Some good news! I’ve scored 109 in TOEFL! Enough for any top business school :). I was very concerned about not getting 104, the required minimum of Chicago Booth.
I’m very happy, this score was my ultimate goal.
The breakdown is:
– Reading: 29/30
– Listening: 29/30
– Speaking: 22/30
– Writing: 29/30
I’m a bit disappointed with the speaking score (worse than my previous attempt in March), as I think I did much better this time. I hope it’s nothing related with the microphone as during the exam I had to change it several times as no one worked fine (remember the story about the exam conditions).
However, I think the score is fair and the breakdown shows the reality of my English level. The speaking is by far the point I should improve from now to the beginning of the MBA. I will concentrate on that once I’m done with the applications.
This score may help me decide to apply to Harvard (its requirement is 109). Honestly Harvard is not my top choice, but well, it’s still Harvard… I will see if the application is easy and doesn’t need too much effort.
