I would double and triple check to see if those 16 schools require a duolingo, TOEFL or IELTS English score or not. If they do, then I would not waste the application fees to the colleges because if you do not meet their suggested minimum requirements, it would be futile to apply. You will probably not get admitted. If you are mistaken and these schools do not require these tests, then I would still apply.

Typically 100 is the target TOEFL minimum standard which is 120 on the Duolingo test.

Good luck.
