Congratulations on your scores Smile

I am not familiar with UCI cut-offs in the ICS, but your profile should be well within range. Considering your experience and scores, all of the ones you mentioned are gettable. Cincinnati is highly beneficial to people from SAP background.

Try looking into SUNY buffalo.

Thanks for the reply .
I will look into the curriculum of SUNY Buffalo. Any other university?
Also, I am bit worried about my CGPA.


You can look into the usual suspects- UTD, NJIT and OSU.

Do not worry about the GPA. I have seen people who have had lower GPA, scores, and experience get a seat (not that it guarantees you one). Present yourself well in the SoP, focus on your work ex and any certificates and appreciation you have received to take away the focus on GPA.

Also, the uncertainty is hurting enrollment in a lot of universities. So, that might work in your favor too. Do not let your guard down.

You should be able to get it Smile
UWash, UT-Austin, Kelley would be a good addition to the list.

Universities shortlisted:
MISM CMU
MSIS University of cincinnati
MIS UIC
UIUC
MS in [/align]Information and Computer Sciences UCI

Not sure of UCI,rest are safe.

NYU MSIS is a two-year course
I may be Naive to ask this but why MIS instead of CS?

I say this because of "4 years in Programming(C++, PHP, web, scripting)"

Preference is one-year course but I am open to a two-year course as well based on a university reputation and ranking.
