U have to study day and night with out rest like that . Can u please solve my issue whether I want to change to cs or continue in EE but I want to do my masters in CS.
    Hope you can give some important information regarding CS in UMKC.
    waiting for your reply.

  2. Hi sir,

  3. Hello Sir,
    thank you for the upload … awesom this is what i was looking for…
    by the way sir I have a score of
    315(q-162 v-153) in gre
    100 in toefl
    and my aggre % till sem 6 is 62%
    i am trying for ms in cs could you please please tell me what should be the range of university ranks in which i can get into sir please suggest me some names alos… do i have a shot at universities in top 20 or there is no use of trying in top 20 with these scores..???
    Thanx!!

    • Hello Akash,

      Getting into the top 20 would be an Ambitious one. Because these Top Universities generally requires you to score 325 and above in GRE and 110 and above in TOEFL… But I have always said that Universities go for a Holistic Approach. They check all the parameters before deciding whether to give you admit or not. The parameters include GRE+TOEFL+GPA+SOP+LOR. There are cases when Students get admitted even though they do not satisfy the minimum GRE and TOEFL Score because of there Excellent SOP and Excellent LOR… So you can try these Universities but it is good to keep them in Ambitious Universities list of yours and not in the Safe Universities list..

      • OMG you replied.. thank you so much sir… really appreciated!!!

        Sir this is what i have thought
        3-4 universities -hci (top universitites for Human computer intraction, as i have a lot of intrest in the subject so will be applying univesities like cmu umich etc)

        5 univerities for ms in range of top 20(eg perdue etc etc depends on deadlines also as i dont have a lot of time like i have already missed 15 dec deadlines =( )

        5 universities in range of 21-50 for ms.

        am i on the correct track ?? or should change something like change the limit from 0-30 and 30-50???

        -Thanx !!

        • That’s good that you are Aiming at top 50 Universities. But you should also include Universities which are below top 50 which is considered to be Safe Universities.

          The Range of 30-50 Can be Considered as Moderate Universities for you. The Range of 50 and Below can be considered as Safe Universities.

          How abt your GPA? Which University are you from? Because Your GPA also plays a major role while applying to Top Universities.

          So preparing a List of Only Ambitious and Moderate Universities can be risky. Include Universities that you consider it as safe and can easily get into. In your case 50 or 60 and below Rank.

  4. GRE : 332
    TOEFEL: 114
    GPA : 3.1/4
    Work Ex : 1 year
    SOPs :8.5/10
    LORs :8/10
    Papers(Journals): 2
    I am aiming for top 20 universities for specialization in computer science. is it too ambitious ?

    • Aiming the Top 20 University is always ambitious no matter the Profile… But with respect to your Profile you should give it a good try by preparing a good and precise SOP and a good LOR from your Professors… I would suggest you to apply to the top 20 Universities as you will have a chance. Your GPA is a little low when you are applying for Top 20 Universities but do apply and give it a try. All the very Best.

  5. Thanks for the information sir.
    i have doubts regarding Florida international univ.
    -sir is it good for MS in computer science? i heard that it is only good for MBA,is it real?
    -Are there any good placements(on FIU campus and off campus),internships after my MS ?
    -Sir, Is FIU’s MS in CS degree a prestigious one?

      • Thank u sir,
        sir, I am a Btech final year student in Computer science now.
        what will be the difference for me if i do MS in IT ?
        are MS in IT and MS in CS both equal?
        -which is best among Dakota state univ(have only MS in IT) and North dakota state univ for MS in CS?
        -i have gre-284, toefl- not written, acads-68% with no backlogs, intern for 3 months… can i get admitted for north dakota state univ?

        • I suppose there are not many Univ that offer MS in IT than MS in CS. Both will more or less have similar curriculum.

          North dakota state univ is good when compared to Dakota state univ.

          Your GRE Score is very low for North Dakota state univ. But prepare a good SOP and LOR and get a good score in TOEFL. If you can do this then you have a fighting chance

  6. Hello sir,Thanks for useful website..
    – Is northern kentucky university (nku) good for MS in CS?
    -How is the visa acceptance rate for nku?
    – which tier is NKU?

    • It’s ranked good in Regional Univ. in the South. Visa Acceptance rate is also good for it. I would put that NKU is a little low tier Univ. Try to apply for Univ. which are better than NKU.

  7. Hi iam Satish.

    GRE – 314/340 (Q-167,V-147)
    TOEFL – yet to take
    ACADEMICS-8.15/10.

    Work Exp : 1 + years

    Suggest me universities please…

  8. Hello sir, i got an i20 from university of south alabama for MS in CIS.Thanks alot for your guidance.i have few doubts.please kindly clear them sir.
    1) university informed me that i have to give a placement exam on Object Oriented Programming and databases on orientation day.it is a prerequisite for MS that i need to pass.so, is it tough to crack? if i failed in it by chance then what will happen sir?
    2) seniors informed me that CIS is tough at that univ.so,can i change my group after going there i.e, MS in CIS to MS in IS? univ also issues i20’s for MS in IS right so, if seats r full in IS then can’t i change to IS?
    3) sir,where should i buy a mobile phone ..here in india or after going to USA? r there any good plans in USA like free phone offers,etc. is it better to buy a phone in US or it’s better to carry one from india?
    thanks for maintaining a useful site sir.it’s really helping alot. :)

    • 1) It’s just that they will assess you based on your performance in test. If performance is not good then they will give you this subject as pre-requisite.

      2) It depends on your interest. If you are interested in CIS then go for it and do not fear about what others say.

      3) Buy it in US itself. If you have one in India then carry that with you.

      • thank u for the reply sir. normally, is the change from CIS to IS possible on orientation day itself? i mean, CIS and IS come under computer science right so, does professors check my application again(gre,toefl etc) for announcing decision ? or they accept the change from cis to IS immediately.. some are saying that change is possible only after 1 semester..is it true? and
        – The fees mentioned in my i20 is 25000 dollars/year so, how much should i show for visa.. is 17 lakhs enough to get success???

    • Firstly, no need to give IELTS since you have given TOEFL.

      Your shortlisted Univ. are good but some of them require a slightly higher GRE or TOEFL Score. I would suggest you to prepare a good SOP and get a good LOR from your professors to increase your chances in these Univ.

      • Thank u. Could u suggest some safe universities for my profile in my specialization. So that i have a fall back option, if i need one. Much appreciated.

          • Thank You, Sir. Could u please let me know the moderate ambitious and safe univ for my profile among these-

            RIT
            ASU
            U MASS_Amherst
            SUNY_Buffalo/Stony Brook

            Ohio State
            UC-davis
            Purdue univ-West Lafayette

            All these univ are my basic shortlist.I am sure to have an excellent SOP, a LOR by IISc professors and from my own project guide/HOD.

  12. Hi Raghav
    I am planning to write my GRE/TOFEL in sep2013 and looking for FALL2014 admission
    Please suggest me some Ambitiious/Moderate/Safe universities as per their placements/TA/internship, low tuition fee and education.
    Here is my profile:
    10th- 74%
    12th-77%
    B.Tech(IT)- 74%
    Work Experience: 3 years (By Aug14)
    Expected GRE score- 305-320
    Expected Tofel score- 100

    Here are some more things which i am just thinking to tell but not sure whether it will add value or increase any chance for mt application :(
    I have experience in Insurance Domain and working as Software Developer in CSC India. Having SCJP and SCWCD as certifications and having exposure in cutting edge technology like Spring, Android and Web Servcies.

    Thanks a ton in advance bro.Looking forward for a quick reply.

    • Your Profile is really good. Your work experience will really play a good role while applying to the Univs. If you score above 310 in GRE and above 100 in TOEFL then surely you can go for Univs like USC, ASU, Rochester, NEU, SJSU, UTA etc.

      But until you give your GRE exam and get a specific score, it will be a little difficult to enlist the Univs that you can go for. But I can say that your profile is really good and you can aim for the Best Univs in USA.

      Make sure you get a good GRE and TOEFL Score. Prepare a good SOP and get good LORs from Professors.

      • Thanks Raghu.
        Will post back with score once again after writing exam.
        Well i have one more doubt (It might sound dummy but still would like to ask :P) …
        1)I have some of my colleague in CSC LA, calfornia. Will it(network and relation with them) help me to find out the job there And is the chances are good for me to get a job easily there??
        2)I am planning to write GRE first and then TOFEL. so for sending score to universities, i need to send the same choice of universities in both exams .. right??

        • YOu can call me Shrinivas rather than Raghu. Secondly, Yes networking place a very crucial roles for getting jobs in USA. Yes if you wish to. If you plan to apply for some other Univs then select those Univs.

    I have an admit from University of Rochester for MS Computer Science Fall 2014 with 50% tuition waiver.
    I am in a dilemma whether to join UR or not.
    I have not been able to gather much first hand experience of students and alumni. From internet I have seen that the university is research oriented having limited intake. But not much info has been there for graduate studies. Not many Indians apply here either.
    I have another admit from Ohio State University, a university higher in ranking but very expensive.

    Any inputs on this will be helpful

  69. Hi,
    My GRE score is 170 (Quant) + 155 (Verbal). GPA from a college in Bangalore is 9.46. I’m interested in pursuing an MS course in Data/Business Analytics. Though I haven’t had any research publication, I have done a data-centric internship and a few projects in that field. I’m planning to have 1-2 years of experience in the field of business intelligence, before applying for universities. I’m aiming at CMU, UCB, UIUC. Is that reasonable? What other univs can I aim at?

    • UIUC, UCB and CMU universities are quite ambitious. Your profile is great and you should definitely apply in these. Apart from these UMTC is starting MS Data Science in Fall 2015 which you can consider. University of Utah also has great program in Data Science. Consider a few moderate to safe universities for your profile like SUNY-SB, USC. Do not just apply to ambitious universities only.

  70. Hi Srinivas

    My younger sister has done MCA from Banasthali Vidyapeeth (Rajyasthan) scored 67%. Currently working with IBM as software developers since Aug 2013. I want her to go USA for further studies. Please suggest which course should we apply under which universities.

    Waiting for quick response.

  71. B Tech- 6.98
    GRE- 313 (Verbal=150, Quant=163, AWA=3.5)
    IELTS-7.5
    Work Exp-1.4 years
    Projects- 2 major projects, no publications
    Good SOP and LORs
    Universities:
    UNC, Charlotte (CS)- Reject
    SUNY, Albany (CS)- Reject
    SUNY, Binghamton (CS)- Reject
    Illinois State Univ (IS)- Admit
    University of North Dakota (CS)-Admit with $4250 funding

    All applied in March for FALL 2014.

    I know, the admits are not good enough as per profile, so what would you suggest? To go for MS now or again wait one more year? If go for MS, then which one between Univ of North Dakota for CS or Illinois State Univ for IS? Is going for Ph D in CS or; finding a job after MS going to be hard with MS from these universities? Job is most priority.

  72. Hi,
    My GRE score is 315 with TOEFL 105.
    2 years experience in a medium scale software company.
    I’ve got the below list. Would you suggest any more universities and whether the one’s I’m aiming at are too ambitious. I know they are a little too ambitious, but still you’re inputs would be more helpful. Also would like to know if some of them are good enough for CS. Also which other universities would you suggest?

    List-
    UCI, UCSC, UNC, USC, Purdue University West Lafayette, UMass

    Are UCLA and UCSD out of my league?

    Thanks for you help in advance.

    • You CGPA / %age? Do you have any research work?
      UCI, UCSD, UCLA, Purdue, UNC need a combination of good academics, projects, test scores and research. Purdue does’t even ask for GRE score so your profile should be based on above factors minus GRE.
      UMass which campus? Amherst? That’s again not as ambitious as Purdue or UNC but still its ambitious.
      USC you can get if you have good grades and some projects.

  73. Hi,
    My TOEFL score is 94(R-24, L-25, S-20, W-25)
    GRE 305(v-145, Q-160)
    2+ yr of IT experience.
    B.Tech- 8.2

    Please suggest some colleges to apply, as I feel TOEFL Speaking score is low.
    Eyeing on Spring 2015 session.

    Thanks in advance

    I’m really looking for some financial Aid/ scholarships
    Universities:

    • If possible I would suggest you to retake GRE as 290 is kind of on the lower side. With your experience, if you get a good GRE Score, you will certainly land up in a good ranked University.

      The University list is fine with respect to your score. Getting an Financial Aid would be tough but you will get assistantships when you get a good grade for that subject. There will be part-time jobs as well that you may work for a while.

    I dont think my score can be accepted from Rudgers or Princton.
    Planning to do MS in Software Engineering. Can anyone help me in letting know how is the job prospect after doing MS in Software engineering from New Jersey Institute of Technology.

    • I have 2.5 year of experience as QA Analyst in IT. I have done my btech in Biotechnology from VIT. Please suggest me if NJIT is the right college for me to invest my money for MS.

  112. Hi Raghav,

    Need your advice for selecting universities. Am planning to take up masters in comp science for Jan’2016.Below is a small overview:

    GRE-294
    TOEFL-109
    B.Tech – 8/10(no backlogs)
    12th- 74%
    10th- 86%
    Project- .net based on image processing
    2 years of consolidated work experience – 1 year in logistics; 6 months as technical support executive for Verizon and 6 months as Customer Support Engineer in a startup.

    Could you suggest Ambitious/Moderate/Safe Universities in accordance with their tuition fees(cant afford dear ones) /placements/TA with 2 unis for each category.
    My friends are suggesting not to go for wright state and want me to apply for better universities; but the GRE score is too low for that. Do you think it would be better to write GRE one more time and go for AUG’2016.
    Delaying plans is not something that i give too much favor to, but if there is scope to land a good university if I wait, I will consider it.

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance !

  146. Which university is better Stevens Institute of Technology or Cal sate Fullerton for MS in computer science?
    I would like to consider university based on following points
    -Education Quality
    -Placements
    -Weather (least priority though)
    -cost of living

    I see that fees is higher at Stevens than Cal state Fullerton, but if the all over ratings of Stevens is higher than cal state Fullerton then I believe Stevens a good option.

  153. Hi Raghav,

    I have got 5 admits for different Masters programs from different universities and I would need your advice around which one to choose looking at better future prospects. Below are details of the colleges for which I have got admit;

    1.University of Nevada, Las Vegas – MS in Computer Science – With Assistantship
    2.University of Nevada, Las Vegas – MS in Management Information system & MBA – With Assistantship
    3.Indiana University Bloomington – MS in Computer Science
    4.Indiana University Bloomington – MS in Data Science
    5.University of Texas, Dallas – MS in Computer Science

    Now I am really confused over which course and college would be better in terms of different opportunities. I hope you might have some insights around these courses and different opportunities available. As per my research, Data Science has some ample opportunities and some quality of technical work including research, but I have also heard of MIS and MBA to be a better combination in terms of long term opportunities and demands.

    Should I opt for traditional Computer Science track or go for Data Science ? or Should I opt for management stream and go for MIS/MBA course ? Can you please provide me some guidance and useful thoughts over these options ?

    Since I have an experience of 4 years of Mainframe application development, I am not really interested into programming or software development. I am more interested in the research oriented courses which would land in different research opportunities and if not possible management area is also one of my area of interest if I have to choose job going forward.

    Can you please provide some suggestions over above queries ?

    Thanks,
    Sanket
