Hello deepali,

Please mention about your work experience more: profile, employer. One-liner about the good projects. Please mention in brief about your experience of US bank, profile, skills.
Second, please trim the list to 12-14 Universities you had put above. None would be able to sort, evaluate the list you have put.

Will not answer any PM, instead tag.
Until you understand this thread, keep reading it. Unless, and until you understand it, please try avoiding to apply to US.
Tag me if I could be of any help.

First of all, Please correct your tags. You do not have to put spaces after "[" and before "]".

You have fairly good profile, although I cannot provide completely accurate feedback [due to lack of a detailed profile post].

Also, I had a pretty similar profile [you happen to have more work ex, however, I had a couple papers]. Please follow the links in my signature, they might be of help to you.

Next, I have to say that you have not done your research at all and have just listed down the top 30 universities for MS CS. I'm sorry but no one would be able to help unless you shortlist universities a bit on your own. Maybe converge onto 15 universities, and we can help you trim down to 10-11.

Q: How to shortlist universities?
A: Find which universities are doing pioneering work in your area of interest. See their profs, and see if you find their work interesting. Look for unis location - does it suit you or not. How much is the tuition? How is social life? Also see where their latest alumni are working - Linkedin is a good tool for this. Find alumni of that university on facebook/quora etc and approach them and ask them if you're making the right choice. Make an excel sheet, have each uni as a row, and list out various characteristics that you care about as columns. Fill it up, and prioritize. Trim down on a select few. While you do that, make sure you have a mix of unis - 1-2 ultra ambi, 2-3 ambi, 2-3 mod+, 1-2 safe+. When you select a uni, ask yourself, "If I get rejected from all others, and this is the only option, will I be happy to go there?" If the answer is yes, add it. Else move on to the next.
