Hi Erin,
I asked you about the correctness of the following two sentences.
"I get diverted even with the slightest of sounds."
By studying alone a person can estimate his true intelligence and ability"
I had written these two sentences in my essay.So does that mean that I am going to get the lowest possible score in the essay.
My range is 217-273.What is going to be my score if I get a 3 in essay.

Actually, for a TOEFL essay, those sentences are very nice, somewhat poetic, but it's difficult to assess the entire essay on the basis of these two sentences without knowing the topic of the essay. Anyway, I know you're dying to hear what I have to say, I'd guess you'll get at least a 4.0 (just a guess, okay???).

Could you tell us your score when you get it? It'd be helpful to know and share with others.

If you get a 3.0 on your essay, you'll be right in the middle of that range.

Hope that helps!
