Fall 2018| GRE-329(159V 170 Q AWA-5)|TOEFL 117|MS|CS|8.33 CGPA| BITS Pilani

Hi, I am a final year undergraduate student. I am planning to apply for MS in CS for fall 2018 . This is my fourth post (Apologies for inconvenience caused). I have filled my UniSearch profile to the best of my knowledge. If there is anything lacking, please do let me know.

Specialization in ML / AI

My profile:
College : BITS Pilani
Degree : B.E. Electronics and Communications
CGPA : 8.33
GRE : 329 (Q=170,V=159) AWA : 5
TOEFL: 117 (29R,30L,28S,30W)

Work Exp:
Internships:
Research internships at Indira Gandhi Center for Atomic Research (IGCAR) and IIT Bombay.

No papers published (1 under review in the field of ML/NLP)

Have done 2 projects in Deep Learning, 1 in Augmented Reality, 1 in NLP and 1 in ML.
I can get good recommendations from the HoD of CS dept, IITB prof and 2 profs at BITS.

I have already filled the following 4 during GRE:

Stanford
CMU
GaTech
Rice

I found the coursework, faculty of the following institutes to be really interesting. Could someone comment on my choices and further let me know if I need to search for more universities?

Columbia (MS in DS)
NYU (MS in DS)
University of Wisconsin Madison (MS in CS)
University of Waterloo (MS in CS)
University of Southern California (MS in CS)
UCSD (MS in CS)
UMass Amherst (MS in CS)
Texas A&M University (MS in CS)

Stanford - ambi
CMU - ambi
GaTech - mod-ambi
Rice - ambi
Columbia (MS in DS) - ambi
NYU (MS in DS) - mod
University of Wisconsin Madison (MS in CS) - ambi
University of Waterloo (MS in CS) - ambi
University of Southern California (MS in CS) - safe-mod
UCSD (MS in CS) - mod
UMass Amherst (MS in CS) - ambi
Texas A&M University (MS in CS) - ambi

Your list is too top-heavy. I'd recommend not applying to Waterloo, TAMU, and adding a few mod and safe schools in your 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. 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.

Thank you so much for your insights. Could you suggest some safe/mod universities where I can try?
