I was wondering is anyone can tell me what is the lowest/most satisfying score in TOEFL iBT exam for applying to Masters program in the USA? You can go from top schools to safety ones. Any information is more than welcome. It is for research program, non-degree one. Thank you!

I'd suggest you go on the websites of programs that you are interested in and check for yourself. There are tons of schools and most data people here could give you will not be relevant for your needs. Regardless, I don't think that choosing a program based on its toefl score requirement is a good strategy.

The grad school will usually have a minimum toefl requirement which you can find on the university website under "prospective students" or "admissions"; most requirements I have seen were for scores of 80 to 100+, sometimes asking specifically for a minimum score in one or more of the the exam's parts. On top of that, some departments have their own requirements which are higher than the university-wide minimum.

Well, no, I was not based on TOEFL when I did research for the programs I'd like to attend, but still, I was wondering what is the "normal" average. Thank you for your response, it will be easier for me to work on the test now that I know that the score usually requested is about 90.

Thank you!
