    Well a decent score on tests
    - an above average CGPA,
    - impressive project work
    - Assuming effective SOP and LOR

    your profile is a speck above average, yet here is my take :

    1. university of texas, austin - v.v.ambi of texas, A&M - v.v.ambi
    3.columbia university - v.v.ambi

    Just because you are hopeful about doing project in T.I. doesnt grant you an admission into schools located in TEXAS
