    Re: I wrote the abbreviation "Dr." with "d".Big mistake?

    Quite frankly, I do not think that one typo is going to cost you a scholarship.

    You ask if your score is good enough. That depends entirely on the institution wanting your TOEFL score. Different institutions require different minimum scores for different purposes.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    By the way, does anyone know about the cost of living in the USA? I am interesting for the University of Tennessee.

    My scholarship will be approximately 1070 euros per month (1400 dollars). Can someone live comfortable with the above money at Tennessee?

    That would be a B1 level according to CEFR.

    Is that ONLY for your living expenses? You don't need to use that for tuition, books, fees, etc.?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Only for my living expenses.

    The educational expenses will be covered separately (again from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation).

    You can look online for school-provided options, such as this page: UT Knoxville | University Housing

    Students often find a way to live pretty cheaply. $4000 a semester would be almost $1000 a month. Most students can find off-campuses apartments that they share.

    If you contact the financial aid office at your campus, they can provide a typical graduate student budget that includes realistic living expenses.

    With $1400, you should be okay.
