    hi akshay,
    i am dheerendra nath from bangalore. i want to pursue my ms in us. my percentage is 64.89 but i have had quite a few backlogs(6 - all cleared) due to some personal problems. my final year aggregate is 73.95. i have done my project from Indian institute of science bangalore n obtained 196/200 for it. i have attended a few national level workshops and also won a national level science exhibition and a robotics tournament. my question is the following: will it be of any use applying to us with the number of backlogs tat i have had? i can get good reco from the place have studied and also from wer i did my project but will it be of any use. what are my chances to getting a decent university? i haven't written gre yet as i wanted to clarify this issue before i proceed further.
    hoping you can answer my questions.
