    Hey everybody,

    I am keen on study at the Imperial College London (course: Strategic Marketing), but unfortunately I just have a TOEFL Score of 94. I have already reset it two times and 94 was my highest score. I am aware that people may question whether it would make sense to study in english although my english seems not to be very good. But I am sure that I can make it.

    As I do not think that I will reset my TOEFL one more time because of funding problems, as well as the uncertainty whether I will get at least 100 I would like to apply with my Score of 94. Do you think that I may have a chance?

    I have passed my undergradute (Business Administation) in only five semester (german middle score university) with a german grade average of 1.8 (converted in gpa: 3.5). Furthermore I have done 4 internships, studied abroad (4month), I hold a scholarship and engaged social in a project for 1 year of a Also, my academic reference are pretty good. I am really very keen on study at the ICL.
    I know from other Schools (e.g. MBS) that they still take a application with a TOEFL below 100 into consideration. Do you think that I should try it or are you sure that a TOEFL Score below is a K.O.-criteria. One more advantage of might be also my bilingual background (German Born Chinese). The school also offers a pre-english-course which will cost 2000 pounds. How about the likelihood to pass it succesfully?

    Finally, can you tell me whether an application next week will be to late? I will receive my references during the mid of the next week.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I can't really help, unless to say, why not try the IELTS test instead of the TOEFL? I did mine almost 2 years ago, and I expected it to be much more demanding. If you consider doing it, why not apply and say you're waiting for the IELTS test results? ( I don't know if that is possible for graduate, I know it is for undergraduate).
    Hope I helped a bit.
