What is the cut off TSE score of US universities?

Each US university determines its own cut off scores. Moreover, some departments have their own cut off limits. For example, the Computer Science department may have a different cut off score limit than the English department of the same university. You should check the minimum TSE score required with each college / university you are applying to.
