HI,

I completed my Undergraduate degree in Computer Science (Honors) from a well known institute in India, My overall GPA score is 3.7 and I am currently interning at an R&D Company for a period of six months. I am writing GRE and Toefl in November 2012. I plan on doing my Post graduation in Software engineering from USA .I have a few questions about pursuing Masters in CS from USA.

1.How good is my GPA for top 20 universities for the course?
2.As 16yrs of Education (10+2+4) is almost mandatory in most universities for Masters in US, What are my chances of being waived off with the requirement? I have been trying to find out which all universities accept students with 15 yrs of education overall. I tried contacting few universities asking the same, but they replied saying it all depends on the documents I submit and my grades. I would love to believe them, but i do not want to apply thinking they will waive off the 16 yr education rule and accept my application but end up being rejected.Sad
3.What GRE score will compensate my deficit?Confused
4.Finally, Which universities do you suggest me to apply to, given my background? Smile
Please please help

Thanks in advance

1.GPA is only one of the many factors. The GPA doesn't count much unless you are a topper in the university. Your profile as in the papers published in any top journals, research experience etc. matters and in certain cases relevant work-ex matters and it depends on the program you are applying to.

2.Some US universities offer bridge courses for students who have only 15 years of education at the completion of their undergraduate degree. However only when offered an admit the department might place you in a bridge program if necessary at their discretion.But it is an expensive option because you will spend three years.

A one year PG diploma in your related field will make up for the fourth year of a US undergrad degree.

But if you still have doubts, its better to contact the universities

3.GRE score will not compensate for anything. It is just an eligibility criteria and is primarily used to filter out applicants from the larger pool.

4. No suggestion, spoon feeding. You come up with a list and we help you to refine the list.

My daughter has 15 yrs education having completed her Bachelor's in Computer Science. Her GPA is 3.77 and TOEFL score is 114. She will be taking up her GRE soon and is expecting a score of around 300. Would Arizona State University be a good option for her?

Thanks,

Vinodini
