    Thank you Akshay...I want to know if it is worth to do MS in singapore? How are the job opportunities in Singapore after MS in Electrical Engineering [VLSI]?
    Actually my CPI is very low..its only 6.5. I may not get a great university in US. So I am thinking of trying for NUS or NTU instead of some normal univs in US.
    What do u suggest(for VLSI)?? Some normal Univ in US or Good univ in Singapore??
    Plz reply...Thanku

    US is a better option than Singapore. You'll end up spending almost similar kinda money there, it's worth to spend in US.

    I think the IIT tag in your profile should speak for itself. You should also try talking to some of your profs who might have contact in some of the universities there and might have been a visiting faculty there. In that case, their LoRs would do wonders.

    I wouldn agree with the first part. Singapore is an equally good option...jobs in US are tough off late. Should improve in a few years hopefully....as for ur iit tag, yes it would help. But u still ought to consider what is the topper's cpi in ur batch...cuz percentile ranking also matters. Ur iit tag may give u an edge over a 7.1 GPA student of another univ, but if ur up against an 8.5 GPA where the topper is 9.0, then it'll become tough.

    Try for good lors....u can still get decent unis in US. But u'll still require a good sop and lors....as for Singapore, u can give it a shot even now....whether US or Singapore, it depends on your personal flair when it comes to jobs....also permanent residency in US takes almost 9 to 12 years nowadays.
