Because GRE < 310, the final list should be heavy on moderate and safe programs.

Final list should have 2 ranked, 4 moderate and 4 safe.

Ranked
NCSU
TAMU
UCD
UFL

Moderate
UCSC
UCI
Virginia Tech
ASU

Safe
Stony Brook
SDSU
SJSU
NJIT

Thank you Edulix_Editor for evaluating my profile. I have some questions to ask
1. I am really aiming for Stony Brook,NCSU,TAMU and UCs like UCI,UCD. Can you please suggest me what more I can do to give a best shot in these universities?
2. Should I add UMTC and UWM in my list?
3. How is Penn State for MS in CS? Although I researched for it, but didn't get much idea about it.
4. Will re-taking GRE in October or November and scoring 310-315 create any advantage for getting admits with the rest same profile?
It will be a great help.
Anymore suggestions from seniors are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Retake the GRE if you can, and the sooner the better. As of right now, I'd say that had you gotten a 320+ GRE score, you'd have good chances of getting into the likes of NCSU, UCI, VTech, GaTech and UMN. Right now, they all seem kinda iffy to me because of your GRE score. Also, I'd recommend you not apply to Penn State and Wisconsin, as well as SDSU and NJIT.

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.

Shift VTech and Stony Brook up to ambi. Drop UCD and TAMU from your list. Add Rutgers/Iowa state/UMN as a moderate pick, and if you want a safe one, apply to IU.

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.
