    Most Universities have a minimum requirement of 4, especially the ones on your list. What is the topper's GPA? Also, some paper publications would help strengthen your profile and potray your passion for research. I know people with your AWA Score who've still gotten into very good Uni's (Cornell, etc.) with good grades, so I'm sure that won't be the dealbreaker if you're armed with strong SOPs and LORs.

    The above universities have no minimum gre score requirement .However they never mentioned if low scores reduces the chances ... no publications , so concentrating on my SOP ... any advise on SOP ?

    Wait, don't UIUC and UTA have a minimum GRE requirement?

    Anyway, incorporate these guidelines in your SOP:

    1. Make your SOP a statement focussed on your career goals, rather than an exhaustive list of all your activities that are not related to your majoring field. There's always your resume for that.
    2. Your SOP has to stand out. Explain your passion for research, motivational factors, and why you think the college is right for you. Some recommend (like UMich, Ann Arbor) to show that you've researched their research areas and know what's going on. Others strongly advise you to keep the SOP to yourself. Be sure to go through SOP guidelines in each website before you start.
    3. Keep 3-4 drafts ready and get them reviewed by people in this field, or people who have been admitted to MS. Read SOPs of admits from top Unis.
    4. Praising the college and launching into verbal rigmaroles is not impressive, just mention why you think you are right for the college.

    These are my two cents.
