Context: I'm an undergraduate in a Canadian university and I'm applying to grad school this year.
I just realised that 2 schools that I'm applying to (Princeton and MIT, just in case anyone know how these particular schools handle this kind of case) exempts my TOEFL requirement only if I attend an English speaking university for at least 3 years. Unfortunately I'm going to graduate in 2 years and 8 months (I started in September 2016 and will finish in April 2019). This is a full degree that usually take 4-5 years to complete (as in I didn't transfer into my current university from another non-english speaking uni). Do you think they'll still waive my TOEFL requirement? If not will they at least consider my application as it is? Idk if this helps but I am certain that my letter writers can testify that my english is adequate.
Update: Both school waived my TOEFL requirement. It turns out that what they meant by 3 years is 3 academic years.
