Planning to apply for MS in CS for the Fall 2018 semester. Inclined towards specializing in distributed systems and networks.

Profile in brief -
GRE - 329 (Q - 165, V - 164)
CGPA - 8.9 (Topper's CGPA is 9.7, so my seemingly good CGPA is not so good after all)
TOEFL - 113 (Speaking - 23, Others - 30)
Work experience - ~ 18 months as a software engineer while applying.
A few academic/independent projects, none that stand out (details in my unisearch profile)

Universities I have longlisted, based on unisuggest and other sources -

NCSU
University of Utah
SUNY Stony Brook
SUNY Buffalo
Northeastern
UTD
San Jose State University
University of Maryland, Baltimore County
Georgia State
George Mason
Syracuse

Can someone please categorise these for me? If NCSU, Stony Brook, and Uni of Utah are too ambi for me, I will drop them.

My utter lack of research experience is weighing me down, but there's not much I can do at this point, except be satisfied with slightly lower ranked universities. Cost is also a major factor for me, so I need to apply to places where I have a non trivial chance of getting some funding.

My unisearch profile - http://www.edulix.com/unisearch/user.php?uid=301870

On a slightly unrelated note, should I retake TOEFL? I have 23 on the Speaking part, and that part is apparently crucial for getting teaching assistantships.
