      Hi,

      Your academic and score profile is very good. Reputation of your UG college will also count. If you do a good job with your recommendation letters and personal statement, you should be able to get into most of the above programs you picked. With your profile (unless you are from IITs or BITs), I recommend you focus more in the 15-40 ranked schools. Except for Illinois State, all other programs you picked are very good schools. Also, realize that "Software Engineering" is not offered as a degree is most US schools. You should decide if you want to get into "Computer Engineering" or "Computer Science" programs first - depends on your career and academic goals. "Software Engineering" is usually a specialization within Computer Science area.

      You should also consider other good programs like Penn State, Ohio State, Rutgers, Arizona State, NC State, Univ of NC, etc. Also consider that deadlines are approaching for Fall 2013 applications - most of them are in Dec/Jan. Good luck!!
