Retaking the Toefl, does it affect my chances ?

Hello everyone,

I am planning to apply to an LL.M degree next fall, however, I am still studying English in order to get a good score. The question as I mentioned above, if I take the TOEFL several times, will this affect my application ? Will law schools be able to know about my previous scores ?

Thanks

If you instructed ETS to submit your test scores to LSAC,they will forward it to any law school you've already applied for. Notice that this will happen even if your new test's scores are lower than the previous one.

"Once LSAC receives a TOEFL or IELTS score, it cannot be deleted or replaced. There are no exceptions. If we already have a score on file for you, and you take the test again and have the new score sent to us, we will include both scores in your law school report. The new score will not replace the previous score, no matter how long ago the previous score was reported. LSAC will include on your law school report all English proficiency scores we receive.

If we receive your TOEFL or IELTS score(s) after your law school report has been completed and/or released to a participating law school, we will update your report to reflect your TOEFL/IELTS results free of charge. The updated report will automatically be forwarded to the school(s) that previously received your report."
