    Thank you so much dear pHacidic
    A very prompt reply from your side

    Should I go ahead with applying to these universities ?
    I have purposely not included Safe ones as I want to go to a reputed Univ else I'll get some relevant work exp and apply next year. Is this a sound decision ?

    Well, you may proceed with this list, your profile is good enough to get into any of above colleges, but for your backlogs, can't be certain how much that will affect.
