Hello,
I was wondering how strict ICO is regarding their toefl exam requirement for non-native speaker. I've been living in the states for 13 years, completed hs and 4 year degree in the states as well. I did fairly decent on the reading comp on the oat(340). Would they consider waiving this? Anybody with any experience in this?
Thanks a bunch!

Thanks, I actually talked to them. Apparently it's common to get it waived and all you need to do is submit a formal business letter along with your supplemental indicating why you think you shouldn't have to take the exam.

ps: I'm not sure about other ppl, but for me personally- ICO takes the longest of all the schools to reply to me. It took them about 10 days to reply to each email. Calling is definitely more efficient (unless it's something you want to have written down to keep for your record).
