      Please help me,

      I have a GRE score of 303 and a toefl of 105. doing my undergraduate in Civil Engineering. my average is about "B" for undergrad. This is my last sem and I took Information systems paper and intro to SAP in addition to my civil papers. i have applied to UIC, UTD, USF, USC, RIT, central michican for spring 2013.....UIC already rejected me for MIS. I thought this college will be an easy placement given its ranking of around 150. Now, i have serious doubts about getting into any of the coleeges i applied to.

      Please suggest what i should do. Im very confused.
