Hello,

I'm aiming for Fall 2018, Master's in CS with specialization in Machine Learning. I know that my GPA isn't great, and so I'd like to evaluate my options before attempting GRE (exp. 320 +) and TOEFL (exp ~110), both of which are scheduled for September end. I have good rapport with the professors and decent SOP/LORs.

Following are my achievements/skills :

1. 3 month internship in data analytics and analysis.
2. A paper published through IEEE funded conference.
3. A couple of papers in National Journal
4. A Machine Learning project, with a provisional patent for the same.
5. Conducted a couple of workshop on Machine Learning, Web development in various colleges.
6. Good programming skills.
7. Great experience with *nix Operating Systems. Built and modified a FreeBSD kernel to optimize memory and scheduling.

I'm thinking about applying for the following universities, and would like to know which of them would be really plausible, and how they rank with regards to my profile:

* University of Maryland Country Park (Dream)
* Georgia Tech (Dream)
* University of Chicago
* North Carolina State University (Dream)
* Ohio State University (Dream)
* Arizona State University
* SJSU
* NEU Boston
* University of Florida
* PennState Uni
* University of Minnesota TC

Thanks for reading and helping me out!


Regards.

As we always say in Edulix, please fill out your Unisearch profile. That helps us get a good understanding of your background and hence offer a well-tailored response.

In the meantime, here is a starting recommended list....(assuming 320 GRE)

Ranked:
GT
NCSU
VT (yes, ranked for GRE of 320)

Moderate
Buffalo
Stony Brook
ASU

Safe
The usual suspects like USC, UTD, SJSU, etc....


More later......

cheers,

EE

Can you let me know about the chances of getting into OSU, GaTech, NCSU, etc. ? I highly rate them as a good university for Machine Learning, and I would love to get admitted to those kinds of universities.

Regards.

I don't really want to paint any rosy picture until I have more details. Please link your publications or cite them in the miscellaneous section. Decent publications can carry significant weight in those schools.

Not very active due to work commitments. Please explore this site and then tag.

The thing is, 2 of them are under review (International journal) and the conference for the third paper for IEEE is in December. So I don't really have anything as of now to say/post about. But I'm 100% sure both of them will get published, and will also have the conference acceptance letter or maybe even get done with the conference by the time I apply. All three of them are based on Machine Learning.

Also, we (my team) have a provisional patent for our project in Machine Learning. Does that have any impact and leverage my profile?


Regards.

Please provide links to the journals and conference proceedings website.

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.
