Help!! Engineering TOEFL minimum :(

<p>Hi everyone, I'm a senior who has only been in US for 2 years, so I have to take TOEFL(since I didn't meet 550 on CR...)</p>

<p>I got 2050 (CR 520 W 730(essay 12) M 800) on SAT.</p>

<p>What I'm worrying is that I got 99 on TOEFL (R 25, L 27, S 22, W 25), which is 1 point below the minimum... Will UIUC ECE reject me directly regardless of other factors...? Time doesn't allow me to retake it :(</p>

<p>I have
GPA: 3.83(UW, school doesn't do weight)
SAT II: Math II 800, Physics 800, Chem 730
AP: Calc BC 5 (AB Sub 5). Physics C Mech 4. E&M 5. Chem 5
and a lot of good ECs(3 clubs leadership. violin state orchestra (also state qualified, 3 champions in my home country, and school orchestra 1st). swimming team. volunteering > 500 hrs, summer programs, also I start private tutoring on AP calculus)</p>

<p>and I have 21 college courses this year (from freshman level to junior level, mostly in Physics. Math and Engineering)</p>

<p>is this real?? i have much lower score than you do but just meet the standard you mentioned, 550 on CR. I got exactly 550 on CR but i never heard of that it is a standard in UIUC for those who are applying to engineering. And I got 97 on the TOEFL, 3 points below the minimum?</p>

<p>I have a friend who got the same score on your SAT but with a 93 on the TOEFL got into UIUC for priority ( account major). are you sure that there is a minimum?</p>

<p>The requirement is like you can either</p>

<p>(1) Have completed all secondary (years 9-12) and post-secondary schooling in Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Great Britain, Ireland, New Zealand, or the United States (excluding Puerto Rico). OR (2) Have scored at least 25 on the ACT English portion or a 550 on the SAT I Critical Reading portion. ACT or SAT scores that will be used to fulfill the English proficiency requirement must be taken within two years of the student’s date of enrollment in the University.</p>

<p>or </p>

<p>(1) Have scored a minimum of 79 on the internet-based (ibt) Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The Colleges of Business, Engineering and Media require a minimum score of 100 ibt. OR (2) Have scored a minimum of 6.5 total score on the International English Testing System (IELTS) with a minimum score of 6 on all four modules.</p>

<p>It's not the "standard" definitely; what I'm really worried about is that word "minimum" :(</p>

<p>Call admissions and ask your question. What you'll get here is opinions, but what you need is an answer. They take calls in admissions all the time. Call them.</p>
