    though ur gre quant may be a little bit on the lesser side, ur profile is very good and so gre wouldn pull it down...admits are a sure shot for u...for PhD, ur cgpa sounds for funding, well most PhDs are funded in the USA. So u stand good chances with tht.

    as for ur chances -

    New York University - should be safe

    Northeastern University - very safe

    University of Southern California. - Gettable (but its a lil expensive)

    University of Utah - within reach (and I've read tht the state of Utah is doing good)

    University of Illinois, Chicago. - Safe (plus they offer aid in EE dept to only PhD students)

    Oregon State university - moderate chances (mainly cuz its a little picky at times)

    Oklahoma State University, Stillwater - safe

    Louisiana State University - safe

    University of Missouri-Rolla. - Safe

    University of Pittsburgh. - Its ranked quite high, but u stand good chances

    University of Oklahoma, Norman (OK) - am not entirely sure

    University of South Alabama, Mobile (AL) - ditto

    West Virginia University - ditto

    Univ. of North Carolina, Charlotte - moderate (applicants are very high in this state)

    Univ Of Cincinnati, Cincinnati,OH - moderate

    Univ of missouri, kansas city - safe

    University of Houston. - Mod (lotta applicants)

    Univ of Missouri, Columbia - think its called Missouri univ of science and technology now.... - within reach

    Univ of Texas, Elpaso - not sure
    University of Missisippi. - Moderate

    Texas State University. - Not sure

    Actually I can see tat u've applied to a good mix of univs tat u stand good chance at....but pls do remember tat PhD admits are based entirely on how many profs are available for pls do email profs in the colleges well in advance.

    Also u may try unis like ufl, Rutgers, Iowa state, northwestern etc....check out their research areas
