. with TOEFL scores which don't meet the sub-score requirement.

I got into Georgetown meeting the overall score but missing on some point on the sub tests. I think USA schools are flexible with this. British school are not.

Go ahead and apply!

This year I'm certain that law schools will be more flexible on these accounts. However, it's best to actually meet the requirements before applying, no?

How about Cambridge? How flexible they are? I have received a conditional offer but still struggling with the requirement in the speaking section (narrow miss of one point). Before submitting my results, I'd like to check and get more insights. Many thanks!
