The TOEFL is unlike other standardized tests in terms of how it is considered by universities. Educational Testing Service (ETS), the outfit that administers the exam, has not established any official scoring benchmarks. This means that passing scores are set by universities, schools, departments, and degree programs, and these passing scores are generally all that is required (students usually do not derive any additional admissions benefits for exceeding the institutional minimums). Universities compete for students and the tuition dollars they bring, and TOEFL standards therefore vary widely. They can range from an extreme high of 110 to an extreme low of 60 (in some cases even lower). TOEFL students must make sure they understand the TOEFL expectations of their degree programs, which may not be the same as the requirements of the school or division. Furthermore, some programs have benchmarks for the individual TOEFL sections in addition to total score requirements. For most undergraduate or graduate students, a total score of 100 and section scores of 25 each will be convincing evidence of sufficient English language abilities and therefore good enough for acceptance.

Manhattan Review's professional TOEFL instruction has produced passing TOEFL scores for thousands of students worldwide. Among the schools to which our TOEFL clients have been accepted at the undergraduate and graduate levels are Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Cornell, Brown, Columbia, the University of Chicago, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, the California Institute of Technology, the University of Southern California, Oxford, Cambridge, the London School of Economics, King's College London, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Toronto. Our former TOEFL students have experienced strong employment outcomes, and they have become successful professionals in numerous fields. Fortune 500 companies, including State Farm Insurance, Berkshire Hathaway, Lockheed Martin, Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Exxon Mobil, have hired our past students, as have Pasadena companies such as Pardee Homes, BuddhaBro, Courthouse News Service, Red Hen Press, and CPO Commerce. With improved language skills, international students can accomplish whatever they wish.
