Cautions
  • Not every applicant will have TOEFL score data in this table.

Source

The standard scores come in from multiple sources:
1) from AY or the school admissions batch loads - these scores are self-reported by the applicant,
2) from ETS, in periodic feeds received by Penn -- these official scores are mapped to the applicant information via SSN, name and DOB, and/or by the score matching application in the Graduate Admissions Supplement online system.
