Requesting a profile evaluation from seniors.

Applying for MS in Computer Science for Fall 2017.

During college years I participated in many co curricular and extra curricular activities. I was also head of some student committees. I have 4 years of experience working as NSS committee member (social service)

My BE final year project was a Voice Biometric attendance system on android platform, and i achieved good marks in it.


Work Experience: 1.5 years
Worked as UX designer at one of the top 5 UX studios in India.

I have LORs from HoD, Dean of Academics (also my BE project guide), and one from ex-employee (my reporting manager) at the company.

Universitites Applied:

2) NEU
3) NYU Tandon (Polytechnic)
4) SUNY Buffalo
5) Syracuse (Reject recieved)
6) SJSU

As I was told that Syracuse is SAFE, and i still got a reject. Please tell me if I need to apply to more universities.

Also suggest me 2 more SAFE universities.

Help me choose between these UCs or suggest the best but SAFE UC. The choice needs to be SAFE for my profile.
1) UC Riverside
2) UC Fullerton

Thank you.

Your biggest weakness is your GPA which is < 3.0. Way less.

There is no CSU Riverside. It is UC Riverside. Fullerton, north ridge, Long Beach and CSU LA may work out.

Thank you Edulix_Editor . Just to be clear, which of these UCs should be safe for me?? Riverside, Fullerton, Northridge, Long Beach, and LA. If I had to apply to 2 of these, which one should I apply? (High chance of admits)
(I've heard UCLA is hard to get into.)

Again, you seem to confuse CSU and UC systems.

CSU campuses I advise you to apply to:

CSU Long Beach
CSU Northridge
CSU Fullertone
CSU Los Angeles

I have not recommended any UC system to you. They need high GPA and GRE.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

All the UC's (Riverside, SD,LA, Irvine, Davis) will be very difficult (v ambi) due to the low GPA, unless you can show them stellar performance at your work place. UC Mercer may be slightly gettable but even then it will be a 15% and that is a best case scenario.
1) USC - v ambi
2) NEU - ambi
3) NYU Tandon (Polytechnic) - mod+/ambi
4) SUNY Buffalo - v ambi
5) Syracuse (Reject recieved) - was ambi
6) SJSU - mod+
7) UTD - v ambi
8) SUNY Binghamton - mod
9) UIC - mod+

CSU Long Beach - mod
CSU Northridge - safe/mod
CSU Fullertone - mod
CSU Los Angeles - safe
(my evals for the CSU's may not be accurate)

The UC's are very different from CSU's although CSU are feeder schools to some UC's.
Your list is heavily tilted towards ambitious universities and on top of that you have applied for Spring when admits are generally lower than Fall intake (this is a generalization).

I think you might do better than those CSU's. GPA hurts like EE Sir says but where did seniors similar to your UG scores go to ? If you don't convert your GPA to 4.0, you might have a chance (not much at UC though )

Please don't PM me unless it is a personal question. Most answers can benefit others in the community by tagging in the forum.
