NYU and UB would be ambi, SJSU and GSU would be safe, Syracuse would be safe-mod, IUB, UIC, UTD, USC would be mods, and I recommend dropping NCSU from the list (too ambi).

Thanks a lot for taking some time out and replying, I updated the technologies I worked on adjacent to my work experience.

I had published one paper in final year of my engineering, I have the the certificate of the same. However, the publication's website shut down two months ago so now there is no online presence of the same for univ to cross check. So I didnt mention it.

Any other safe universities that you can suggest? The_Observer
I would be grateful.
3 safes is more than enough, in my opinion. If you want to add more, please use the UniSearch and UniSuggest systems here on Edulix, and go through other threads here to find out which ones have been recommended as safes for other CS applicants. We won't serve stuff up on a silver platter here - do you own legwork. Once you identify a set of schools you think you might want to apply to, go through each university and each program's website, and see if you really like the coursework offered and the research being conducted there and then come post that list here. Doing all this is solely your responsibility as a prospective graduate applicant, so I recommend you get to it ASAP.
Thanks a lot for the reply.
