Hey guys, need help for university shortlisting.

GRE: 329 (168Q 161V)
TOEFL: 114 (29,29,26,30)
University: VJTI, Mumbai
CGPA: 8.85 (toppers: 9.3)

I had created a thread before but have now updated my new gre score and profile.
Please take a look and review my profile.

Looking for MS in CS and specialization as data science (or related courses like ML)

DMBS Project to automate the VJTI university admission and hostel software. Involved managing a lot of student, faculty data which I have covered in my SOP to suit my profile for DS/ML.

Final Yr project is detecting duplicate questions in Quora. Aims at automating the software to detect duplicate questions using NLP and ML. Currently in development.

Couple of minor projects, some in ML, some in web development.

2 month internship at a startup as a role of a back-end developer. Again, not related to DS/ML but have tried to encorporate in my SOP.

Unfortunately no publications or research papers.

Attended Microsoft student partner workshops
Shortlisted in Transform Maharashtra for developing a solution to a universal problem faced my people in India.
10 MUNs attended including 2 CMUNs and was the Under-Secretary General of my school MUN (JMUN).
Winner of national level spelling bee competition in 9th grade(is it worth mentioning it in my SOP).

Recommendations.
Project Guide, VJTI
Associate Professor, VJTI
Head of Examintion Department, VJTI
All 3 are strong recommendations.

Some universities I shortlisted.

1 Super Safe
SDSU/SJSU (SJSU seems to be better than SDSU)

3-4 Safe/Mod
NEU
UF
NCSU
USC
UW (MS in IM. It has a DS course plus the name of UW )

4-5 Ambitious
CMU (MCDS program since the CS one may be too ambitious)
GaTech
UCSD
UCLA
UPenn

Application costs and tuition fees are not much of an issue.
So would it be wise to apply to 6-8 ambitious schools plus the 4-5 safe/mod schools?

Is there too much of a difference between the placements of schools like UCSD vs NEU vs SJSU? Cause I have been told that university rankings do not matter that much for MS in CS.
