You can look up this information at math (and/or applied math) departments. According to Berkeley, you need at least a 68 on the TOEFL.

For instance, here is the info on Berkeley's math department website: http://math.berkeley.edu/programs/graduate/admissions

Sometimes, math departments at other universities sometimes list this info as well.

Hi again guys,
Thanks for your answer,
But :?
I meant whether my score can be enough when it meets minimum requirement for Department or not? for example, UCSD or UC Davis needs 80 for math department and with this condition is it possible for me to get admission with such resume?

I checked math departments requirements and all my destination universities needs toefl score equal or less than 80. Now, can I get admission with full fund or not?
