    Profile Evaluation for MS in embedded systems

    Hello Seniors,
    Here is my profile: (applying for spring 2013)
    gre - 1460 (v-690,q-770,awa-3.0)
    toefl - 105 (27,27,writing - 29, speaking - 22)
    undergraduate aggregate - 65% (1 dead KT in 1st sem in C++)

    decent sop and lor

    - 2 months internship in Embedded systems company (reco letter from rnd head)
    - 2nd prize for BE project
    - Vlsi project finalist in Cadence Design contest 2011 (national)

    - "Advanced Robotics and embedded systems development course" at technophilia systems
    - Many workshops.
    - 2 papers selected at conferences but I did not publish them

    Had applied to asu(cs), uc boulder, usc, ncsu, gatech, cmu, upenn, ucsd and uc irvine in fall 2012 (all rejects) (not same profile as above - all that is recent)


    Now I am thinking of applying to:
    1. asu (ce-ee) (application submitted)
    2. uc boulder (appln submitted)
    3. umass amherst (appln submitted)
    4. iowa state univ
    5. sjsu
    6. neu or utd (both don't have good courses for embedded, suggest if other univs available)

    Your advice needed ....kindly help

    Had already applied to ncsu. was rejected in fall. (ncsu needs 70% and above) And not as good courses as cmu or boulder or asu. BTW my application is being reconsidered at cmu wihout a fee. They do this to all fall rejects. Forgot to mention above.

    Any other universities this spring with very good coursework in embedded?

    hey how good is neu or utd.....found very few courses in embedded....sjsu has a tremendous embedded coursework in ce....
    Saw kentucky.....it is not having good courses. plus rank is really low. Can I get a university between 50 to 100 rank and really good in embedded.

    Was surprised by your answer to IOWA state (within reach).

    And what does within reach mean - safe or moderate?

    Apart from acads ur profile is good. For Spring admits apart from normal criteria which universities consider, number of left over seats in Fall is also imp.
    Even ASU and CU looks for good acads.

    wht is NEU? did u check utd course? as if u r not fine with UK i dont think UTD course will impress u and Utd is gud for communications

    So I mentioned within reach as u have Chances of getting into these univ. I cnt tell safe because of ur acads.
