I will be applying for Ph.D. in chemical engineering in FALL'19. I have just received my TOEFL score and my overall score is 110. (R-28, L-30, S-23, W-29). However, in the university website of UIUC and UCLA, although the overall minimum score is 87, the cutoff for speaking section is 24. As you can see my overall score is much greater than the minimum requirement, but my speaking score is one mark less than the requirement. Will it interfere with my application process? Or should I need to retake the TOEFL again? Please let me know regarding the same.
Hi! I'm wondering if anyone has had success making money and in getting published by doing speaking engagements in their area of study or if it has helped them get a job after grad school. Seems like there would be lots of institutions, orgs, and businesses interested in speakers that aren't so expensive, but are still experts (about to graduate PhDs!). Thoughts?
