I'd drop UMass and Rice from your list. Consider instead schools like Rutgers, Minnesota, Wisconsin, NC state.

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.

NYU Courant will be highly Ambitious. I suggest you apply universities as The_Observer suggest i.e. Rutgers, NC State, Uni of Minnesota. One of good yet Safe universities for your profile will be SUNY Buffalo and Northeastern. Canadian Universities have very less international student seats which makes competition extremely tough and selected students need to very good research and academic profile. If you wish to apply to Europe, I will suggest you to apply to 2 great universities i.e. TU Delft and TU Munich. Both are might be ambitious but applying will be worthy.

Thanks a lot. I guess I'll have to trim the ambitious universities from my list and look into European universities. This is my list for now:

UCI
Johns Hopkins
U Michigan
U Chicago
UMinnesota

UC Boulder
UC Davis
UW Madison

Rutgers
NCSU
SUNY Buffalo

Should I go with this list for now? I want to specialize in AI/ML. Are there any schools (where I have a realistic chance) that I am missing?

UCI
Johns Hopkins
U Michigan
U Chicago
U Minnesota
UC Boulder
UC Davis
UW Madison

From the above list, I'd pick UCI, Hopkins, Michigan, UMN, UW, and I'd retain Cornell and/or UCSD from your earlier list.

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.
