*Shameless plug begins* OP, have you looked at the MSA program offered by NC State? It was the first such program in the nation, and they have a great and long-standing collaboration with SAS that will be beneficial for trying to get internships/jobs after your MS. *end of plug*

Now that I'm done plugging, I'd recommend you drop Notre Dame and/or SMU from your list, the primary reason being location. While the location shouldn't be your primary factor for choosing the schools on your list, it shouldn't be ignored either because it plays an important part for the career of an international student. For the field you're aiming for, personally, I'd recommend applying to schools primarily in the northeast, PNW (Pacific northwest - meaning Seattle primarily, and then to a lesser extent, Portland), the bay area, SoCal (los Angeles/orange county/Riverside/Anaheim/Irvine more than San Diego) or the research triangle park region in NC (Raleigh-Durham-chapel hill - because SAS is headquartered here and FYI, interesting fact: SAS was founded by an NCSU alumnus). Anyway, if you're interesting in knowing more of my opinions on this matter, go through the posts I've linked to in point #2 below.

1) Please mention as many details as possible about your academics, research and work-ex, in terms of projects worked on, technologies used, roles/responsibilities handled, papers published/presented, awards/honors obtained, etc. All those have to be put in the misc details section of your UniSearch profile if you expect any help on Edulix. Also, before requesting for profile evaluations, please go through this excellent post.

2) Please take some time out to read these three threads in their entirety. PLEASE do that before asking questions about universities from a comparison perspective, or jobs, or coursework, or H-1B visas, or "placements", irrespective of which univ/department/program/major you're applying to.

I love to read, and then I regurgitate. I write - a lot - as my posts here and on other outlets would show. I do not make apologies for what I write (and how long it is). I do not sugarcoat things either. I don't tolerate vague questions, for any reasons - ignorance arising out of an inability to locate information when the necessary tools to do so (i.e. the internet, libraries, university websites, other forums/bulletin boards, etc.) are readily available, is not any kind of an acceptable excuse.
