Very good GRE. Overall, a very good package. My recommended list is:

Ambitious
Cornell or Purdue
Georgia Tech
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities
Texas A&M University, College Station
UMASS, Amherst

Moderate
North Carolina State University, Raleigh
Arizona State University
Boston University
Indiana University Bloomington
UCI

Safe
University of South California
Northeastern University
NJIT
RIT
UC Riverside

Your ambitious list was kind of weak. I added few programs to that.

cheers,

EE

Thank you for your response.

I've heard from some people that USC is GPA centered and my GPA is fairly mediocre. What can I do to overcome this weak link in my profile?

For one thing, you need to make an absolutely kick-ass SOP. Read through this thread completely for ideas and guidance on how to start with that process.

Since you have no work-ex, your recommendations would also play a huge part here. Who are they from, and how well do they know your work and potential? That is what matters the most in an LOR as compared to the credentials of the recommender.

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.
