    Do I have less possibilities of beinig accepted into Sheridan?

    I have recently applied for the art fundamentals course of january 2019. I'm a foreigner, so one of the documents that I need to upload is the proof of english proficiency. I made the TOEFL IBT test a week ago, and I got a score of 88 points. The minimum required for Sheridan is 88 points.
    So since I got the minimum score, do I have less possibilites of being accepted? Should I take another TOEFL exam to see If I get a higher score? Thanks for any help you can give.

    Hard to imagine that TOEFL score is a big deal: as far as I know portfolio is most important. However, if you have a weak portfolio, and end up on a stack with equally weak portfolios, then your TOEFL may come into play.

    In many cases, tests of English proficiency are partly an administrative requirement. I'd say it's just a binary accept/refuse variable, and should not play further part in your admission process. Now, I don't know how that individual school works, but all art schools I know of grade only based on your artistic merit. I'd shoot them a mail, if you're worried, but I wouldn't be if I were you
