Your GRE and TOEFL should be good and valid for Fall-18 applications. Needn't to write again.

VTech would be ambi-mod at best, and OSU (assuming this is Ohio State) would be mod at best. And I'd drop UC Davis and replace it with UMN. Also replace CSULB with something better such as NEU/GMU as a 3rd safe.

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 this and this thread 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.

Thanks for the input. I was wondering whether csulb will offer me better intern opportunities because of its location ?

No, CSULB isn't necessarily going to do you any favors just because it's in California. Doesn't work that way. Read through the threads I've pointed to in point #2 below, by clicking on the words "this" in red.

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.
