You have too many safe schools in your list. Drop a few. Recommended breakdown is 2-3 safes, 3 mods and 3-4 ambi schools. If you can retake the GRE and get a better score (read: more than 320), you might even crack the likes of Berkeley with your profile.

Thanks a lot @The_Observer. Great help !
SJSU EM I have in mind as the safest.
May I please know why you have suggested to drop Santa Clara considering the location and job perspective also(with he little feedback i have got from random sources) ?

Also, if you wish to suggest any other university for MIS/IS apart from the ones listed, kindly help with the same.

And for revising the list, definitely I will work on the same.
