VTech would be ambitious, UCI would be moderate, and USC would be a safe-mod. Also, consider applying to schools like Rutgers, UMN, Iowa State, GaTech which tend to take in applicants with previous work-ex.


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 .
Could you also help me categorize these - Rutgers, UMN, Iowa State, GaTech into mod, safe and ambi?

Rutgers, Iowa State would be mod and GaTech and UMN would be mod-ambi.

Your profile is interesting; please see my PM regarding a potential spot in my security research group.

Also, here is a list of schools that may fit your profile and interests:

My Initial List -
US Santa Barbara (super-ambitious, but worth a shot)
UC IRVINE (ambitious)
Virginia Tech (ambitious)
Univ. of Florida (ambitious)
USC (moderate-ambitious)
NCSU (moderate-ambitious)
William & Mary (moderate-ambitious)
NEU (moderate-ambitious)
Univ. of Utah (moderate)
Arizona State (moderate)
SUNY Buffalo (safe)
Indiana University Bloomington (safe)
(I think you need one more safe, but I am not sure which school)
